GSA Earth Day 2019NEW YORK -- The Northeast and Caribbean Region of the U.S. General Services Administration hosted an Earth Day event on April 23 where they celebrated the partnerships that have contributed to their green energy projects. Among the vendors was NuEnergen Energy Consulting who is responsible for managing the GSA’s Region 2 Demand Response enrollment, participation and lucrative success.

 

NuEnergen presented a ceremonial check that represents the $437,219.01 in revenue that GSA earned in 2018 under the Demand Response program, exceeding last year’s earnings.

 

“Region 2 began program participation in 2011 and has on average earned roughly $350,000 annually since that time,” said Kevin Hamilton, CEO, NuEnergen. “In 2018, Region 2 earned over $437,000, and since 2011, has saved the taxpayers of our country nearly $3 million by way of its participation in Demand Response.”

 

Nisha Jasani of the General Services Administration reported that the sustainable green life cycle includes earning revenue by reducing energy usage in buildings when called upon by the electric power grid operators and utilities, such as Con Edison in New York. Rebates are then used to fund energy projects in GSA owned and operated buildings.
