Willdan Group, Inc. announced that Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has awarded Willdan contracts for two programs, totaling $1.7 million, that expand Willdan’s services in the Washington area. Under the first two-year contract, Willdan will implement PSE’s Multifamily and Commercial New Construction Early Design Assistance Program, which provides technical assistance early in the design phase of new multifamily and commercial buildings to increase energy efficiency. Under the second two-year contract, Willdan will implement the Telecommunications Efficiency Program, a new program which focuses on energy efficiency in existing telecommunications (or telecom) buildings.
“This new construction contract will bring new resources to help design teams meet their personal objectives while saving energy,” said Amit Singh, PSE’s Residential New Construction Program Manager. “Working with Willdan is just another way we are working together with our communities to create a clean energy future for all.”
“We’re excited to launch a new program to better serve our telecommunications customers,” said Allen Ma, PSE’s Telecommunications Efficiency Program Manager. “For the first time, Telecom and IT facilities will receive guidance from technical experts who can develop and implement energy-saving projects while maintaining system reliability and uptime.”
“These contracts build on our ten-year history serving Puget Sound Energy and their customers through the Small Business Direct Install Program,” said Tom Brisbin, Willdan’s CEO and Chairman. “These are Willdan’s first new construction and telecom contracts with Puget Sound Energy. Our recent investments in energy modeling and industrial energy efficiency made this expansion possible.”
