Pilot programs with Efficiency Maine tackle data, integrationIntelligent Utility, December 25, 2013
In this time of government shutdowns and showdowns, thinking about efficiency as dictated by legislation may seem a bit amusing. But, Efficiency Maine, an independent trust that serves as a consolidating “home base” for consumer efficiency programs, all started with the Maine Legislature and a 2002 bill, and its no joke. In fact, it’s wildly successful, with a bevy of programs for fuel, alternative energy, thermal efficiency, a break on costs and a source for supply options—all for the end-user.
“Efficiency Maine offers programs that promote the efficient and cost-effective use of energy for individuals and businesses. Think of us as a kind of statewide utility that delivers Maine’s lowest cost energy resource, which is energy efficiency,” said Paul Badeau, director of communications with Efficiency Maine
