Nashville, TN – Earthwell Energy Management, Inc. was recognized last month at an awards ceremony in Nashville, TN, for its role in reducing electric demand in the Kentucky District of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA.) Earthwell was awarded first place in kWh reduction in the KY District by the TVA rebate program, EnergyRight Solutions for Business & Industry, for reducing 1,637,051 kWh through energy efficiency projects in the Valley.
“Earthwell Energy Management has been a very active partner with our EnergyRight® Solutions for Business and Industry Programs. These programs are offered in partnership with our local power companies. TVA is pleased to have professional partners like Earthwell Energy implementing energy savings across the valley which earned them with the 2012 Most kWh saved in KY award,” said Bob Balzar, VP Energy Efficiency and Demand Response.
TVA energy efficiency initiatives in 2012 saved enough energy to power more than 35,000 Tennessee Valley homes for a year. The programs reduced electric power usage by 560 gigawatt-hours for the second straight year, exceeded TVA’s annual energy efficiency goals for the fifth year in a row, and raised total energy savings to more than 1,600 gigawatt-hours since 2007. In addition to keeping rates low and power reliable, the utility maintains a strong commitment to energy efficiency and aims for even higher demand reduction targets in 2013.
Earthwell has implemented energy conservation projects with a wide range of customers throughout the KY District, ranging from large industrial and warehousing facilities to churches, nonprofits, retail spaces and offices. Kira Costanza of Earthwell Energy Management, based in Bowling Green, KY, notes, “Through its effective rebate, the Energy Right Solutions program enables end users to recognize and implement important energy saving measures with a quick payback. We look forward to continuing to be an active member with the program and increasing our energy reduction targets along with the TVA in the coming year!”
