TXU Energy has invested $9.4 million in energy efficiency projects for business customers which, combined with additional investments by those customers, has helped them cut their electricity consumption by 682 million kWh since 2009.
Based on a conservative price estimate, this has freed $51 million for those businesses to invest in their products, services, employees and communities.
TXU Energy launched its Brighten GreenBack program in 2009, offering rebates to large, commercial and industrial customers for energy efficiency projects. The company also provides expert guidance to select and complete the most valuable initiatives.
Schools, churches, government entities and well-known commercial businesses, including American Airlines and Marriott, have completed a total of 265 projects.
In addition to lighting, many customers have focused on heating, ventilation and cooling system upgrades, as well as equipment and lighting controls.
