Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce Receives Oncor SBDI Program Energy Efficiency Incentive for Upgrading to LED Lighting
As a participant in Oncor’s Small Business Direct Install (SBDI) Program, Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce received an incentive payment to support the energy-saving LED lighting upgrade. The incentive payment received covered the cost of the entire project! The incentive funds provided by Oncor were administered to help offset the cost of the energy efficiency project completed at the Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce Administration Building.
The incentive amount was determined by the total amount of energy and demand savings the project will save as a result of its efforts. The Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce Administration Building will save approximately 26,682 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of energy annually, equivalent to the carbon dioxide emissions of more than 1,299 gallons of gasoline, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calculations.
“The support we’ve received from Oncor has been a tremendous help in the progress and completion of this particular energy efficiency project,” said Colleen Cox, Vice President of Operations at the Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce. “We’re excited about the savings, as well as the opportunity to improve our infrastructure and increase the energy efficiency of our facilities.”
With the help of WLS Lighting, the energy efficient upgrades came as result of Corsicana & Navarro County Chamber of Commerce’s participation in the Oncor Small Business Direct Install (SBDI) Program, which offers monetary incentives to Oncor metered small commercial customers who implement qualifying energy-saving projects within the Oncor service area.
The resulting projects are mutually beneficial for the companies they serve through energy cost savings, and in turn they reduce demand on the Texas electric grid. Qualifying upgrades with Oncor’s SBDI Program include, lighting upgrades, and refrigeration equipment.
“For more than 20 years, we have been excited to offer energy efficiency programs to support the implementation of energy-efficient upgrades to small commercial properties,” Garry Jones, energy efficiency director at Oncor. “It’s been truly rewarding to watch these cost savings be redistributed back to the communities Oncor serves while supporting efficiency measures for those same communities’ future generations.”
Oncor’s group of qualified service providers include energy efficiency providers, retail electric providers (REPs), contractors, energy service companies and self-sponsors.
