Green Solutions

In addition to meeting your procurement needs, Patriot Energy offers a variety of programs designed to promote efficient and intelligent energy use.  We have all of the resources needed to successfully plan and execute a comprehensive energy solutions program that will create real, sustained economic benefit.

Energy Audits

Patriot Energy has partnered with national leaders in demand-side management to provide additional cost-saving services to our customers. Our experts will complete a comprehensive audit of the energy consumption in your facility and make recommendations for renovations. You will be presented with an itemized listing of “Energy Conservation Measures” (ECM) unique to your building detailing current expenditures, the cost of updates, projected savings, and a rate of return on your investment. Patriot Energy is up to date with all available rebate opportunities to maximize your savings. Additional funding is also available from our Demand Response programs.

Demand Response

The way your facility uses electricity can now save you money. The amount of generation capacity needed to assure electric reliability is outpacing current levels of supply. “Demand Response” programs have been gaining recognition as a viable alternative to building costly new generation. By agreeing to reduce your power consumption when called upon during peak demand events (think of a hot summer day), you will receive a payment tied to the amount of energy you conserved against your regular power usage. These programs are flexible as you can elect to begin reducing demand as quickly as 30 minutes after an event is called, or wait as long as two hours to begin curtailment. Most program participants will also receive a monthly payment just for being available even if no event is called. Online resources are available to view your facilities real-time power consumption, receive program updates, and view payment history. Patriot Energy will manage the entire process from start to finish and handle all of the metering requirements, paperwork, and settlements on your behalf.

Renewable Energy Certificates

Thinking about going green? Many businesses are committed to helping the environment, reducing costs, and enhancing their image by taking the extra step of using green resources. Patriot Energy may be able to help you purchase or sell Renewable Energy Certificates (REC's). Each REC is a tradable commodity equal to proof of ownership of 1 megawatt-hour (1,000 kWh) of electricity generated at an eligible renewable source. The electric delivery system is set up in such a way that all power is transmitted into the regional "grid" before being pulled out by your local distribution company and delivered to your meter. Although the renewable resource may be located many miles away you can still take ownership of the clean power by purchasing REC's. The cost of Renewable Energy Certificates can be factored into our portfolio of standard supply products upon request.

On-Site Renewable Generation

Thinking about going green? Many businesses are committed to helping the environment, reducing costs, and enhancing their image by taking the extra step of using green resources. Patriot Energy has partnered with national leaders in solar panel installation to provide options for our customers to become more energy independent by generating their own renewable electricity. There are many factors to consider when determining if installing a solar array is the right step to manage your facilities energy costs. The experts at Patriot Energy will guide you through the entire process from logistics, financing, rebates, installation, and maintenance.
