Puget Sound Energy picked Willdan Group and Franklin Energy to implement energy efficiency program, which serves PSE’s lodging customers.

Willdan will implement PGE's inaugural Lodging Direct Install throughout the utility’s 6,000–square mile service area.

This is the first time the two-year program has been offered by PSE. The total value of the two-year contract is $2.8 million.

The LDI program is projected to deliver 6.18 million kilowatt-hours in electric energy savings and 266,000 therms of natural gas energy savings to PSE lodging customers. The program approach features a broad array of personalized service offerings including direct installation of no-cost and low-cost lighting, HVAC and refrigeration measures for small or limited-service hotels.

For larger and full-service hotels, the program offers compensation towards comprehensive energy efficiency audits when circumstances warrant detailed measure identification and energy savings analysis. Willdan’s commitment to actively engage trade allies to augment the installation services component of the LDI program can enable the program to effectively support PSE’s lodging customers across a region that is both broad and diverse.

Franklin Energy will add Puget Sound Energy’s existing residential energy assessment program to its 2016/2017 residential portfolio. The energy efficiency implementer will provide customer engagement and energy education through the delivery of residential energy assessments to qualifying Puget Sound Energy electric and natural gas customers.

“We’re aligned and ready to help Puget Sound Energy reach its program goals,” said Dan Tarrence, Franklin Energy Services Executive Vice President. “We are excited to open a local Seattle office – our first in the Northwest U.S., to support program operations. And while we head into this new territory, we are confident in our dedicated resources and long-standing experience in the residential market.”
