Did you know utility companies will pay your organization to use less energy?

Because of soaring energy prices, there are a large number of utility companies across North America that will actually provide rebates to organizations who implement tools to help reduce energy consumption. In fact, Verdiem’s SURVEYOR software is recognized by many utility companies across the country, and the use of this software frequently enables organizations to receive rebates from utility companies in their area.

A few examples of utility companies that rebate include:

· Avista
· BCHydro
· Bonneville Power Administration
· Hawaii Electric Company
· Idaho Power
· Manitoba Hydro/Saskatchewan Power
· Nevada Power/Sierra Pacific Power
· New York Power Authority
· New York State Energy Research &
· Development Authority (NYSERDA)
· Northeast Utilities
· Oregon Energy Trust
· PacifiCorp (primarily Utah)
· PG&E
· Puget Sound Energy
· Sacramento Municipal Utility District
· San Diego Gas & Electric
· San Francisco Energy Watch
· Seattle City Light
· Silicon Valley Power
· Snohomish PUD
· Southern California Edison
· The United Illuminating Company
· Wisconsin Focus on Energy
· Xcel Energy (Minnesota and Colorado)

As a point of reference, these rebates are similar to the consumer rebates offered by organizations like Energy Star. Learn more here.
