Turnkey lighting solutions provider Energy Management Collaborative (EMC) was recognized this week by Southern California Edison (SCE) as its second highest energy savings customer agent in 2013. EMC applied for and completed energy projects that resulted in a savings of 4.7 million kilowatt hours (kWh) and 850 kW being removed from the grid.

As one of the United States’ largest electric utilities, SCE serves a population of nearly 14 million via 4.0 million customer accounts in a 50,000 square-mile service area within Central, Coastal, and Southern California.

emcDelivering a savings of 4.7 million kWh and removing 850 kW from the grid is the equivalent of the carbon sequestered by 85,028 newly planted trees or the removal of 691 passenger vehicles for a year from our roads. This was no easy task, and required a collective effort by both EMC and their partners at Southern California Edison. Program elements have changed dramatically in recent years, making the process of filing and completing projects with incentives more challenging. The EMC team led the effort to coordinate all projects through to completion.

Energy Management Collaborative is a provider of lighting solutions in the Americas. Since 2003, major retail chains, multinational industrial and commercial corporations, healthcare providers and government entities have sought the energy services company for its leadership in assessing their lighting needs and implementing high quality, cost effective and long term lighting solutions. The company’s trademarked project management approach, EnergyMAXXSM, maximizes customer results in each project phase, from initial planning through installation, bringing an immediate, positive impact on their bottom line.
