Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 02, 2012
With the New York State Efficiency Portfolio Standard mandating a 15% energy reduction by 2015, utilities are turning to Small Business Direct Install Programs as an effective way to achieve those goals. In just 18 months, EnerPath, has achieved significant market saturation for the NYSEG/RG&E Small Business Energy Efficiency Program, enrolling over 9000 customers in the program. The small businesses that have participated in the NYSEG/RG&E program are saving a collective 72 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and $7.9 million on their electricity bills annually.
Stephen Guthrie, Founder and CEO of EnerPath says these SBDI programs are a win-win for the utility and the end-user. “SBDI programs help the utility reach their energy reduction goals, but also help small-business owners reduce their operating costs. In this economy that’s more important than ever before.”
Small businesses, such as MyTee Undercare in Rochester, NY, are benefiting from the NYSEG/RG&E program. The manager of the auto repair shop, Dennis Williams, heard about the program from another customer. “Once we saw the lights installed in another business and heard about the program, it was a no-brainer for us to enroll.” The shop will save $700 annually on electricity bills, but Williams is so thrilled with the brighter, cleaner lighting that he says the savings are secondary.
To achieve the utilities’ goals, EnerPath , with a home office in Redlands, California, established a Rochester, NY office in 2010, creating over 50 green jobs and providing work to another 75 contractors across the state, with possibilities for expansion. “EnerPath will continue to lead the energy efficiency movement in New York ,”Guthrie explains. “With our highly trained team, our cutting edge proprietary software and a 98% customer satisfaction rating, we are prepared to help New York utilities meet their energy efficiency goals.”
