Total Resource Cost Test

Act 129 of 2008 directs the Commission to use a Total Resource Cost (TRC) test to analyze the costs and benefits of the energy efficiency and conservation plans that certain electric distribution companies are required to file. Act 129 defines the TRC test as “a standard test that is met if, over the effective life of each plan not to exceed 15 years, the net present value of the avoided monetary cost of supplying electricity is greater than the net present value of the monetary cost of energy efficiency conservation measures.” 66 Pa. C.S. § 2806.1(m).
