Third Party Definitions and Outsourcing
The definition of a third party (3P) program has been set. It is defined as a program that is “proposed, designed, implemented, and delivered by non-utility personnel under contract to a utility program administrator”. Each utility PA will be required to outsource at least 20 percent of its program activity to third parties.
Additionally, the utility PAs will be required to propose, in their business plan filings, a plan to transition to at least 60 percent of their portfolios to be outsourced to third parties by the end of 2020.
