About NEEA

Mobilizing the market toward energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way to meet our future energy needs. The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is an alliance of more than 140 Northwest utilities and energy efficiency organizations working on behalf of more than 13 million energy consumers.

Through collaboration and pooling of resources, the region’s utilities and stakeholders have harnessed their collective influence to drive market adoption of energy efficiency products, services and practices for the benefit of utilities, consumers and the region.

Since 1996, the region has cost-effectively delivered over 1,400 aMW of energy efficiency through market transformation - enough energy to power more than 985,000 homes each year.
