Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance benefits
The long run goal of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance is to encourage transformation in the marketplace, leading to the adoption and use of energy efficient equipment and practices. While immediate energy savings are not its main goal, its projects do result in savings in the short run. The Alliance estimated these savings for 2000 and 2001 and allocated shares to the largest utilities, based primarily on their retail loads. Estimates for this utility:

 FY 2000:  3,701,363 kwh   FY 2001:  11,628,199 kwh   FY 2002:  5,609,762 kwh
