Clarksville, TN – TVA EnergyRight recognizes CDE Lightband as a Top Performer for the fiscal year 2020 and also as Innovator of the Year.
These awards honor local power providers that demonstrate active participation and promotion of EnergyRight innovative programs and efforts as well as displaying enthusiasm communicating the values of TVA EnergyRight programs.
“CDE Lightband provides the staffing, promotion, and resources to ensure that customers are aware of and can participate in energy efficiency measures to save on electric bills,” said Cindy Herron, vice president of TVA EnergyRight. “We are very proud of this great accomplishment and are very excited about what lies ahead in this rapidly changing energy marketplace.”
Meeting this criterion, CDE Lightband has accomplished great success with its Home Energy Evaluations, particularly the virtual home audits, allowing the home energy advisor to guide customers via a mobile device.
With last year’s challenges, it was imperative to showcase high levels of resourcefulness and ingenuity using the tools and information necessary to provide confidence to the consumer in their energy decisions. In addition, the New Homes program promotes the electrification of new homes by incentivizing local builders to use electricity as their primary source of energy.
“Our Energy Services department remains a leader in energy research, development of new programs, and education of CDE Lightband customers. I’m really excited for the direction CDE Lightband is going and happy to see these efforts being recognized,” says the general manager of CDE Lightband, Brian Taylor.
CDE Lightband is also being recognized as an EnergyRight Innovator of the Year for its Power Partners website (https://partner.cdelightband.com/). Built to educate its customer base and engage them in their energy usage, this website offers CDE Lightband customers a one-stop source of valuable information, such as in-house offerings, renewable education, and community engagement.
With this innovative technology, CDE Lightband is leading the way in being a Trusted Energy Advisor in the Valley.
