VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Smartcool Systems Inc. has achieved Market Partner status in the Con Edison Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Energy Efficiency Program. Con Edison provides electricity and gas to customers in New York City and Westchester County. The C&I program provides cash incentives and rebates to area businesses for the installation of approved energy efficiency measures in their facilities, including HVAC systems and refrigeration systems.

Smartcool Systems provides energy efficiency solutions for businesses. According to the company, its ESM™ and ECO3™ retrofit technologies reduce the energy consumption of compressors in air conditioning, refrigeration, and heat pump systems, with no risk to existing equipment performance.

George Burnes, president and CEO of Smartcool, said, “Our energy efficiency products already offer a long list of financial and environmental benefits to our customers, and being listed as a Market Partner with Con Edison provides an additional incentive to choose Smartcool. This is also a crucial first step in getting our products pre-approved for rebate, and we are looking forward to working towards this with Con Edison.”

Inclusion in utility rebate programs is an effective way of increasing the visibility of energy efficiency products such as Smartcool’s to end users. These programs provide financial incentives that help offset the cost of energy efficiency upgrades.
