Efficiency Connection
Did You Know...
LEDs don't feel hot to the touch like other light sources. Incandescent bulbs produce heat that is felt in the beam of light, much like the heat that is felt from sunlight. The light from LEDs does not create additional heat in a room.


Program Manual

The TNMP Retail Electric Provider (REP) Programs are market transformation programs with multiple energy efficiency offers (or measures) that participating REPs can offer directly to their residential customers.


CoolSaver is an innovative air conditioning tune-up service that allows contractors to accurately identify A/C and heat pump system inefficiencies and then correct each system’s specific problems. This Program is designed to reduce the customer’s upfront cost of system diagnosis and correction. It also provides participating contractors with training on best practices and discounts on high quality diagnostic tools.

CoolSaver A/C Tune-Up Benefits

  • A CoolSaver A/C Tune-up can improve the cooling output and efficiency of your air conditioning unit by up to 27 percent (actual savings may vary).
  • A CoolSaver Tune-up may:
    • Increase energy efficiency
    • Improve indoor cooling
    • Improve humidity control
  • The CoolSaver Program offers A/C tune-ups at no cost to customers in TNMP service territory —valued at more than $150
  • During the tune-up, the technician may provide additional recommendations to improve your A/C’s efficiency and performance


Efficiency Connection offers discounted Light-Emitting Diodes (LED) lamps, through an online marketplace to residential customers of participating REPs. Through the program’s third party vendor or online retailer, LED lamps are delivered directly to qualifying residential customers. Participating REPs market the energy saving measures and services to their residential customers in the TNMP service territory.

Efficiency Connection LED Benefits

  • Energy Savings - LEDs require significantly less electricity than traditional incandescent bulbs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, replacing your 60-watt incandescent with 12-watt LEDs will reduce your per-bulb electricity costs by about 70 to 80 percent.
  • Versatility - All of the LEDs offered by Efficiency Connection are dimmable models, making them suitable for living rooms, lounges and other areas where you’d like greater control over light levels.
  • Lifespan - According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a high-power white LED can last for 35,000 to 50,000 hours – that’s approximately 2 to 7 times longer than a CFL and 25 to 45 times longer than a traditional incandescent.
  • Light Quality - LED lights turn on instantly, without the flicker that may occur when fluorescent lights power up.
  • Cost - You’ll save up to 40 percent on ENERGY STAR® certified LED light bulbs on the Efficiency Connection site.

In order to participate in CoolSaver or Efficiency Connection, a customer must reside in a residential dwelling located within TNMP’s footprint (see the program manual for participation eligibility details). The intent of the program is to provide the above offer through participating REPs.
