In 2014, Idaho Power and Cascade collaborated on a cohort-based SEM offering for the utility’s wastewater treatment customers. Wastewater Energy Efficiency Cohort, or WWEEC, was an intensive program involving 11 of the 12 largest municipal wastewater accounts in Idaho Power’s service area. The cohort transformed the opinions of the participating cities on the value their utility can provide.
