PUE-20074)0089 On September 18, 2007, Virginia Electric and Power Company (=DVP" or "Company) filed an application for State Corporation Commission ('Commission") approval to implement nine new pilots (=Pilots") in its Virginia service territory. The Pilots include five conservation and energy efficiency pilots: (i) Standard Residential In- Home Energy Audits, (ii) ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes Energy Audits, (iii) Energy Efficiency Welcome Kits, (iv) PowerCost Monitor pilot, and [v) Small Commercial On-Site Energy Audits; and four demand resoonse/Ioad management pilots: (i} Direct Load Conltol - Outdoor Air-Conditioning Control Device, (ii) Programmable Ther- mostats - Indoor Air-Conditioning Control Device, (iii) Programmable Thermostats with Advanced metering infra- structure ('AMI") and Cdtical Peak Pricing ("CPP'), and (iv) Distributed Generation/Loed Curtailment Pilot. Seven of the pilots are proposed to run through December 2008, The Programmable Thermostats with AMI and CPP Pilot will run through May 200g, and the Distributed Generation/Load Curtailment Pilots are proposed to run through December 31,2014. Each of the pilots are intended by DVP to collect and share with the Commission data about conservation, en- ergy effidency, demand response, andload management options, including customer enthusiasm for and accept- ance of such options. The pilots are intended to encourage customer interest in energy-saving measures and to help customers better understand their own energy consumption patterns. DVP also intends these pilots to test the effectiveness of and elficiencies to be gained by using the management capabilities of DVP-selected contrac- tors. The Company represents that some of the pilots in the Proposal may fall within the scope of the Commission's Promotional Allowance Rules (20 VAC 5-303-10 through -60) and the Commission's Rules Governing Cost/Bene- fit Measures Required for Demand-Side Management Programs (20 VAC 5-304-10 through -40), To the extent that these rules require prior Commission approval or waiver for aspects of any of the pilots, including advertising associated with the pilots, DVP requests such approval be granted herein. The application notes that on August 30, 2007, the Company also notified the Commission's Division of Eco- nomics and Finance ofits participation in a compact fluorescent lights ("CFL") pnce reduction program, which is part of a combined effort among public utilities and governmental agencies, such as the Commonwealth's Depart- ment of Mines, Minerals, and Energy, to inform the public of the importance of energy efficiency and conservation efforts. Through this program, DVP works with manufacturers and retail outlets to provide customers with CFL at discounted rates. During 2007, the Company is buying down the cost of approximately 150,000 CFL packages at a cost to DVP of $1.50 per single bulb or $3.00 par multipack. DVP anticipates continuation of this program through 2008 and 2009. expanding it to include the buy-down of approximately 625,000 CFL annually. In addition to approval of the pilots, the Company also requests all approvals necessary to continue participation in this CFL price reduction program through 2009.
