Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) has awarded ICF a three-year, $30 million contract extension to implement residential and commercial energy efficiency portfolios, ICF reported on Thursday.
"For over 10 years, ICF has worked closely with SMECO to develop, design, test and implement its energy efficiency programs, including full-scale rollout of the tremendously successful smart thermostat pilot program," said Kyle Wiggins, ICF SVP and commercial energy lead.
Under the extension, ICF will support SMECO's EmPOWER Maryland Programs, including marketing, customer participation and program management. ICF will also deliver innovative designs for energy efficiency pilot programs including schools, renewable energy, loyalty and rewards, as well as low-to-moderate income offerings.
"We are excited to work together to evolve these programs to better support the co-op's changing relationship with its customer-members and help meet Maryland's new energy targets,” Wiggins added.
With the award, ICF will add to its dedicated history of delivering management and energy efficiency programs that expand portfolios. In Nov. 2020, the company was also awarded multiple recompete contracts to provide services in support of utilities’ programs.
ICF will expand its design and implementation services to support the utilities' new home construction and renovations programs for residential, multifamily and commercial and industrial metered buildings. In addition, the company will deliver services, such as training to support workforce development and help transform the energy efficiency and building construction industries.
