Ecology Action to Administer SMUD Energy Solutions Program

Program Focus Includes HVAC, Refrigeration, and Controls

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Ecology Action, a provider of marketing and engagement programs for the implementation of energy efficiency and sustainability programs, announced that it has been chosen by Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) to administer its Complete Energy Solutions (CES) program. The SMUD program, which will offer incentives and rebates to its business customers, provides a commercial “one-stop-shop” demand side management program to deliver comprehensive energy efficiency for small and mid-sized business customers with up to 499 kW in demand.

The energy efficiency solutions offered by the CES program will focus on the areas of low cost/no cost conservation, demand/time-of-use management, lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, controls (automated demand response-capable controls where applicable), and commercially available emerging technologies. The program provides free energy use assessments to businesses in order to determine ways they can reduce their energy consumption and save money.

“Complete Energy Solutions is designed to take into account the building as a system and uses an innovative whole-building approach that makes a building perform better by cutting energy use,” said Anson Battershell, CES program manager for SMUD. “Energy-efficiency improvements increase comfort and value, provide better indoor air quality, lower energy bills, and deliver community benefits by enabling SMUD to reach long-term energy efficiency goals and reduce peak demand.”

“Ecology Action is thrilled to be selected by SMUD to deliver the CES program,” said Jim Murphy, executive director/CEO of Ecology Action. "Ecology Action is uniquely capable of engaging a wide variety of customers through innovative approaches in order to reduce their energy consumption and save them money."

For more information about the CES program’s free energy use assessments, call toll-free 855-822-2936 or email CES@ecoact.org.
