Large C&I programs have been at the heart of our business since Franklin Energy was founded. In the years since then, we’ve helped clients in every corner of the sector solve energy-related challenges.
This experience has helped shape us into the partner we are today—one with a deep and broad understanding of and insights into the industry. But our success is based as much on innovation as it is experience.
Next-generation large C&I program design requires us to unite the traditional siloes of energy efficiency, demand response and other distributed energy resources, water and beneficial electrification. By looking at all these branches of conservation as a synergistic whole, we’re able to create flexible, fully integrated grid optimization programs to meet even the most challenging demand side management goals.
One of the benefits of integrated programs is that they reward cross-program participation. That may entail capacity-based demand response incentives for customers who have already completed energy efficiency upgrades. Or it could be a tiered incentives approach to account for the longer time frames needed for combined energy efficiency, solar and battery storage projects.
Whatever the scenario, we recommend a mix of measures that maximize benefits for both the customer and the utility. With custom solutions, we solve your problems by making it easier for your most energy-intensive customers to participate.
