Rockville, Md., 08/17/2009 --
Lockheed Martin announced today that it was awarded a three-year contract by Pepco Holdings, Inc., to implement energy efficiency and conservation programs and services for its Pepco non-residential customers in the District of Columbia. Also known as "demand side management," the contract is part of Pepco's plan to empower customers to manage and reduce their energy usage and costs while protecting the environment. The programs are scheduled to run until 2011 and include a budget of $12.7 million.
"Pepco has made a commitment to energy efficiency as a tool to help its customers conserve power and reduce their environmental impact," says Tom Grumbly, vice president, Lockheed Martin Energy & Environmental Services. "We are excited to help Pepco and its customers solve their complex energy challenges through innovative energy efficiency programs and green technology applications."
Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will manage several programs to encourage Pepco's commercial, governmental and institutional customers to identify and implement energy saving opportunities related to building performance. The Prescriptive Rebate Program, Custom Incentive Program, HVAC Efficiency Program, and Building Commissioning and Operations & Maintenance Program will be designed to encourage the use of cost-effective, energy efficient products and design practices during new construction, renovations, remodels, and equipment replacement events. The programs will encourage electrical, mechanical, and lighting systems improvements, and employ best practices for building commissioning, as well as improving building operation and maintenance practices for Pepco's customers.
"These programs support President Barack Obama's vision for a new green energy economy that will transform the way we use energy," said Thomas Graham, President, Pepco Region. "Pepco is looking forward to working with Lockheed Martin to promote the value of purchasing energy efficient products to our customers with an eye toward making program participation as simple as possible for consumers."
