Residential Lighting Market Lift Pilot Study


July 2014 - The Forum and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) recruited organizations in Massachusetts, Oregon, and Vermont to sponsor a pilot consisting of three coordinated demonstration programs in residential lighting using Market Lift, an innovative upstream program design.

The pilot had two primary goals: (1) provide proof of concept for the program design and (2) inform an analysis of changes in the residential lighting market since the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) standards went into effect and also an assessment of whether the programs affected the lighting markets in their respective service territories based on a collection of full-category sales data for medium screw-based lamps.
