SaskPower/Honeywell continue EPC program
REGINA, SK — SaskPower and Honeywell have signed a five-year contract to continue their Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Program in Saskatchewan.
"SaskPower and Honeywell will continue their alliance to help our province's larger businesses reduce their energy use, and their energy costs," Minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said. "The EPC program also delivers significant environmental benefits, and plays an important role in our efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions."
EPC is an energy management service designed to help commercial and institutional customers reduce energy related operating costs through upgrades to lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation systems. The energy and cost savings are guaranteed by SaskPower, which means upgrades can be done within current operating budgets.
"We are pleased to continue our alliance with Honeywell," SaskPower vice-president Customer Services Judy May said. "Over the past 10 years we've signed EPC projects to upgrade more than 200 facilities in Saskatchewan, including schools, commercial buildings, government and health facilities, as well as SaskPower's own buildings in Regina."
The projects underway to-date through the SaskPower/Honeywell alliance will realize combined annual customer utility savings of more than $5.1 million and save over 32 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity each year.
"The program brings significant benefits to local organizations, upgrading facilities across the province while saving millions," Paul Orzeske, president of Honeywell Building Solutions said. "SaskPower and Honeywell bring the combined expertise to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions — all without up-front costs or increased budgets. It's a dynamic alliance."
Honeywell is a global leader in energy and environmental services, working with organizations to conserve energy and optimize building operations. In Saskatchewan, the company has a team of local employees working with SaskPower to deliver the building retrofits and energy savings under the EPC program.
