Bethesda Systems becomes Pepco Trade Ally

BETHESDA, Md.—On October 31, Bethesda Systems received news of its official acceptance in becoming a Pepco Trade Ally.

A Pepco trade ally is a technical partner to Washington, D.C.’s prime utilities provider, Pepco. As a trade ally, Bethesda Systems will be able to assist Pepco customers with increasing awareness of, and meeting their energy efficiency goals. In addition, as a trade ally, Bethesda systems acts as an advisor to Maryland Pepco customers and instructs and applies ways customers can take advantage of the energy saving incentives Pepco offers.

Catering to both residential and commercial projects, Bethesda Systems offers a multitude of different products and services to help customers throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia cut down on energy loads and save on energy bills.

The integrators are well-versed in energy-saving practices that involve energy automation systems, installing LED lighting, and offering energy storage products.

A recent green project Bethesda Systems performed was for local Bethesda sports bar, Caddies on Cordell. Bethesda Systems performed an LED retrofit for the bar. Before the retrofit, Caddies went through 10–15 incandescent bulbs per week, and their lights were kept on for at least 14 hours per day.

An incandescent light bulb consumes almost five times the amount of energy than an LED light bulb. An incandescent also burns out over 10 times faster than an LED bulb.

The incandescent light bulbs Caddies used before the retrofit constantly burned out. The solution Bethesda Systems provided them yielded the business an 82% reduction in energy consumption through lighting, saving the bar $5,000 per year in energy savings.

As an official Pepco Trade Ally for Maryland Pepco customers, Bethesda Systems can continue offering its services, guaranteeing quality work, as the integrators will have full, instant access to the latest news on Pepco incentives, as well as the latest energy efficient practices to help minimize its customers carbon footprints, and maximize energy and monetary savings.
