About Energy Solutions

Energy Solutions, formerly known as the Energy Management Program, was established as a direct result of the energy crises of the 1970s. Due to the lack of access to fuel, the health and welfare of our country’s industry was at risk. With the support of the State Energy Office, the Energy Management Program was established to maintain the prosperity and productivity of the North Carolina’s industrial base.

The program’s key objectives included:

  • Conducting a technical assessment based on the company’s specific energy needs
  • Improving the energy efficiency of their processes
  • Evaluating and applying alternative and renewable energy sources where applicable
