Schleidt Works energy efficiency consulting has served as a trusted advisor to utility companies for years. Some of the services we offer include:
Rebate Program Management
We assist utility companies with designing and implementing energy efficiency rebate programs for their customers. There are a lot of steps involved in program design and implementation, including:
- Analyzing market sizing
- Calculating appropriate rebate amounts
- Selecting eligible equipment, including efficiency specification requirements
- Marketing, including classes for customers, social media messaging, and easy-to-understand program documents and flyers
- Providing technical guidance to customers who wish to receive a rebate
Schleidt Works oversees every step from initial design to evaluating the program’s results and return on investment.
Energy Efficiency Measure & Verification
After an energy efficiency measure has been implemented, Schleidt Works can determine whether it is delivering the energy savings and payback period originally estimated. If actual results underperform estimates, we identify potential drivers by conducting walk-throughs and discussions with customers. We determine if new equipment is operating correctly, whether concurrent changes in energy usage skew results, and whether the original assumptions used in estimates were accurate. Let us serve as the third-party validator for your program.
Savings Underwriting for Efficiency Upgrades
When an energy company proposes efficiency upgrades to a customer and requests a rebate from the utility company, our energy efficiency consulting team can evaluate whether the savings estimate and proposed payback period are reasonable.
Electrification and Load Building
We lead initiatives that increase electric load and reduce reliance on fossil fuels, also known as decarbonization. Whether it’s providing information and technical expertise on emerging technologies like high efficiency heat pumps and electric vehicles, or helping to design programs that promote consumers to shift from combustion of fossil fuels to electricity, Schleidt Works is here to help.
Electrification has the triple benefit of taking steps toward decarbonization, providing energy savings to consumers, and providing increased revenue streams to utility companies. We believe so strongly in electrification and its profitability that our work can be done at no out-of-pocket cost to you.
Let us calculate the payback of electrification programs using custom analytics for your market. We can analyze the overall profitability of the initiative and assist with program design, financing methods, and marketing efforts to make your electrification initiative a success.
