MLGW looking for contractors for new federal energy assistance program
March 8, 2010
(March 8, 2010) - Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division is seeking contractors to complete energy efficiency home improvement projects such as HVAC unit repair/replacement, window and door replacement, water heating replacement and insulation and air sealing measures as part of its new Home Energy Efficiency Grant Program.

"In an economy where new building has slowed, this is a terrific opportunity for local qualified contractors to do some work that not only is profitable, it helps make the homes of Memphis more energy efficient," said MLGW Jerry Collins, President and CEO.

Complete contractor qualifications are available at mlgw.com/energygrant.

All contractors interested in participating must attend a mandatory orientation meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 24, at the City of Memphis Council Chambers, 1st Floor, City Hall, 125 North Main Street. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 9:00 A.M. To pre-register for the event, e-mail energysmart@mlgw.org with the following information: name of company, company representative, business address, phone number, fax number and e-mail.

This project is funded by ARRA funds pursuant to an agreement with the Department of Energy and City of Memphis.

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 420,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County. A January 2010 survey showed that MLGW had the fifth lowest electric rates in the nation.
