LOWELL, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2013) - TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) has been awarded a contract to continue its implementation of the California Multi-family New Homes (CMFNH) energy efficiency program through 2014.

The $5.5 million contract was awarded by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). With the ultimate goal of transforming the multi-family new construction market in California and helping to achieve California's net zero goals, TRC will help multi-family new construction developers in central and northern California achieve greater energy savings through design.

"CMFNH's energy efficiency program serves as a model for its far-reaching, long-term effectiveness," said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TRC. "We look forward to providing continued support that helps achieve deep energy savings in new multi-family homes and greenhouse gas reductions for the environment."

TRC's energy efficiency experts have supported the CMFNH program since 2006, delivering sustainable solutions with positive environmental and financial impacts to the residents of California. In the next three years, CMFNH expects at least 8,500 dwelling units to complete construction that are currently enrolled in the program. Collectively, the units are expected to receive more than $3.4 million in incentives as a reward for their expected energy savings. 

From inception to date, CMFNH has saved 3.7 million kWh, 3,300 kW, and 731,000 therms in installed energy savings. It has distributed more than four million dollars in incentives to 226 projects that achieve an average of 26 percent better than the Title 24 Standards. The program promotes changes such as optimized building operations, minimized building loads, and improved system efficiencies. It is funded by California utility customers and administered by PG&E under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.
