Maplewood Township is First to File Data with Sustainable Jersey Using NJy Energy Tracking System Powered by EnergySolve

The Township of Maplewood entered into a contract with EnergySolve LLC, whereby EnergySolve would provide its New Jersey Energy Tracking System (NJ ETS) to the Township. Maplewood obtained EnergySolve’s services without the need for public bidding pursuant to a Cooperative Purchasing provision in EnergySolve LLC’s contract with the State of New Jersey.
Within a month of entering into the contract, EnergySolve had entered all of Maplewood’s utility billing data for more than a calendar year into the NJ ETS and used the System to generate Maplewood’s 2012 report to Sustainable Jersey. Robert McCoy, chair of the Maplewood Environmental Advisory Committee, informed the town’s Green Team, “Amazing as it might seem, I think the Energy Tracking materials are ready and it’s not even midnight. Erin Beam with EnergySolve has been incredibly helpful in nailing down a gazillion details.”
Maplewood Deputy Mayor Kathleen M. Leventhal recently explained, “Reporting to Sustainable Jersey for 2013 will be a piece of cake. All the data has been entered each month into the Energy Tracking System from bills sent to EnergySolve by the utilities, reviewed for accuracy, approved for payment, paid, and registered as paid in Maplewood’s accounting system automatically. In August of this year they will literally only have to push a button to generate the annual report for Sustainable Jersey.”
Mr. S. Lynn Sutcliffe, CEO of EnergySolve commented on the cost of the New Jersey Energy Tracking System as follows, “The NJ ETS has not cost Maplewood a thing because of the cost savings from electronically paying bills. In fact, a recent study shows the system could have saved Maplewood about $16 for every bill paid through the system.”
Here is what Sustainable Jersey says about the NJ ETS on its website:
“NJ ETS is an energy tracking system and utility accounting system that assists facility managers in measuring energy and water consumption and costs. The contracted service provider receives a municipality’s bills, enters all the information in a searchable database, scans the bill image, conducts a thorough validation analysis, advises the customer of any irregularities that it cannot resolve with the utility, and then pays the bill before it is due to avoid any late fees or penalties. In addition to eliminating many of the administrative costs associated with utility bills, NJ ETS facilitates the benchmarking of the municipal building portfolio while also saving considerable money for the municipality. Since NJ ETS already has a cooperative purchasing agreement with the State of New Jersey, governmental entities can sign up to use this service without having to go out for a separate competitive bid.”
