This MPA allows public authorities and political subdivisions – cities, municipalities, schools, quasi-public agencies – to award energy efficiency upgrade projects of up to $50,000 to companies listed on the MPA stock exchange without a public tender. It also allows projects between $50,000 and $600,000 to be awarded without a full public offer, if three bids are consulted by companies listed in the MPA. RISE is ready to support the energy efficiency requirements of your municipality. We have a 35-year track record of providing comprehensive efficiency services on behalf of National Grid and other energy program administrators in Rhode Island and throughout the Northeast. In addition, our resources and ability to offer these services to all important electricity and gas applications and technologies set us apart from many other regional energy service companies. Energy upgrades to existing buildings reduce electricity bills and other operating costs and make these spaces greener, healthier and more comfortable. Savings usually pay for the development costs.. . . .
