The program design helps customers manage their usage in ways that not only save energy, but that better align energy demand to clean energy output and grid conditions.Participation will be streamlined for customers and trade allies.
“We are excited to work with the TEP team to provide energy efficiency solutions for their customers and the trade allies that support them,” said Dean Laube, Franklin Energy Regional Vice President. “We will draw on our thirty years of experience implementing similar programs for utilities nationwide to deliver these programs, utilizing our proven technology suite that enables data-driven customer experience, trade ally engagement, program management with contractor and customer portals, in-field data collection, and digital dashboards that efficiently inform program progress.”
Kathleen Patton, Director of Environmental & Social Programs and Business Development for TEP and UniSource, noted that delivering high-value savings for participants also helps defer the need for future infrastructure investments more broadly. “We are excited to work with a partner who matches our commitment to engaging customers in helping us meet the long-term energy needs of our community while reducing carbon emissions.”
