Conservation programs help customers save electricity and save money. As consumer-owned electric utilities, we feel it is our job to teach customers how to save money while also saving the environment.
Working together makes it convenient and cost effective for FMPA’s members to bring the benefits of energy efficiency and conservation to their hometown utility. Programs include ENERGY STAR®, online energy tools, Energy Services Company (ESCO) and energy auditors.
ENERGY STAR® helps consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices
ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy to provide strategies and tools to help utilities promote energy-saving campaigns. FMPA's ENERGY STAR program helps utilities conveniently and cost-effectively implement energy efficiency campaigns.
Free online tools and resources help customers conserve electricity and learn how to manage home energy use
The Internet-based resource called Energy Depot® for Homes provides valuable tools, including an online energy progile, energy calculator, energy library and more. Working together through FMPA enabled individual cities to purchase the online energy audit software in a cost-effective manner. The interactive online software includes:
ESCO is a Key Accounts program designed to build and maintain relationships between members and their large customers
FMPA coordinates the relationship between participating members and contractors to provide project-type services such as lighting retrofits, HVAC upgrades, and energy management system services.
FMPA’s energy auditor program provides training and roundtable opportunities
Training and roundtables provide a forum for energy auditors to meet and discuss work procedures, policies, practices, industry changes, equipment, materials, site specific issues and other issues. Training topics are based on suggestions by participating Energy Auditors. There may be a cost for certain training programs; however, there is no fee to participate in the roundtable program.
