(MA D.P.U. – “Investigation by the Department of Public Utilities on its own Motion into Updating its Energy Efficiency Guidelines Consistent with An Act Relative to Green Communities.”) b.   Using as an example SaskPower, an integrated electric utility serving the people of Saskatchewan, Canada, this paper explores environmental and market place challenges facing electric utilities, and suggests ways existing energy conservation efforts can be leveraged to address, in part, the challenge of selling efficiency rather than power. by:   Inside the new guidebook for electric utility regulation That is a big part of why the book is resource material for work being done by very regulation also gives the utility incentives .
