Capitalize on HVAC Efficiency Program, Funded by Xcel Energy

By Ken Briodagh July 31, 2017

According to a recent announcement, 75F will be the first partner company to join the One-Stop Efficiency Shop for HVAC upgrades, which was designed by the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) and delivers it for Xcel Energy Minnesota. A national leader, the CEE offering has earned the designation of “Exemplary Energy Efficiency Program” from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.

Eligible small- and mid-size businesses in Xcel Energy Minnesota's service territory can qualify for up to 60 percent rebates on the installed costs of HVAC efficiency upgrades. In addition, customers may qualify for 3.9 percent APR financing provided by CEE as part of the program. This financing package, combined with the efficiency gains provided by 75F smart building controls, enables businesses to achieve significant ROI while supporting the principles of the Paris Climate Accord.

“Our new HVAC offerings build on the outstanding success of the One-Stop Efficiency Shop's longstanding lighting upgrades program,” said Mark Totino, Lead HVAC Consultant, CEE. “Since 2000, One-Stop has facilitated over $65 million in rebates to 16,758 customers of Xcel Energy Minnesota, helping those customers save more than $668 million over the life of their new lighting systems. HVAC systems typically represent 40% of total energy usage in commercial buildings, so new opportunities for small businesses are substantial.”

As a member of the United Nations Environment Program — Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative, 75F said it is committed to making the planet great again by creating and installing green, smart building technology that incorporates the principles developed in the Paris Climate Accord and helping customers achieve green building and LEED certification goals.

“CEE is a natural partner for 75F. Our proactive, predictive solution is quick to install on a building's existing HVAC equipment, requiring just a few enhancements,” said Deepinder Singh, CEO, 75F. “We provide each of our customers with up to 50% annual energy cost savings in addition to the benefits of cleaner indoor air, improved comfort, reduced maintenance costs and prolonged system life.”
