Service Provider Manuals Updates

The “Eligibility” sections of the Service Provider Manuals have been updated. Past participants (as determined by account number) who had a project verified in 2017 or earlier are eligible to submit a new application now. This only applies if the new application has a similar scope of work (e.g. ECMs, systems, areas) as the previous project. An application with a new scope of work is eligible to participate under RCx Flex/MBCx at any time. Please review the latest versions located on the 2021 Resources page of the Service Provider Portal.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Nexant main point of contact.

RCx Open Discussion Sessions

We’ve successfully rolled out our new RCx Open Discussion sessions. The intention is to allow you to submit any offering-related questions that you may have for Nexant. In this open format, we’ll address various questions and topics, as well as provide guidance in any way we can.

Our first four sessions were extremely successful, with 70 total attendees. Questions ranged from how to best utilize the available marketing materials, to understanding who the Outreach Service Providers are and what they mean to RCx. You can reference the notes from previous sessions here.

Our next session is scheduled for Thursday, May 20, 2021. If you have not previously registered for the entire Open Discussion Session Series, keep an eye out for an invitation coming soon to register.

Requirement Reminder: Measure-Level Implementation Dates

The following requirement has been added to section two (2) of the M&V Guidelines:

Service Providers must identify the final implementation date for each measure in order to aid in M&V data gathering efforts. The date should occur after all fine-tuning and iterations of the measure have been completed.

Please note that this new date requirement applies to Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 measures, and will be included in the verification table found in the Measure Recommendation tab of the report template.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Project Coordinator.

2021 Savings Update


As of April 26, 2021, you and your fellow Service Providers have verified approximately 4.2 GWh in savings.
