The Economic Impacts of Energy Efficiency Investments in the Midwest

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.
