Title: Energy conservation is a four-way street

Nationwide, public utility commissions are struggling to develop novel approaches to promote energy conservation. Commissions are striving to guarantee that this decade is one of energy conservation and not lost opportunities. The commission, consumer advocate, utility, and consumer must in one way or another meet at the intersection of energy conservation. In the District of Columbia, there is a move to have these groups work cooperatively and collaboratively. These strategies have not always been successful; however, recently, given the additional experience and knowledge gained from least-cost planning, these groups have begun to understand the benefits of working together toward a common goal. If all join the cause, this decade will become the first of many decades of meaningful energy conservation.
