Willdan Group won a three-year, $75 million base contract to implement Con Edison of New Commercial Direct Install program across the utility’s New York City and Westchester County service area.
This energy efficiency program replaces and expands Con Edison’s Small Business Direct Install program, which Willdan has implemented since 2009, by increasing the size of eligible commercial customers and diversifying the program offerings.
Willdan expects there to be additions to the base contract, which runs through year end 2019. The base contract does not include the Brooklyn Queens Neighborhood Program, expansions described in the proposed joint settlement rate case, or additional program focus areas.
“We thank Con Edison for entrusting Willdan again with one of their most important energy efficiency programs,” said Tom Brisbin, Willdan’s CEO. “Many utilities around the country are facing challenges similar to those we have overcome on the Con Edison program.”
The CDI program, Con Edison’s largest energy efficiency program, helps customers save energy, lower their bills, and protect the environment by providing financial incentives to identify and buy down the cost of energy efficiency measures.
To support this effort, Willdan will provide full-service program implementation including outreach and direct sales to potential commercial customers, on-site energy efficiency assessments, direct implementation of energy savings measures, and subcontractor management.
With this new program, Willdan will bolster Con Edison’s contribution towards achieving New York Gov. Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision goals. The CDI program will reduce the carbon footprint of Con Edison’s customers by offering expanded turnkey solutions for upgrading existing lighting, refrigeration and gas equipment and subsidize the cost of energy efficiency investments to make energy more affordable for New Yorkers.
