Serving smaller industrial facilities is always a challenge. The systems are often as custom and complex as those of the big industrial down the road. Too often, as a DSM program manager, you are left with the unsatisfying choice of handling projects for small facilities via conventional methods at high cost, or not serving this sector at all.
Cascade’s innovative approach to serving small industrial and agricultural facilities involves deep collaboration with trade allies, coupled with best-in-class, vendor-friendly analysis tools, and streamlined program processes. We put the vendor in charge and give them the tools and knowledge they need to succeed. We understand that both a vendor’s and participant’s time are extremely valuable, so the program must turn projects quickly and efficiently while still making a compelling and accurate case for investment in energy efficiency. And, the program must acknowledge and support trade allies (all the way down to the individual) in terms of where they stand with their knowledge and commitment to energy efficiency. Cascade excels at turning skeptics into contributors and turning contributors into superstar energy experts.
