NSTAR Expands Energy Efficiency Offerings In Step With Massachusetts Leadership

NSTAR is helping Massachusetts get greener every day thanks to the energy innovations championed by Governor Deval Patrick. Changes brought about through the governor’s leadership have allowed investor-owned utilities across the commonwealth to provide more programs and services to customers than ever before. Since 2008, expanded energy efficiency programs alone have helped NSTAR customers save over a billion dollars in energy costs.

“As an energy delivery company in Massachusetts, NSTAR plays an important role in promoting a cleaner environment,” said Penni Conner, Chief Customer Officer for Northeast Utilities, NSTAR’s parent company. “The leadership provided by Governor Patrick and the state legislature has helped to shape this role, beginning with the enactment of the Green Communities Act.”

The Green Communities Act and the green legislation that followed have brought about landmark changes, enabling NSTAR to offer an expanded array of programs and services. From enhanced energy efficiency programs to increased support for renewable energy projects and electric vehicles, these changes have encourages utilities and their customers to explore new ways to save energy and money by becoming greener and more efficient.

For 2010 and 2011 combined, programs offered by NSTAR Electric under the GCA are helping customers save over 8.5 billion kilowatt-hours over the life of the energy efficiency measures installed. This equates to approximately $1.2 billion in energy and other related benefits to consumers over the life of these measures. During the same time, efficiency programs offered by NSTAR Gas are helping customers save almost 100 million therms of gas over the life of the measures installed. This equates to approximately $109 million in energy and non-energy benefits to consumers over the life of these measures.

Understanding how important a safe and reliable electric and natural gas delivery system is to local communities, NSTAR also continues to invest in the infrastructure that provides service to its customers. The company constantly monitors the performance of its systems for safety and reliability and remains committed to its mission of providing great service to customers and their communities.
