Franklin Energy, a leading provider of energy efficiency and grid optimization solutions, announced today the integration of Resource Action Programs into Franklin Energy.

Resource Action Programs (RAP) develops and implements energy efficiency and water conservation education programs for utilities, government agencies and community-based organizations. With clients throughout North America, RAP’s Measure-Based Education programs shape consumer behavior and provide savings opportunities for millions of households across the country. Franklin Energy acquired RAP in 2014, and the two companies have been operating independently until now.

“As one company, we’re better able to serve our clients,” said Paul Schueller, CEO of Franklin Energy. “Integrating the companies will enhance our combined focus on innovation, customer engagement and customer satisfaction. This integration will also expand our gamification and rewards possibilities, as we integrate Franklin Energy’s NGAGE customer engagement platform with RAP’s education programs.”

Franklin Energy has been in business for nearly three decades, designing and implementing energy efficiency programs for utility, state and municipality clients nationwide. The firm’s expertise pinpoints goal-focused solutions for residential, multifamily, small business and commercial/industrial markets. The integration will serve to strengthen the delivery of customer-centric programs provided by both companies.

“Combined, we are better able to integrate our industry-leading education programs with the innovative grid optimization and customer engagement solutions of Franklin Energy,” said Larry Weight, Resource Action Programs President. “The result is portfolio-level solutions that scale to fit the needs of our clients and their customers.”
