ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin's (NYSE: LMT) energy efficiency team helped save more than 400 million kilowatt hours of electricity and four million therms of natural gas in 2009. That is enough energy to power more than 40,000 homes for a year. From a greenhouse gas emissions perspective, it is the equivalent of taking 55,000 cars off the road for the year.
One of the nation's largest implementers of energy efficiency programs, Lockheed Martin currently manages energy efficiency programs for a number of utilities and state agencies, including Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, Pepco Holdings, AmerenUE, Silicon Valley Power, Cascade Natural Gas, the Energy Trust of Oregon, and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
From a Commercial and Industrial Efficiency perspective, Lockheed Martin's team manages major process-oriented and other energy-efficiency upgrades to help utility companies' largest customers reduce power demand, save energy, improve productivity, reduce emissions and waste materials, and become more competitive. Working with utilities and state agencies, Lockheed Martin manages customer outreach, performs energy audits and assessments, designs and implements programs, and distributes program incentives, as well as monitors and validates results and energy saved.
Lockheed Martin's team also works on behalf of utilities, federal, state and regional groups to design, implement and promote energy efficiency programs with retailers, contractors, and builders that save homeowners energy.
