Encentivizer™ Delivering New Energy Efficiency Opportunities For
COSE Northeast Ohio’s Small Business Community
Pittsburgh, PA, December 1, 2015 -
The Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE)located in Northeast Ohio has partnered with Encentiv Energy to deliver a new energy efficiency incentive program for Ohio’s small business community. Through COSE, Ohio businesses can qualify for regional incentives that can help reduce the overall cost of an energy efficiency project. These incentives are available by aggregating multiple projects and leveraging the energy efficiency forward capacity market through the regional grid operator, PJM. This incentive program is a good project funding source that is often overlooked. COSE is the only administrator in Northeast Ohio to use the Encentivizer™ platform to aggregate eligible energy efficiency projects into this program.
“The PJM Energy Efficiency Capacity Program is a great source of funds for any size project,” said Steve Moritz, President & CEO of Encentiv Energy. “Through COSE, customers in Ohio can access these funds for both completed as well as new projects. Eligible projects could earn up to four years of payments, providing significant value to COSE’s members.”
Senior Director of Energy Services, Nicole Stika stated “Since January 2015 when FirstEnergy suspended their local electric utility rebate program in Northern Ohio, COSE has been searching for a solution that rewards the business community when they complete energy efficiency projects like lighting upgrades, new construction, HVAC, and more. Encentiv Energy’s Encentivizer™ platform allows COSE to estimate and offer program participation access to the business community with real incentive dollar returns.” There are no out of pocket costs to participate in the incentive program through COSE.
