“Energy Smart helps make the economy stronger and our real estate more sustainable.”
Energy Smart is a comprehensive energy efficiency program developed by the New Orleans City Council and implemented by Aptim Environmental & Infrastructure. The program helps residential and business electric customers save energy and money by reducing the upfront cost of energy efficiency upgrades to their homes and facilities through financial incentives.
For nearly 10 years, Energy Smart has worked with numerous business customers throughout Orleans Parish to reduce their energy usage and save money through installing more energy-efficient building equipment, systems, and products.
“Energy Smart helps make the economy stronger and our real estate more sustainable,” says Kristin McKee, Program Director with APTIM. “We help customers from all market sectors, size and location, and we work hard to ensure equity throughout the city,” adds Derek Mills, Entergy New Orleans’ DSM Program Manager.
Energy Smart provides cash incentives to existing and new buildings for a variety of projects such as LED lighting, lighting controls, HVAC, building automation, chillers, motors, retro-commissioning and demand response. To date, Energy Smart has paid approximately $29M in incentives to over 86,000 participants, saving those customers nearly 236M kWh.
McKee and Mills, along with Ross Thevenot, Energy Smart Program Manager, have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce and helped to build awareness of the program and its incentives.
