Power TakeOff has launched two new utility COVID-19 Community Assistance Programs that provide customer support to financially at-risk businesses and institutions through customized consultations aimed at optimizing buildings while fully or partially closed. The unique situation demonstrates Power TakeOff’s robust machine learning prospecting engine and flexible, versatile customer engagement team that has been remotely and virtually engaging businesses since 2007. To-date, the team has helped local businesses and schools save nearly 1,000,000 kWh (approximately $100,000) during Stay-At-Home...

Although many utility implementation contractors are now developing and piloting virtual program delivery, Power TakeOff has been providing virtual and remote engagement since the company's start in 2007 and is a foundational design of the company's Virtual Commissioning™ (VCx™) Program. The benefits of this delivery model were innovative prior to COVID-19, but essential during the COVID-19 crisis. As the pandemic brought about changes to the way most businesses operate, the VCx™ Program was able to maintain...

Small and Medium businesses have traditionally been hard to reach the market for utilities. The potential for savings at a single site is significantly smaller and historically the cost per kWh savings less attractive than larger C&I locations for utility energy efficiency programs. This year Power TakeOff's Virtual Commissioning (VCxTM) Program is on track to surpass each filed program goal for our utility partners. In light of this success, one utility partner has recently increased the program...

Power TakeOff's VCxTM Program with ComEd has found a rhythm that works for utility SMB and public institutions which we engage. These markets are historically under-served by utility DSM programs due to their limited time and capital budgets. However, by pinpointing and only engaging the locations in a utility portfolio that would benefit most from easy to implement low and no-cost opportunities, we are having relevant conversations with organizations that have a clear opportunity, and not...

Year to date, Power TakeOff has worked with over 500 SMB customers, achieving an average savings of around 13% and $6,500 per participant. In addition to direct energy savings, the program is able to help businesses continue on the energy efficiency journey by referring them to other energy efficiency programs within a utility’s portfolio to provide a comprehensive experience for the business. In 2018, Power TakeOff expanded its existing implementation contract with Commonwealth Edison and kicked off...
