CMC Energy Services was awarded the Northeast Clean Energy Council’s (NECEC) Back to Work Challenge Innovating Remote Work & Technology Solutions Award at the organization’s virtual event in November. CMC President & CEO Tina Bennett accepted the award on behalf of the company.
CMC received the award for helping to develop and pilot Virtual Pre-Assessments to find energy efficiency opportunities for customers impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown. These efforts allowed us to continue providing energy and cost savings safely to customers.
“It’s very exciting to be recognized, especially amongst so many other outstanding candidates,” Bennett said. “Creating virtual offerings took flexibility, an innovative spirit and resilience to expand our business – and has required seamless collaboration between CMC, our utility partners, program vendors and our distributors to make it happen and be successful.”
“We are grateful for our partners’ and vendors’ confidence in us to move our ideas forward. It really does take a village to make it work,” she added.
During her acceptance speech for the award, Bennett also thanked Joe Roy, CMC’s senior program manager, who helped successfully lead the charge for Virtual Pre-Assessments – along with his team members – Andrea McCormack, Mike Campanelli and Ralph Valente who all went the extra mile to ensure this project’s success.
The Clean Energy Back to Work Challenge is an initiative launched to highlight innovative projects from clean energy organizations that successfully adapted their business practices amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. NECEC invited businesses and organizations to nominate their best practices, pilots, innovations and model projects to be considered for the awards. They selected 12 finalists from 22 nominees.
In addition to CMC, NECEC awarded Nexamp, Eversource Energy, Embue Inc. and PowerOptions with Back to Work Challenge awards.
