Jonathan Duncklee, president of Duncklee Cooling & Heating recently received the Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Outstanding Achievement Award. From a group of over 3000 other companies ranked as national diamond contractor dealers throughout the country, Duncklee Cooling & Heating, Inc. was recognized for outstanding achievement and was awarded for sales performance, loyalty, customer service and training. The award was presented on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at the annual Mitsubishi Cooling & Heating Diamond Contractor convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada, with over 400 people in attendance,
Jonathan Duncklee accepted the award on behalf of the 12 employees at Duncklee Cooling & Heating. In his acceptance speech at the Diamond contractor conference, Duncklee remarked "I am proud to bring this level of experience, service and knowledge to our customer base in southeastern Connecticut."
Also, a scholarship fund has been established for students interested in HVAC technical education, to be in place in the 2014-2015 school year, working with Norwich Tech, Stonington High School, and New England Tech, "to help young people interested in going into this type of career, all consistent with Les's principles, to continue his work helping others," said Jonathan Duncklee, who took over as president upon his father's death.
The Day, January 4, 2014 - 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.
Jonathan Duncklee, Duncklee Cooling & Heating in Stonington, is one of those who practice what they preach, especially about 'going green'. "Every day, we need to be environmentally conscious," he says. "And it is encouraging to see that our state government has begun providing positive incentives for both residents and businesses over the past few years."
When he heard about the state of CT's Small ZREC Program a couple of years ago, he decided to jump on it, and called Bonner Electric in Norwich. Duncklee, stays on top of the latest in energy news both personally and professionally, told Brian Bonner, "I want to do this.
"More and more businesses are trimming costs by looking deeply at how they use energy, and the state of CT was offering me a chance to reduce upfront costs and affordable financing, but I had to move fast," shares Duncklee.
Once reviewing the programs, i.e Zero Emission Renewable Energy Credit (ZREC) for solar, wind and small hydro, and decide on which would be the best investment for a commercial entity, Duncklee needed to do some investing in an engineering analysis (within a short time period) to determine load capability for the solar equipment, so that he would have a site analysis preapproval, a needs letter and cost analysis. The ZREC program creates a market-driven bidding process for projects to compete to obtain a 15-year revenue stream from the sale of RECs to the electric utilities. When this was done, the initial program he was looking at (DG program) was phased out, and he looked to do the ZREC program, which had a better return on his investment.
Although there was an initial investment to apply (with no guarantees of being selected), Duncklee was committed to proceed with the project. "The payback a few years down the road is phenomenal for a business like us," says Duncklee. "And we have worked with Bonner Electric before and trust their capabilities to work with us from the application process through to completion of the construction. Both businesses began back in the 70's, when there was a lot more manufacturing industry in eastern CT. The close relationship began with the company founders, Jonathan's father Les Duncklee and Brian's father Joseph Bonner.
"I have always believed in staying on top of the latest technological changes in cooling and heating products," says Jonathan.
"Jonathan and Brian epitomize the best in our small businesses," said State Senator Andrew Maynard (D-Stonington), Vice Chair of the Connecticut General Assembly's Environment Committee.

An undaunted Jonathan Duncklee was smiling and greeting people. "We earned this celebration, and no thunder and rain is going to keep us from enjoying ourselves," he said as he stood just inside his building, where all of the warehouse garage style doors were open.
"My father's vision has always been to provide customers with premier installation design and specialized customer service," shared Jonathan, who has been slowly guiding the business's growth over the past few years. He had worked with his father on weekends, during school vacations and over the summers learning the trade from the ground up.
The company's upward movement began the turnaround recognized this past year when Jonathan was named Employer of the Year by the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce. He credits the turnaround on the caliber of his employees, the support of his distributors and suppliers, 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.
"And I join in supporting one of my vendors, Luxaire Heating and Air Conditioning, who is extremely involved with Make-A-Wish Foundation," he said.
Jonathan has made some changes to the company's product lines for both personal and professional reasons. "I have always believed in staying on top of the latest technological changes in cooling and heating products," Jonathan said. "It is my job as a small businessman to make sure our customer service and products that we offer are the best we can possibly offer."
He has seen changes in his customer demands with an increase in air conditioning, considered a rare year-round luxury in the 1970s, and the increase in doing business on the Internet.
Also at the event were his primary distributor, ABCO HVACR Supply & Solutions with information on the latest equipment that Duncklee offers. They were a huge part of the event, helping with planning and providing support creating the gift bags. "ABCO, our distributor and supplier, is like a part of our business family, offering us supporting services with marketing, engineering support and training," Duncklee said.
Duncklee Cooling & Heating offers custom design, installation and service of residential and commercial heating and cooling HVAC systems, and provides the latest in technology available, such as ductless central air conditioning and heat pumps, hybrid/dual fuel cooling and heating systems, geothermal heat pumps, boilers, and tankless water heaters,
