Stonington - Jonathan Duncklee ...

Stonington - Jonathan Duncklee admits that Connecticut's Zero Emissions Renewable Energy Credit Program may not be for everyone, but with patience and perseverance and an eye on the future, his heating and cooling business has been able to save between $200 and $500 a month on energy costs, he said.

The so-called Small ZREC Program used by Duncklee offers businesses served by Connecticut Light & Power Co. or United Illuminating Co. the chance to go solar while saving money on electricity costs. What's more, the program, overseen by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, guarantees that excess clean-power output can be sold back to the grid, turning the money drain that businesses traditionally see in energy costs into a potential money maker.
"I get paid for every (kilowatt) hour produced," Duncklee said.
Still, Duncklee, vice president of Duncklee Cooling & Heating, admits to not yet seeing a dime because of all the paperwork before the program is fully up and running.
"I'm at the cutting edge, so we're kind of educating each other," he said of the process. "It's so complex."
Duncklee, who got involved in the first year of the program, had Bonner Electric of Norwich install an 80-foot by 20-foot photovoltaic solar array on the roof of his Taugwonk Road business last spring after being approved for the program earlier in the year.
The full payback for his initial investment in the solar array, taking into account federal tax credits, is five years, he said, and CL&P is contractually committed to buying the energy he produces for 15 years.
"You're getting a 15-year payment stream," Duncklee said. "I sell high-efficiency products. I might as well be efficient and clean with my own business."
Duncklee said his last monthly electrical bill was for $77, far less than many residential customers pay. He added that his cost savings vary depending on the time of the year, estimating that during the winter it might be only $200 but during the sunnier months it could be up to $500.

...
"We have had to keep up with technology over time," Duncklee said.
Duncklee was among the first to embrace ductless heating and cooling, and the company is looking to install a solar-electric system in its own 6,400-square-foot facility off Taugwonk Road.
Duncklee Cooling & Heating, which was known as L.H. Duncklee Refrigeration Inc. in 1973 when Jonathan's father Les launched his own company, has seen its share of changes over the years. Originally focused mostly on commercial installation, with a staff that once numbered close to 40, the family-run business now includes only about a dozen employees while being devoted mostly to residential customers, though Duncklee does have a fair share of commercial and industrial work as well.
When long-time manufacturers started to leave the region in the 1980s and 1990s, the family had to make a dramatic shift in its business, Duncklee said.
Duncklee, vice president of the company, worked with his father on weekends, during school vacations and over the summer learning the trade from the ground up. He said there was no official handoff of the ownership mantle, but he slowly took the reins over the years and Les, who still works at the company, seemed happy to let go.
"He allowed me to make changes," Duncklee said.
...
Duncklee credits the turnaround on the caliber of his employees and his strong connection to the community. He has been involved on a variety of boards such as Big Brothers-Big Sisters and with projects such as the Hygienic Art Park in New London and Coogan Farm in Mystic.
"I try to be very visible," Duncklee said. "It does pay dividends when you're slow."
Duncklee's ability to quickly incorporate new technology into his heating and cooling business has paid dividends as well. At the invitation of suppliers, he visited Japan in April 2012 and Korea in October 2012, coming home with a new respect for the graciousness of his hosts.
Duncklee said he always seeks out American products first, but some technological advances are coming from overseas these days, and he must keep up with them to stay competitive and provide customers the best products available.
"If you don't change, you're out of business - no doubt about it," he said.
One change Duncklee has noted in his business is the emphasis, particularly in high-end homes, on air conditioning. While central air was almost unheard of in the 1970s, it has become a must-have today, he said, and installations occur year-round, not just in the warmer months.
Another big change has been the Internet, and Duncklee has been ahead of the curve there as well, having recently developed a mobile-friendly site in recognition that many people find heating and cooling technicians through their iPhones and other similar devices.
"We get a tremendous amount of business through the Internet," Duncklee said.
And while the Internet has been seen as a negative for some types of businesses, Duncklee said it has made his job easier.
"I love an educated buyer," he said. "It's a relief."

Jonathan Duncklee, Duncklee Cooling & Heating Receives Employer of the Year Award
...
Jonathan Duncklee of Duncklee Cooling and Heating in Stonington, CT, received the Edward O. McCabe 2012 Employer of the Year at the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce Silent Auction and Annual Dinner held in December. This recognition comes to Jonathan as a result of his outstanding relationship with his employees, and his dedication as a leader both within his company and his community. Jonathan’s recognition as Employer of the Year award places him in good company, as the 9th recipient of this recognition, named after the first Employer of the Year Award recipient Edward O. McCabe.
...
The Duncklee employee who nominated Jonathan describes him as “everything a boss should be,†and that “he has shown compassion, caring and strength, as a man and as our leader.†While Jonathan has cared for his staff’s well being, he has also been extremely active in his community, supporting organizations such as Hygienic Art, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Garde Arts Center, the Eugene O’Neill Theater, MASH, Hospice of SECT and most recently The Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center’s Campaign to Preserve Coogan Farm.Â
What is it about Jonathan Duncklee and his vision of doing business that has led him to this recognition? Jonathan’s dedication to his company staff and his community shows his commitment as a businessman and leader. The company, where he serves as Vice President, has had its share of economic highs and lows over the past 39 years, but under his guidance, the staff has grown from eight employees to as many as 35. Staff longevity can also reflect the company vision and culture, with five employees being with the company over ten years; and one gentleman has been with the company for 33 years.Â
The Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce has felt as part of their mission to support its Chamber membership with annual recognition for accomplishments within the community that they live and work in. Adding the Employer of the Year category to the roster that include Volunteers of the Year and Community Service Awards, adds that element that is critical to ‘good business’; how a business leader treats his or her staff as part of the company culture. Company culture is the personality of a company and defines what a company, from an employee perspective, is like to work for. Company culture includes the company mission, values, ethics, expectations, goals, and work environment. Jonathan Duncklee takes his company culture seriously, and his staff’s attitude reflects that, in essence telling him “thank you,†by nominating him for this award.
