Under the program, utility customers are charged a fee on their monthly bills. The money is used for efficient appliances, home energy checkups, rebates and bill credits for reducing electricity use.
Although the EmPower program expired in 2015, the state's Public Service Commission asked utilities to invest more in energy efficiency when a report found that for every $1 spent in the program, the state has saved $1.81 through reduced energy prices.

The CMU Carbon Index, which found that U.S. power producers had cut CO2 emissions intensity by 24pct since 2005, offers a comprehensive picture of the environmental impact of electricity production in the U.S and will measure the environmental impact of the U.S. power grid during the previous 12 months and over an extended period to 1990.
The CMU index also provides a summary of the amount of electric power was generated by coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable energy sources.
According to the Carbon Index: more than half of the reduction in CO2 emissions intensity since 2005 is due to a shift from coal to natural gas; emissions intensity of the natural gas fleet has reduced by 17 pct since 2001, as more efficient turbine technologies and operating schedules have been introduced; since 2005 renewable electricity has grown from 9 pct of U.S. generation to 15 percent--an increase of nearly 75 percent.
