FORT WASHINGTON, PA (August 31, 2022) – Do you remember where you were on October 13, 1977? On that day, CMC Energy Services was founded with the simple goal of helping people save energy and money. Now, almost 45 years later, CMC’s impact has grown, contributing to not only lowering customer bills but also to achieving energy efficiency, climate and social equity goals. And, we’ve helped to create hundreds of living-wage jobs for CMC team members over the years. Through the years, CMC also has:
- Helped a Lot of Families—CMC has eased the financial burden for more than 600,000 customers,helping them cut their bills by as much as 25 percent.

“On behalf of myself and my sister, Judith, I’m humbled by the trust and opportunity our utility partners have provided CMC Energy Services,” said Mimi Iklé-Khalsa, the co-owner of CMC and the daughter of founder Doris Iklé. “It’s their continued confidence in CMC and the part we play in making life more affordable for their residential customers and more profitable for their business customers that makes me feel lucky to carry on my mother’s legacy.”
