Part of the NSGI includes providing customers with tools to monitor and reduce their energy usage if they choose. Customers will have the option to remain with a flat rate billing structure or one based on time-of-use pricing.
From the utility side, the initiative will provide increased reliability and efficiencies, decrease line loss and reduce wasted energy. The NSGI also will prepare the utility’s infrastructure for future energy efficiency programs, including support for electric vehicles and integration of renewable energy sources.
