Midwest Machinery Company has one more reason to celebrate. After the Oklahoma General Manager Nolan Chance had been awarded the SPX Ed Seniza, our Denver team received an award from Xcel Energy.The award was given due to our team’s outstanding performance in the 2017 Xcel Energy Midstream Cooling Program.
Xcel Energy Colorado introduced a midstream commercial heating and cooling program in 2015 in which distributors receive rebates based on their sales of high-efficiency equipment. This incentive encourages them to stock and upsell high-efficiency HVAC units.
According to SWEEP Organization (Southwest Ennergy Eficiency Project), this process also transforms the market for commercial heating and cooling equipment by increasing the range of efficient products available for installation. Because efficient heating and cooling equipment is readily available, rather than being a special order, the likelihood that efficient equipment is installed greatly increases.
Xcel understands that maintaining stock of high-efficiency equipment and actively upselling high-efficiency models will benefit the bottom line, reduce customer’s electricity bills, and benefit the environment.
Midwest Machinery Denver sold more heat pumps in 2017 through the program than any other distributor in Colorado, and more than doubled its sales from last year. Xcel calculates that since 2015 Midwest Machinery has been responsible for $93,421 in annual energy savings.
Richard Miller, our General Manager for Midwest Machinery Denver couldn’t be prouder of his team and with the recognition.“It is an honor to receive an award like this. We know we sell a TON of Climatemaster Heat Pumps each year, but it’s always nice to know that we’re leading the pack in Colorado when it comes to efficiency savings from Water-Source heat pumps.”
