National Refrigeration, a Warwick-based contracting company, was honored recently during the annual Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) New England Golf Tournament held in Stow, Mass. The firm was recognized with a COOL SMART award for excellence in the installation of energy efficient air conditioning systems in 2012.
COOL SMART is a high efficiency air conditioning rebate program for residential customers of National Grid, NSTAR Electric, Unitil, Western Massachusetts Electric Company and Cape Light Compact. These organizations sponsor the awards and the tournament to recognize contractors in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for outstanding service and an ongoing commitment to energy efficiency. The COOL SMART program was launched in 2004 and promotes the purchase and verified quality installation of ENERGY STAR®-qualified central air conditioning systems. The awards are based on leadership, quality installations and active program participation.
National Grid Residential Program Manager Rebecca Rundle attended the tournament for the first time this year. She said, “I am impressed by the skill and the commitment these contractors show to the quality installation of equipment. Congratulations to National Refrigeration and to all of the winners. By installing A/C systems that use much less energy, they are doing a great service for the environment and helping their customers save money on energy bills.”
Conservation Services Group, a Westborough, Mass.-based residential energy services firm, is the implementation contractor for COOL SMART on behalf of National Grid, NSTAR Electric, Western Massachusetts Electric Co., Unitil and Cape Light Compact.
