virtual-earth-day-logoIn recognition of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, NuEnergen’s Kevin Hamilton and Brett Wu marked the occasion by joining the GSA Region 2’s first-ever virtual event to highlight the sustainability and good-practice initiatives fostered by NuEnergen’s work in the Demand Response program. The NuEnergen team had the pleasure of providing a keynote speech detailing the results of the GSA’s participation to date, and perhaps as importantly, an overview of Demand Response’s resilience even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to continue generating revenue for the customer and value to the US taxpayer. Highlighting the presentation was the virtual unveiling of a check in excess of $3 million, which represents the earnings accrued by the GSA to date through program participation.

 

PBS Region 2 Regional Energy Coordinator Brian K. Magden stated “Our successful Demand Response program in the Region causes no discomfort to our tenants, requires no capital investment, earns GSA energy rebates, saves taxpayer dollars, and reduces carbon emissions while protecting the reliability of the power grids,” says Magden. “This program is an excellent example of good environmental, operational and budget stewardship.”

 

GSA Region 2’s Virtual Earth Day was a great success and again shows how GSA has led the way during this pandemic for federal agencies when it comes to excellence in leveraging teleworking optimally throughout our Region.
