Orion Energy Systems Recognized as 2013 Xcel Energy Efficiency Partner

Orion is in a select group of Xcel Energy Trade Partners who achieved exceptional energy efficiency.

MANITOWOC, Wis. — January 30, 2014 — Orion Energy Systems is honored to be recognized as a 2013 Xcel Energy Efficiency Partner for outstanding efforts to save energy. The award recognizes that Orion is in a select group of Xcel Energy Trade Partners who achieved exceptional energy efficiency.


Klaus Pilz and Tina Prigge accept the Xcel Energy Efficiency Partner Award on behalf of Orion Energy Systems for their work with Rocky Mountain Metal Container.

Throughout the year, Xcel Energy offers incentives such as rebates or funding for energy assessments to its business customers to encourage them to make energy efficient choices. Orion works with Xcel Energy to achieve maximum incentives for customers who complete energy projects. For example, Orion helped Rocky Mountain Metal Container complete a non-traditional multiple phase retrofit project at their production facility that qualified for a combination of prescriptive and custom incentives from Xcel Energy.

"Sure, the combination prescriptive and custom incentive required extra effort, but it helped the project gain a favorable ROI allowing the customer to confidently move forward with the project," said Klaus Pilz, Orion Energy Systems National Account Representative. "Orion's Rebate Management Team excels at reaching out to local utilities to explore all incentive options on the customer's behalf."

"Many of these conservation projects are often invisible to those not directly involved," said Karen Rhodes, Xcel Energy Efficiency Marketing Manager. "These awards are a way to congratulate these businesses so that employees and customers realize what's happening behind the scenes."
