At the September 18 Board Meeting, representatives from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) recognized Hartselle Utilities for placing 10th in the TVA service area – out of 154 local power companies – for overall program savings in the EnergyRight Solutions program, compared to the utility’s electric sales.
Hartselle Utilities was recognized for helping TVA exceed energy efficiency and demand response goals for the ninth straight year through its participation in the EnergyRight Solutions program.
“Hartselle Utilities provides the staffing, promotion and resources to ensure that customers are aware of and can participate in energy effi ciency measures to save on electric bills,” said Cindy Herron, vice president of EnergyRight Solutions for TVA.
“Really, it is our customers who took advantage of the program and won the award,” says Hartselle Utilities General Manager Bob Sittason. “We promoted the EnergyRight program, but we can’t make people sign up or follow through.”
TVA’s EnergyRight Solutions includes eScore, which helps homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their homes by choosing to install one or more energy efficiency upgrades based on expert recommendations. Participants in the program are eligible for rebates.
Forty Hartselle Utilities customers participated in eScore last year, and saved over 27,400 kWh. Twenty-five customers performed household self-audits, for 18,200 kWh in savings. Hartselle residents also participated in the EnergyRight Solutions heat pump and Energy Start Manufactured Homes programs.
Three business and industrial customers participated in the EnergyRight Solutions for Business and Industry, with 754,773 kWh in savings.
