DSE II Rider set to launch in Ohio August 9, 2010

Posted by markrabkin in Energy Efficiency.

The Demand Side Management & Energy Efficiency Rider (DSE II) is a component of Ohio Senate Bill 221 which was enacted in 2008.  Although the amount of the rider has yet to be determined by the various Ohio utilities and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, early estimates show the surcharge to range between $0.0776 – $0.1392 per kwh.  The law identifies two classes of users subject to the rider; mercantile customers are those using in excess of 700,000 kwh a year and non-mercantile customers are those using less than 700,000 kwh.

Mercantile customers are able to implement energy efficiency programs to eliminate this surcharge, but need to file the appropriate documentation through an authorized administrator such as COSE.  Non-mercantile customers can apply for rebates after undergoing some form of demand side management upgrade in an effort to reduce their consumption.

The target for the DSE II is to gradually reduce consumption and achieve a cumulative drop in usage of 22.2% by 2025.
