We're proud to have succeeded in meeting our energy-efficiency targets, and to have done our part to help National Grid meet their overall Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS).
Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2011
SmartWatt Energy announced today that they have met the mid-year energy efficiency targets set by National Grid, for their Small & Medium Business Direct Install Program in Central and Northern NY, and are on pace to exceed all goals by the end of 2011. SmartWatt Energy is the sole Program Administrator and Implementation Contractor for this program in Central and Northern NY, which has been implemented to help business customers increase energy-efficiency, while helping National Grid assist the State of New York in meeting its overall goal of reducing electricity usage by 15% by 2015.
Small to medium-sized business customers with an average demand use of 100 kilowatts of energy or less per month qualify for the Program, in which National Grid provides rebates of up to 70% of the cost of installation of energy efficient equipment. National Grid also offers on-bill financing for the remaining customer share of the cost, interest-free, for up to 24 months. Convenience stores, restaurants, warehouses, offices, retail stores, car dealerships, schools and light industrial manufacturers are all helped by this Program.
“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with National Grid to make the New York economy more viable and sustainable,” explained Matt Cinquanti, Vice President of Third Party Programs for SmartWatt Energy. “We’re proud to have succeeded in meeting our energy-efficiency targets, and to have done our part to help National Grid meet their overall Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS).”
At the mid-year point, SmartWatt Energy has met its savings goal for National Grid, and is on track to exceed an ambitious 60,000 MWH program savings goal for the Small Business Direct Install Program. SmartWatt Energy is also a Large Commercial & Industrial Trade Ally in National Grid’s Large Business Program. They have offices in Albany, Syracuse, Rochester and Suffern to serve their New York customers.
