2023 Historic Community Impact Award

Centrica Business Solutions provided a turn-key solution to achieve Coles County's long-sought historic restoration of the Courthouse's exterior. They replaced 380 windows in an 1898 building where every window required precision measurements and custom design. It transformed an icon in Coles County, Illinois, into a picture of its former glory. Centrica also played a crucial role in securing funds through the American Rescue Plan Act to advance the project.

2023 Member Award

McClure saved $95 million for the taxpayers of Pennsylvania by installing a broad range of measures that have improved recreational, educational, legislative, and infrastructure across the state of Pennsylvania. McClure was recognized for its long-standing partnership with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for numerous projects over the years in their Guaranteed Energy Savings Act program. NAESCO affiliate Lighting Services was a key partner to McClure in these project executions.
