ANAHEIM, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$WLDN—Willdan Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WLDN) announced today that Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has awarded Willdan an $18 million contract to continue delivering their Small Business Direct Install program. This contract includes the direct installation of energy efficiency measures to PSE’s electric and gas small business customers, with an additional focus on small lodging and agricultural businesses for the new program cycle.
“Small business owners are historically underserved and don’t typically have the time needed to access utility services and programs,” said Penny Kyser, Program Manager of PSE’s Small Business Energy Efficiency program. “These customers present extensive untapped potential for energy savings. The Small Business Direct Install program focuses on these customers by providing no-cost energy services as well as raising their awareness of PSE rebate programs available to them. Willdan and PSE’s long and successful partnership has allowed PSE to consistently reach our most in-need customers while delivering savings goals.”
“This contract represents a continuation of Willdan’s service to PSE and their customers over the last 12 years,” said Mike Bieber, Willdan’s CEO. “The program has grown in size and scope over those years, serving 12,000 businesses and delivering 112M kWh in energy savings to date.”
