Worcester Chamber CEO Uses TV Platform to Encourage Energy Savings

Tim Murray, the Worcester Regional Chamber CEO (and former Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts) recently shined his spotlight on how the chamber’s 2,300 member businesses can save money with energy efficiency.

Speaking on the TV program, Chamber Exchange, on Charter TV3, Murray noted that energy costs are among the top three issues that member businesses care about in New England.

While welcoming the rise in renewable energy, Murray also noted: “Often, one of the best things you can do is be more efficient with the energy you use.”

Murray interviewed Rick Galipeau, president of World Energy Efficiency Services, an energy services company with offices in Massachusetts and Connecticut, who described the business investment in efficiency as a “no brainer.”

Here’s how it works:

  • World Energy provides a free energy assessment as part of the Mass Save program and identifies opportunities to cut down on energy waste.
  • The utility will pay up to 70% of the cost of the project and finance the balance at 0% interest for 2 years.
  • For most companies this means no out of pocket costs and positive cash flow by making a couple of minor changes.
