Staff Highlighted Areas

    • Only reason measure was given short sunset date was due to upcoming Energy Star update.

    • Washington “WashWise” efficiency tiers removed due to WashWise program ending in December 2012.

    • Current efficiency tiers considered: any Energy Star, CEE Tier 3 or better, Energy Star Top 10% or better

    • Seeking RTF guidance on whether these tiers address region’s programmatic needs.

Staff proposal

Staff Proposal

  • Approve the updates to the residential clothes washer UES measure;

  • Set the measure status to “Active”;

  • Change the sunset date to February 31, 2015; and

  • Leave current efficiency tiers unchanged unless members of the RTF express interest in additional tiers.


Remaining issues for rtf discussion

Remaining Issues for RTF Discussion

  • UES efficiency tier definitions

    • Any need from utilities for edits or additions to the current efficiency tiers?

    • Example change:

      • Add a “CEE Tier 2 or better” tier

    • A note on adding tiers:

      • Pros – allows programs to target varying levels of savings

      • Cons – additional administrative burden to utilities and RTF staff, particularly if tiers are not used

  • approve the updates to the residential clothes washer UES measure;

  • set the measure status to ‘Active’;

  • change the sunset date to February 31, 2015; and

  • [add / edit / no changes to] the efficiency tier(s) ____________ in the measure workbook.”
