Supporting Regional Utilities
The Energy Resources Center (ERC) functions as the implementer for the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offerings within the Energy Efficiency portfolios of our two major regional utilities. In effort to promote CHP for eligible utility customers and to meet the utility program goals, ERC manages a closed network of service providers capable of performing CHP feasibility studies for facilities interested in installing and operating a CHP system. Some of these service providers are also able to support installation and operations design for customers who move ahead to procure a CHP system.
How We Support These Initiatives
The ERC also functions as outreach for the CHP market segment and can assist service providers in lead development and customer education. ERC’s management of CHP service providers ensures standardization of study deliverables and consistent messaging governing the promotion of utility energy efficiency program offerings. Additionally, the ERC collaborates with utility CHP program managers to design and maintain an efficient implementation program that serves to compliment the rest of utility energy efficiency program offerings.
