MVU Energy Efficiency Programs

Light from candle to LED the most efficient


Moreno Valley Utility (MVU) has developed an energy efficiency program portfolio that supports conservation of energy and deployment of technologies and strategies that reduce energy demand and generation resource requirements. These programs are designed to achieve energy savings, reduce customer bills, support economic development, reduce generation resource requirements and lessen environmental impacts.

The energy efficiency programs are intended to capture real energy savings in the short term, but also to prime the residential and commercial markets for increased use of energy efficiency measures over time. As such, the portfolio design has clear, specific, measurable goals that reflect both short-term and long-term priorities.

The Residential Energy Efficiency Program and the Commercial Energy Efficiency Program are made up of measures that are prescriptive with specific fixed rebate amounts for customers by rate class who meet the program requirements for the equipment purchased and installed. Prescriptive programs are typically mass market programs that provide rebates at retail for efficient lighting or appliance purchases, or small commercial programs that reduce program overhead by offering fixed rebates for the installation of efficient lighting or controls.

The Custom Energy Efficiency Program allows a broader selection of measures that require calculation of the expected savings that the customer will achieve and offers an incentive for making improvements specific to the economics of the project that the customer installs. Typically, custom programs are used for larger commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, but they are sometimes also used for Comprehensive Portfolio residential retrofit programs.

Rebates are capped at 50% of the cost of the measure with the exception of the Custom Program which is capped at 25% of the installed measure. The maximum allowable rebate total for any fiscal year is $5,000 for residential customers and $25,000 for business customers.
