Case Studies

States and jurisdictions are applying the NSPM framework and process to review their current cost-effectiveness testing practice. The case studies below provide useful examples of how the NSPM framework and principles can be applied to cost-effectiveness testing. Note: these cases apply to EE resources where states used the 2017 NSPM for EE. Case studies will be updated as experience is gained with jurisdictions applying the 2020 NSPM for DERs.
