Collaborate with ESCO Energy Services Program for energy savings

GE Lighting has established the ESCO Energy Services Program (via alliances with selected energy services companies [ESCOs]) to help customers explore energy strategies that take into account factors such as cost-of-light payback, ROI, rebates, financing and government incentives.

“The ESCOs involved meet high customer service, integrity and
credibility standards,” said Lou Mane, ESCO sales development manager
with GE Lighting. “By working together, we’re better able to develop
comprehensive strategies for customers’ lighting and electrical
controls, motors, drives and overall building management. These
alliances enhance our ability to help customers develop all-encompassing
plans for energy savings.”

The primary focus of this approach is to analyze, design and implement
solutions that work together to conserve energy for customers over the
long term. Throughout the process—including planning and
installation—GE’s spec team will work with customers and ESCOs to create
customized plans to achieve “optimal energy-saving results and seamless
transitions”.

Mane says the ESCO relationships enable GE to go far beyond the circuit
breaker, switch and lamp. “We want to help customers meet and exceed
their energy goals, specifically in commercial, property management,
government, institutional, retail, healthcare and industrial settings
where energy savings can provide a strategic advantage.”
