Recently, Janet Purchase, Energy Manager for Riverside, CA, contacted EnergyCAP, Inc. (ECI) with good news.

Just seven months after implementing EnergyCAP, the County has already saved $96,000. This amount is 81 percent of the initial investment of purchasing EnergyCAP.

  1. Why did you purchase EnergyCAP?

  2. What was the financial incentive you received from your local government partnership?

  3. What error did your utility bill entry staff find?
