Upon completion of each of the first 2 years of a three-year term, each Program Administrator shall submit an energy efficiency annual report that details its performance during the applicable year. The final year of a three-year term is included in the term report filings and therefore not separately filed as an annual report.
The Department may investigate a Program Administrator’s performance at any time during a three-year term on its own, or if the Energy Efficiency Advisory Council passes a resolution requesting that the Department do so.
The 2017 annual reports were filed June 8, 2018 and are listed under a single docket number.1
