Los Angeles, CA, November 03, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Through a competitive bid process, Sterling Analytics was selected by Southern California Edison (SCE) to offer an incentive program for LED retrofits and HVAC upgrades. Unlike standard rebate programs, the energy efficiency program offers greater incentives and can cover a substantial portion of the total project cost.
Sterling Analytics entered into Energy Efficiency Agreements with SCE, which are currently pending California Public Utilities Commission approval. The energy efficiency upgrades offered through the Sterling Analytics program are part of the Local Capacity Requirements (LCR) initiative for resources that will help enhance the safety and reliability of the power grid in specific geographic locations, while simultaneously promoting a clean energy future for SCE customers.
"According to the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 25% of building energy use is consumed for electric lighting. So, when we contemplated the most significant opportunity to reduce peak load for SCE, the LED revolution in lighting, with its ability to save 50% or more in lighting loads, was natural for us to support. Adding in the summer heat load reduction component, because of the reduced heat output from LEDs, means our program accelerates the adoption of new LED lighting and increases overall energy savings for every building accepted into our program,” explains Alden Hathaway, Sterling Analytics Senior Vice President.
Non-residential electricity customers within certain SCE metered service areas may be eligible for incentives under the program and can contact Sterling Analytics for more information. After an initial lighting audit, potential program participants will receive a proposal outlining suggested energy efficiency upgrades. The program targets lighting savings on weekdays between 8 AM to 9 PM using technologies such as screw-in LED lamps, day light harvesting and occupancy controls, T8 LED tubes, LED fixture retrofits, and new LED fixtures.
The SCE customer program allows Sterling Analytics to lower participant’s energy efficiency project costs thereby increasing participant’s payback and encouraging companies to seek energy saving solutions. As noted by Mr. Hathaway of Sterling Analytics, “Not only does SCE benefit from the targeted load reductions, but their customers will also benefit with energy savings and substantial financial paybacks on the upgrades. After positive discussions with facility owners in Orange County, we foresee the program will gain fast traction and will incentivize energy efficiency installations throughout the duration of the program.”
