DSM Program Revisions

June 17, 2022

On June 15, 2022, Inter-County Energy Cooperative Corporation filed with the Kentucky Public Service Commission ("PSC"), revisions to two DSM programs that are currently in effect. The proposed effective date for the tariff changes is July 15, 2022. Each of the DSM tariffs is voluntary in nature. Inter-County Energy Cooperative Corporation does not have a DSM Rider in effect, so there will be no change in the rates charged for electric service to any customer class. However, if the proposed tariffs are approved:

1.  The Community Assistance Resources for Energy Savings Program (“CARES”) will no longer be restricted to only Community Action Agencies.  The proposed revision will allow other 501(c)(3) organizations with affordable housing missions to participate in the program.

2.  The Button-Up Weatherization Program revision will add a stand-alone measure for sealing HVAC ducts in homes that heat with electricity.
