Electric utilities; energy efficiency programs; stakeholder process. Requires the stakeholder process to be used by American Electric Power and Dominion Energy Virginia to provide input and feedback on compliance with the annual energy efficiency savings programs and how such savings affect utility integrated resource plans, recommended policy reforms by which the General Assembly or the State Corporation Commission can ensure maximum and cost-effective deployment of energy efficiency technology across the Commonwealth, and best practices for evaluation, measurement, and verification for the purposes of assessing compliance with the annual energy efficiency savings programs. The measure also requires each utility's stakeholder process to include the participation of relevant directors, relevant deputies, and staff members of the Commission who participate in approval and oversight of utility energy efficiency savings programs.
