Dear WHPA members,

All WHPA members are invited to participate in a unique opportunity to learn about DEER, the tool used by the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) to calculate how the IOUs’ HVAC programs determine and claim energy savings.

As such, DEER impacts much of the work of WHPA Committees and Working Groups.

This “DEER 101” training meeting is an opportunity for utility staff to educate the WHPA about DEER.  At the end of the class, information will be provided to help WHPA members provide feedback and information on the DEER model to the CPUC Energy Division staff.

Date:  Thursday, September 12, 2013
Time:  9:00 am – 11:00 am, PDT
