“Ambitious state goals and well-designed financial incentives have helped Massachusetts’ two major electric utilities emerge as national leaders in energy efficiency programs.

National Grid and Eversource’s Massachusetts electric operations tied for first place on a scorecard released last month by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Each utility earned 92% of the total possible points; the next highest scorer among the 52 utilities assessed was San Diego Gas and Electric, which earned 75%. 

‘Massachusetts is definitely a state that others can look to for their experience and their best practices,’ said Samantha Caputo, senior policy and research associate at Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships, a nonprofit that promotes energy efficiency.

The Massachusetts utilities’ high scores were driven by their program performance, which far outstripped that of other companies. National Grid saved an amount of electricity equal to 3.73% of sales and Eversource achieved 3.15% savings, the only two companies to exceed 3%. Only five utilities saved more than 2%.

Together, the two utilities saved 1.5 million megawatt-hours, an amount equal to the power used by more than 200,000 average Massachusetts homes in a year.”
