The small business program with the one-two punch
Mar 2, 2020

As the number of energy efficiency programs targeting the small business sector has increased, utilities and program implementers have recognized that traditional programs don't always provide the support and meaningful financial incentives required to move the needle.

This paper examines two programs in Mississippi that are looking to change that:

  • Entergy Mississippi’s Small Business Solutions Program provides additional benefits to small business installation contractors serving the target community by leveraging local contractors and lighting service providers, known as trade allies, to procure and install the lighting equipment.
  • Dominion Energy South Carolina’s Program is geared toward helping the utility better serve its small business customers in underserved areas of its service territory by engaging with lighting service providers to work with an auditor to provide turnkey installation services.
Learn how ICF helped both companies design a model that works within each utility’s unique service territory and regulatory environment.
