Our Partners and Opportunities to Partner


From its earliest days, ECA has worked to develop a comprehensive solution to the energy needs of Philadelphians. This requires strong partnerships with a broad range of stakeholders.  Cities rarely control many of the resources needed to address the energy problems of its citizens, however local municipalities end up holding the bag when things go wrong.  Public private partnerships are essential to developing lasting solutions to low income energy problems.

Our partners include local, state and federal government, community based organizations, utilities, manufacturers, colleges, universities, school districts, contractors, lenders, nonprofits, and corporations.

Likewise our Training Center is enmeshed in partnerships. In fact our Training Center is developing a strong partnership or pipeline of technical training in the Philadelphia area which leads from high school/GED to technical training, Apprenticeships and Associates Degree, and eventually to a four-year degree program. 

Our partners are absolutely vital to our work and our collective success. Thank you to all our partners for working with us to build a more sustainable future.

Technical Assistance:

ECA can provide technical assistance and training (T&TA) to assist other cities and municipalities to develop their own training programs, or to adapt our comprehensive low income energy services model to their own local needs. We enjoy working to build local capacity to solve problems in the context of the local climate, housing conditions, energy mix and workforce characteristics. Our T&TA partnerships have included Puerto Rico, Pittsburg and Baltimore. If you are interested in partnering with ECA, please contact Thomas Flaherty at thomasf@ecasavesenergy.org or 215 609 1054.
