MTE as a “Top Performer” in five categories of the TVA EnergyRight suite of programs
MURFREESBORO, TN. – Middle Tennessee Electric (MTE) has been recognized as a “Top Performer” in five categories of the TVA EnergyRight suite of programs, including first place in the TVA’s seven-state service region for the Home Energy Evaluation Program.
The TVA EnergyRight FY2020 Highlights Report shows MTE’s Home Energy Evaluation Program had 1,443 participants and resulted in energy savings of 2.4 million kilowatt-hours, representing 13.25 percent of the program’s total energy savings by participants from the 153 Local Power Companies who distribute electricity generated by TVA.
“MTE is proud to partner with TVA to bring these valuable programs to our members,” said Chris Jones, MTE’s president/CEO. “Our energy services team is dedicated to helping our members conserve energy and save money. We strive to be their trusted energy advisors and as such, we’re here to help and provide opportunities to take control of electrical usage.”
MTE has received similar recognition in the past and will continue to push for innovative uses of renewables, cost savings technologies, and smart building and construction practices for their members, Jones said.
In the latest EnergyRight Highlights Report, released earlier this year, MTE was also celebrated as the second highest performer in the New Homes Program, with 9,769 participants adding 8 million kilowatt-hours or 14 percent of the Valley total. It ranked fourth for Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Assessments with 281 participants and 252,000 kilowatt-hours saved; and ranked fifth for participation in Electrification Programs (an added 9.78 million kilowatt-hours) and Green Power Providers (4.37 megawatts of alternating current capacity converted).
