Utility companies are required by law to designate a portion of their budget for conservation improvement programs (CIP). Each utility develops its own conservation plan, offering a variety of programs to assist residential and business customers to become more energy efficient. The Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources oversees CIP to ensure that ratepayer dollars are used effectively and energy savings are reported as accurately as possible.
