Albany, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
SmartWatt Energy announced today that they have been awarded a new small business direct install program with a major Northeast utility. The program will benefit approximately 130,000 small business customers, and will include money-saving incentives to install proven energy efficient equipment. SmartWatt has provided turnkey energy efficiency services to commercial, industrial and institutional customers across the country since 2002, and has worked in similar utility programs since 2009.
“This new program will help small business customers improve their facility’s energy efficiency and save money in the process,” said Matt Cinquanti, Vice President of Utility Programs at SmartWatt Energy. “This will benefit the entire community because it allows customers to make significant energy efficiency improvements with little capital investment and interest-free financing. By helping local businesses through this program, our utility partner is helping to transform the communities they serve.”
Launched this month, the program offers businesses, with demand less than 100 kW, a free, comprehensive on-site energy evaluation, a complimentary proposal detailing how customers can reduce energy costs, direct installation of recommended energy improvements, interest-free financing, and post-installation warranty service. Potential upgrades include fluorescent and LED lighting, lighting control systems, refrigeration and electric hot water measures, with incentives of up to 50-60 percent or more of the cost of the upgrades. SmartWatt Energy’s local program team will guide participating customers in executing their comprehensive energy efficiency improvement plans.
