GES Awarded DP&L Channel Partner for Three of Four Years!
The news at this week’s Dayton Power & Light Channel Partner Program launch focused on commercial rebate opportunities for DP&L business customers who upgrade to more energy-efficient electrical products in 2013. During the presentation it was announced that $4.9 million in rebates was distributed by DP&L in 2012 to their business customers who performed these upgrades.
The program provides DP&L’s customers with generous incentives for new equipment purchases that reduce energy consumption and demand, derived mainly from upgrades in lighting, motors, and air conditioning. The goal of the program is to help customers pay for the upgrade costs associated with energy efficient technologies, and then the customer benefits for years to come with lower electric bills. In order to more effectively provide DP&L customers with the information needed to claim rebates for projects, DP&L partnered with selected area contractors, engineers and electrical distributors known for energy efficiency experience.
At this week’s kickoff, Dickman Supply’s Green Energy Solutions (GES) team was pleased to learn that they had earned DP&L’s 2012 “Channel Partner of the Year” Award. They earned the designation by successfully consulting on 135 energy reduction projects during the year with DP&L customers, the highest number in the entire DP&L territory, and earned their customers more than $350,000 in rebate dollars from DP&L. This is the third time in the four years of the program’s existence that Dickman Supply has taken the top honors.
Looking ahead, DP&L announced that the 2013 budget will be $4.2 million in incentives available, and that they have added additional rebate opportunities to the program. Working with a DP&L Channel Partner is strongly recommended, as some processes require pre-approval of the products and methods to be used. Channel Partners like Dickman Supply’s GES team are familiar with the process and have the knowledge and experience to provide the documentation needed for pre-approval and final rebate claims.
Dickman Supply Vice President and Director of its Green Energy Solutions Division, Doug Borchers, stated, “We are honored to be DP&L’s 2012 Partner of the Year. We strive to optimize our client’s energy usage and maximize their return on investment. When combining the DP&L rebate program with currently available tax deductions, lower demand penalties, and ongoing energy savings, many of these energy upgrade projects pay for themselves in one year, showing a 100% return on investment, while our customers continue to enjoy the significant savings on their electric bill for many years to come.” He went on, “This is a total team effort between Dickman people in all three of our locations… Sidney, Greenville, and Celina, and the combined knowledge and experience of our electrical contractor partners.” The team’s mission is to work closely with clients to determine the optimal combination of energy efficient technologies and available incentive programs that significantly reduce energy consumption, and provide the highest return on investment.
