Bowling Green has renewed its partnership with Efficiency Smart through 2016, extending the initial three-year contract that began in January 2011.
Efficiency Smart provides energy efficiency services for electric customers of Bowling Green Municipal Utilities. Through the end of November 2013, the partnership has resulted in 15,442 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy saved in Bowling Green, more than double the three-year goal.
Under the new agreement, the cost to participate in Efficiency Smart will decrease with no impact on the level of services participants receive. Most of the provisions will remain the same during the next service period, including a 70 percent performance guarantee and independently verified savings claims.
"Efficiency Smart has been very successful in helping all of our customers reduce their long term energy costs," said BG Director of Utilities Brian O'Connell. "Efficiency smart offers valuable technical support to help customers improve energy efficiency, and we are pleased to continue to offer these services to our customers."
Among services are:
• Rebates for energy-efficient products, discounts on energy-efficient lighting and financial rewards for recycling secondary refrigerators and freezers for residential customers.
• Rebates for more than 90 improvements for businesses with annual electric usage of 20,000 to 500,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh),  including lighting and lighting controls, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, refrigeration, electric heating, food service equipment and compressed air and motors.
• Tailored services with dedicated account management, customized financial incentives and technical assistance for organizations that use more than 500,000 kWh of electricity annually.
