OPALCO Conservation Savings Add Up!

For fiscal year 2010, OPALCO reported 1,181,291 kWh of implemented energy savings to BPA. This includes residential and commercial savings and equates to about $82,690 given an average rate of $.07/kWh (including residential and commercial rates). The average usage for OPALCO residential members is about 1000kWh/month so we could look at the above savings as taking approximately 100 homes off the grid last year. Good job co-op members!
