Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the energy savings to consumers for organizations that sell energy-efficient products. For example, an organization that sells compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) that replace incandescent lightbulbs might use this metric to report on the total energy savings to its clients based on the products provided. This metric captures the lifetime energy savings of products sold.
  • When multiplying the energy savings from each product sold by Units/Volume Sold: Total (PI1263), organizations should use absolute number of units rather than volume. For example, if the energy savings of each product (e.g., CFL lightbulb) is multiplied by each unit of CFL lightbulb product sold, the total energy savings of products sold can be calculated.
