(NASHVILLE, TN) — The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has made Nashville’s Energy Automation Systems, Inc. a part of the TVA Preferred Partners Network, which means EASI is among a group of commercial and industrial organizations working with TVA to improve energy efficiency across the TVA network.

The network spans clients in 7 States, including most all of Tennessee and parts of Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia. Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) develops and installs energy-saving technologies used by thousands of customers around the World.

“Preferred Partners Network members have the ability not speculative ability, but proven – to help businesses, utilities, governments and other clients reduce their energy use and lower their energy bills,” said Dr. Paul Bleiweis, EASI’s chief executive officer.

“EASI has accomplished two things for our customers by becoming a TVA Preferred Partners Network member: it affirms our standing as a company providing customers with energy savings and it gives EAS! access to TVA market research, incentives, training and technica! assistance,” Bleiweis added. TVA’s Preferred Partners Network is comprised of organizations that have proven their ability to increase energy efficiency.

In its more than 35-year history, EASI technologies have enabled customers to reduce their energy consumption and costs by up to 30 percent. EASI technical staff members will undergo training programs through TVA.

EASI customers will benefit from technical information to which EASI will have access, as well as be eligible for rebates and preferred utility rates because of EASI’s Preferred Partners Network status.

To achieve Preferred Partners Network status, TVA officials:

  • Visited EASI to review its engineering processes, methodologies and processes
  • Interviewed EASI clients to assess EASI’s performance in reducing their energy usage and costs
  • Interviewed EASI officials and employees about the company’s model for conducting business

EASI provides energy efficiency technologies and consulting in a range of energy conservation measures for large industrial and commercial facilities. Typical customers are large, multi-site manufacturing companies, who often engage EASI over a period of years to implement projects at multiple facilities.


(NASHVILLE, TN) — A 22-percent energy savings and faster-than-required payback on the energy savings investment for Freeman-Webb’s Nashville House, a 150,000-square foot office building in the Metro Center Business District, has earned Hendersonville-based Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) and Freeman-Webb an award for energy savings best practices.

The Association of Energy Engineers – Middle Tennessee Chapter, and Middle Tennessee State University’s Center for Energy Efficiency recognized EASI and Freeman-Webb with the 2012 Energy Management Recognition Award.

Freeman-Webb wanted at least a 21 percent annual energy savings and a 36-month payback period on its energy savings investment for Nashville House. EASI topped those requirements by designing and installing a system that reached energy savings of over 22 percent and less than a 32-month payback period.

“To be recognized for our energy-saving technologies from highly regarded professionals in our area in the energy conservation field is gratifying to all of us at EASI,” said Paul Bleiweis, EASI president and chief executive officer.

“Efficient, economical, and effective energy savings processes have never been more important, and we’re proud to be a leader in this field,” Bleiweis said.

Bradley A. Jones, building facilities director for Freeman Webb properties, said EASI, “I chose EASI for this project because of its long history of success in designing, manufacturing, and installing electric energy conservation systems in a variety of commercial and industrial businesses,” said Jones. “The numbers, and this prestigious award, speak to our joint success.”

“Our energy-saving technologies reduce kilowatt hours and improve the quality of the power used in a building,” said Bleiweis, who earned a doctorate degree in nuclear science and engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). “We’re able to do our work without interrupting or interfering with a company’s operations.
