Housing Assistance Corporation's Energy Dept. Welcomes New Leadership

Posted by Julie Wake on Tue, Jun 12, 2012 @ 09:35 PM

HAC’s Energy & Repair Department is under new management with the recent arrival of Shad Williams, energy & repair director, and Jim Peck, technical supervisor.

Williams has been interested in energy conservation for the last 30 years and most recently worked with the U.S. Department of Energy in Ohio to bring energy procurement contracts to lower-income, multi-family property owners. “The savings that can be generated are often sufficient to pay for the improvements and still provide a rate of return,” he said.

Williams says he was excited when he learned about the opportunity to work at HAC. “I said, wow, I found someone who wants to do this on Cape Cod. I love the sense of community people have here. I feel like I’m no longer swimming upstream.”

He’s looking forward to working with HAC staff and describes as talented and innovative. “I see a lot of great opportunities to build on the legacy of HAC and to find ways to sustain that legacy,” Williams said.

Peck has been involved with energy programs in Maine, New Hampshire and on the North Shore of Massachusetts. At HAC he will assist Williams and provide technical assistance and training to HAC’s energy auditing staff. He came to HAC because “I was singularly taken with the team’s camaraderie and jovial atmosphere while working on providing assistance to others.”
Like Williams, Peck moved to Cape Cod to work for HAC. His family has been in the restaurant business on the coast of Maine for over 100 years. “Restaurants are one of the high-energy users per square foot,” he said. “There are always opportunities to save money.”

Marketing will be part of Peck’s focus. “We need to continually let people know there are opportunities for energy savings,” he said. “I’ve never met a homeowner or business owner where I couldn’t save them 25 percent. Any time you can save money, help the environment and protect our national security, that’s a win-win-win situation in my book.”
