ACEEE’s The Best Value for America’s Energy Dollar: National Review of the Cost of Utility Energy Efficiency Programs examined utility energy efficiency programs run during 2009-2012 from 20 states across the country. The study found that on average it cost 2.8 cents for energy efficiency programs to save a kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity. As shown in the graph below, that’s around one-third to one-half of the cost of supplying electricity. Natural gas programs averaged about 35 cents per therm saved as compared to a 2013 average national commodity price of 49 cents per therm supplied. The authors conclude that a dollar invested in energy efficiency yi...
