Vancouver, BC. August 24, 2011, Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSX-V: SSC) has achieved Market Partner status in the Con Edison Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Energy Efficiency Program. Con Edison provides electricity and gas to customers in New York City and Westchester County. The C&I program provides cash incentives and rebates to area businesses for the installation of approved energy efficiency measures in their facilities, including lighting, LED’s, HVAC systems, VFDs, refrigeration, steam and heat pumps to name a few.
George Burnes, President & CEO, talks about the impact this program approval has for Smartcool. “Our energy efficiency products already offer a long list of financial and environmental benefits to our customers, and being listed as a Market Partner with Con Edison provides an additional incentive to choose Smartcool. This is also a crucial first step in getting our products pre-approved for rebate, and we are looking forward to working towards this with Con Edison.”
Inclusion in utility rebate programs is an extremely effective way of increasing the visibility of energy efficiency products such as Smartcool’s to end customers. These programs provide financial incentives that help offset the cost of efficient equipment upgrades. Implementing energy efficient upgrades in a facility can help improve a company’s bottom line by reducing energy usage and increasing a building’s overall performance.
