Empowering District consumers with information about how to use energy efficiently is one of OPC’s most important priorities. OPC has long been committed to encouraging consumers to be energy smart and take control of their energy consumption so that they can save money. OPC addresses the energy-efficiency needs of District residents through its hands-on, energy-efficiency workshops—which educate DC ratepayers about simple and practical energy-efficiency measures they can immediately apply to their homes for energy savings.
OPC’s ongoing partnerships and collaborations with other District agencies such as the District Department of Energy and Environment, DC Sustainable Energy Utility, DC PACE and private entities ensure that DC ratepayers have comprehensive access to energy-efficiencyand renewable-energy resources that will empower them to make informed energy-saving choices. Annually, OPC conducts well over 100 energy-efficiency workshops, including presentations at churches, civic organizations, public schools and libraries. Additionally, OPC’s Energy Efficiency Outreach team has established new partnerships and policy dialogues with the following groups: ThinkBox; the National Energy Utility and Affordability Coalition (NEAUC); 15th Street Presbyterian Church and Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light and Energy First.
