The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) this month is awarding its Triple E Award—for Energy Efficiency Effort—to PC Professor, a company that provides computer training, service, and support in South Florida. Recently, the small business has achieved the highest energy efficiencies for its West Palm Beach building, demonstrating “E” for effort in using cost-effective energy efficiency that render energy and cost savings.
“The PSC is pleased to recognize PC Professor for its implementation of PSC-approved, cost-effective conservation programs,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “We congratulate the leadership of Howard Fellman, President, who not only helps people hone their computer skills but is also achieving his company’s goal of energy efficiency. We hope other small businesses will follow suit, working with their local utility to help reduce their energy footprint.”
“We’re very proud of our commitment to save energy and protect Florida’s environment,” Fellman said. “We worked closely with Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) to install energy-efficient reflective roofing and efficient insulation to reduce the amount of energy we use to cool our facility. I’m honored to accept this award and appreciate FPL Business Account Specialist Doug Klein’s guidance on our improvements that also include a new 40-ton HVAC system that will decrease our energy costs.”
“Every small business is different, which is why the free, customized FPL Business Energy Evaluation and our team of energy-efficiency experts focus on helping business customers understand their energy usage and determine which energy-efficient investments may be best suited for their individual operations,” said Eric Silagy, President & CEO, FPL. “We’re honored to help local Florida businesses like PC Professor make smart energy choices so they can grow and continue to offer important services in our communities.”
The PSC encourages cost-effective conservation and renewable energy to reduce the use of fossil fuels and defer the need for new generating capacity. Through the Florida Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act, the PSC approves conservation programs for the state’s five investor-owned utilities, JEA, and the Orlando Utilities Commission.
Covering the state’s five major geographic areas, each month the PSC gives its Triple E Award to a local business that has accomplished superior energy efficiency. Look for PSC Triple E Award recipients throughout 2014 under Hot Topics on the PSC’s homepage, www.floridapsc.com.
