Utility companies Pepco and Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) awarded contracts to Energesco Solutions to provide energy efficiency and water conservation improvements to multifamily properties in Pepco’s and SMECO’s service areas throughout the state of Maryland. Both contracts were awarded under the Commercial Multifamily Program, a newly announced energy efficiency rebate program, supporting the EmPOWER Maryland initiative.
The Pepco contract extends to multifamily properties throughout Pepco’s 566 square miles of service area in Maryland. The Commercial Multifamily Program, which launched in June 2015, is offered exclusively to multifamily properties in Maryland seeking to implement energy efficiency and water conservation upgrades. Under this newly announced program, multifamily properties will be eligible to receive enhanced rebates for energy efficiency projects, including apartment-level direct install measures, LED light upgrades and HVAC enhancements.
The SMECO contract extends to all multifamily owners and operators that the customer-owned electric cooperative serves in Prince George’s (southern), Charles, St. Mary’s and the majority of Calvert counties in Maryland. SMECO recently implemented a suite of energy efficiency programs, including building envelope enhancements, to provide its commercial customers with energy and cost savings opportunities.
