PA’s Shared Energy Manager

WES has been selected to provide energy management services to five (5) municipalities across Pennsylvania as part of the Shared Energy Management (SEM) program under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP). These services are tailored to each municipality’s needs and goals, and are not a “one size fits all” approach to energy management. WES is specifically partnering with the municipalities to understand what actions and assistance areas can be of greatest benefit to their organizations and communities. Examples of specific technical assistance tasks which WES is performing for the municipalities include:

  • Energy Benchmarking
  • Energy Star Certification Facility Verification
  • Energy Audits & Energy Conservation Measure (ECM) analysis and recommendation for:
    • Municipal Buildings
    • Streetlighting and Traffic Lighting
    • Wastewater Treatment Facilities
  • Renewable Energy Feasibility Evaluation, including Solar Photovoltaic (PV) and renewable thermal technologies
  • Fleet Analysis, including alternative fuel vehicles
  • Energy Management Plan creation
  • ECM specification and implementation assistance

Under PA DEP’s SEM program, WES’ goal is to partner with the five municipalities to understand their current energy usage profiles and to help further their objectives of decreasing energy consumption, lowering energy costs, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing use of renewable energy. WES has provided similar services for hundreds of clients and sees significant opportunity for these five new partners.
