The SCC’s Final Order for Dominion’s DSM Phase XI Filings adopted four recommendations (numbers 12, 24, 25 & 26) from the Hearing Examiner’s Report referring specific issues to the Dominion Energy Efficiency Stakeholder Group for consideration. The four recommendations also require Dominion to submit reports after the Stakeholder group considers the issues.
From the Final Order, it is not clear what the Stakeholder Group must do to “consider” the issue or what must be included in Dominion’s report. The Hearing Examiner’s Report gives more context leading up to each of these four recommendations, providing some guidance on how the Stakeholder Group should proceed and what the reports should contain.
At the October 23, 2023 Dominion Stakeholder meeting, the stakeholders agreed that providing written responses to questions specific to each recommendation would advance everyone's understanding of the issues. The information collected on each of the issues will be used to produce progress reports on the four recommendations while the stakeholder group takes time to thoroughly review the recommendations and provide more detailed follow up to the Commission in 2024.
