The Energy Efficiency Guidebook is a comprehensive resource for community-owned electric and gas utilities. Funded by the Energy Foundation, the guidebook serves as a roadmap for energy efficiency program planning and provides step-by-step recommendations for program design, implementation, tracking and evaluation. It includes basic spreadsheet tools for assessing energy efficiency potential and analyzing program cost-effectiveness. It also includes links to other resources that are available to support the program planning and implementation process.

The guidebook was developed by the Energy Center of Wisconsin to assist utilities in their efforts to accelerate energy efficiency program offerings. The Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) and Glenn Cannon, former general manager of Waverly Light & Power, contributed to the guidebook.
