NSPM References

To track interest, understanding and use of the NSPM, the map below shows references made in jurisdictions, including those made in regulatory dockets, federal/US DOE inquiries, legislative bills, reports and studies, etc. We show where the NSPM is recommended or used as a BCA framework for improving cost-effectiveness practices for a single DER or multiple DERs, and in various regulatory contexts. In addition to US jurisdictions, the NSPM has been referenced in the Canadian provinces Ontario, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and British Columbia.

See this summary of NSPM application for jurisdictions that have applied the NSPM. For a summary of references in specific jurisdictions and more generally, see this Summary of NSPM References.

Note that states where the NSPM has been referenced but not yet applied does not indicate that the commission rejected the NSPM. Rather, the NSPM is on record in a docket as a recommended BCA framework for PSC consideration.

NESP will provide updates as they evolve. If you are aware of references to the NSPM that are not listed in the downloadable file, please contact NSPM@nationalenergyscreeningproject.org.

From 2017 to summer 2020, references were primarily to the NSPM for EE. References thereafter also reflect the NSPM for DERs.
