Increased investment in demand-side reduction –a homebuilder @ GA PSC 2013-06-18

Paul[?] Matthews said he’s been green since before it was cool, first in an earlier Georgia Power program (EarthCraft), and now in EarthCents. He thinks the program is good, with both environmental and economic benefits, but he asked for it to be extended to become a model for the south, at the Georgia Public Service Commission meeting Tuesday 18 June 2013.

He spoke about his company’s investment in sustainable efficiency and conservation, and asked GA PSC and Georgia Power to also do more.

A much more efficient way and cost-effective of reducing power is by reducing energy used. We’re not only looking at tripling the savings over the next ten years, but we’re also looking at job growth….

…a sustainable and long-term growth approach.

Let’s make the rebates and also the tax credits so they’re a model for Georgia and also for the south.

PS: Dear public speakers, could you please

  1. Always say your name! Doesn’t matter whether the chair or host just introduced you; that may not be on the same video, or maybe the chair forgot.
  2. Say the name of your company or organization. Pretend we never heard it before, because quite possibly we haven’t.
  3. Say clearly what your topic is. Just because you deal with a given program every day doesn’t mean anybody else will know what you’re talking about if you say it real quickly and don’t define it.
Thank you.
