1. How much will it cost to evaluate our company?


Initially nothing!! We will come to your facility, free of charge, and perform an initial evaluation of your facility to lower energy costs. We will place your unique parameters into our modeling software to obtain an initial estimate of potential energy cost savings. This will give you the ability to determine if an energy cost savings project will meet your expectations.

Our next step is to complete a detailed engineering design. This phase is called 'Measure Phase'. There is a small fee for this step. Most of these fees are third party fees to cover auditing and renting sophisticated measurement meters for power quality. The cost depends on your facility and the data previously collected during our free walkthrough. Typically it would be less than average monthly energy bill.

Please see 'Our Approach' tab for more information.

 

 

 

 

2. How much will a new energy saving system cost?


Our engineering staff prides itself on our systematic approach to addressing your energy needs and savings targets. We design our systems within your financial and saving constraints. A typical project may provide a payback in 2 to 3 years with ROIs of 30% to 50%. It would be 3-5 years with energy generation like Solar PV and Wind.
 

 

 

 

3. What technologies do you use to lower energy costs?


We design our complete systems using many different technologies. What types of technology we select depends on your facility's environment. We are continously adding newer technologies to our solution portfolio. We let your environment dictate the types of technologies we use. Based on our design and risk-tolerence, we recommend technologies that improve efficiencies for thermal envelope, equipment, air-conditioning, refrigeration, and lighting. After our 'Measure' phase we will know which technologies will be optimal for your facility.
 

 

 

 

4. In what types of industries have you installed your energy savings products?


All types: Industrial, Commercial and nursery. Customer references can be provided upon request.
What is important is to understand your unique environment and operating conditions so we can design an approach that works best for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. We already have Power Factor Correction, can we still experience energy costs savings?


Absolutely. Although we assess Power Quality, this is not our prime focus. We take wholestic approach to reduce customer's energy footprint. Power Factor is a small consideration.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. How are we different from other energy cost saving companies?


We take a wholestic approach to your facility and apply technologies that maximize your savings while minimizing your expense. Most companies are vertically integrated. They have focus on certain technology (Lighting, Solar, Hvac ..etc). Our focus is to maximize the savings to our customers using the breadth of technologies and strong partnership with industry experts to provide the best value.
Our goal is to improve the cash-flow for the company.

 

 

 

 

 

7. Can we finance this project from savings?


Absolutely. We will help you finance the project. Given that the returns are 20-30% on average, the will be an immediate positive cash-flow for the customers.

 

 

 

 

 

8. What is the effect of your technologies on equipment downtime and equipment operation?


Minimal. We will work with the facility managers around the work schedule to minmize the impact to the ongoing operations. Since every customer is different, the impact will need to be analyzed during the implementation phase.
 

 

 

 

 

9. How do you prove that your systems are savings money?


Measurement and verification is the most important engineering work that we conduct. We work closely with our customers to establish a measurement and verification protocol for your unique facility. Our methodology is drawn from and complies with the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). The IPMVP was established by a network of energy professional and national organizations from over 25 countries for the purpose of standardizing the methods by which energy conservation projects are measured and verified. 
 

 

 

 

10. We have a Co-generation system on site; can you still lower our energy costs?


Yes, our technologies improve the efficiency of your distribution system and thus would allow you to use less electricity from the power company or allow you to sell more back to the power company.
