The first phase of Lancaster Choice Energy’s (LCE) Small Commercial Direct Install program is reportedly off to a great start, helping 138 local businesses save almost 2 million kilowatts of energy.
“As a local community choice aggregator, LCE enables us to reinvest in our community,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “The opportunity to provide money-saving programs such as these to locally owned, mom-and-pop businesses, as well as local residents, is a big part of why Lancaster chose to establish its own CCA – in addition to creating a more sustainable environment for generations of residents to come.
“We are proud to offer this no-cost program to support our small local businesses,” Parris added. “Not only will businesses use less energy and reduce their carbon footprint with the installation of energy efficiency measures, they will also realize a decrease in energy costs.”
In April 2019, LCE launched its Small Commercial Direct Install Program. This program, funded with $1.2 million from Southern California Edison at the instruction of the California Public Utilities Commission, offers local businesses free energy efficiency consultations and equipment upgrades and installations.
