TRC Expands Energy Efficiency Programs With Recent Contract Wins
TRC's (NYSE: TRR) Energy Services division, a 2008 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year, is expanding its award winning energy efficiency programs with NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) and the New Jersey Office of Clean Energy with contract awards totaling $2.5 million.
Under the new contracts, TRC will continue its award winning work with NYSERDA's Multifamily Performance Program that offers incentives to construct and retrofit multifamily buildings using energy efficient technologies and practices that reduce energy costs and carbon emissions. TRC will also design and implement new energy efficiency programs for the New Jersey Office of Clean Energy including a Municipal Audit, Pay for Performance and TEACH(TM)--a new 'Teaching Energy Awareness with Children's Help' energy education program.
"These additional contract awards are a testament to our clients' satisfaction with TRC's design, implementation and management of these programs," said Frank Reilly, Director of TRC Energy Services. "These programs have become models for other businesses looking for ways to both protect the environment and reduce energy costs."
TRC has been designing and managing energy efficiency programs throughout its customer offerings since 2003. In 2007 alone, TRC's Energy Services staff have designed and managed energy efficiency programs that resulted in annual electric savings of more than 145,000 MWh and annual gas savings of more than 1,030,600 DTh. This corresponds to annual C02 emissions reductions of 145,800 tons. "The average American's carbon footprint is 18 tons so a reduction of this magnitude would offset the carbon footprint of all of TRC's 2,600 employees and their families for one year," added Reilly.
TRC creates and implements sophisticated and innovative solutions to the challenges facing America's real estate, environmental, energy, and infrastructure markets. The Company is also a leading provider of technical, financial, risk management, and construction services to commercial and government customers across the country. TRC Energy Services designs and implements turnkey energy projects as well as innovative energy and green building programs serving multiple sectors including schools, commercial and industrial, and multifamily buildings.
