This report describes the net economic impacts of energy efficiency programs funded by utilities in the Midwest region. The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) commissioned Cadmus to model the first-year and forecasted impacts of 2014 utility program spending and savings across 13 Midwest states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Specifically, Cadmus estimated the net impacts of utility program activities on four economic sub-regions: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and the Rest of the Midwest.
Cadmus also analyzed the economic impacts from just in-state efficiency program activities in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. Detailed findings from each of these state-specific analyses are provided in separate sections of this report.
