OUR MISSION

It is out mission to slowly improve our environment to protect future generations and help to empower the community to make better energy consumption decisions.

It is very rewarding to see facilities staff apply knowledge we have provided and then improve upon it to ensure optimal building performance. When we troubleshoot mechanical systems, we make every effort to engage the facilities staff and guide them to discover the cause of the problems on their own.

It's very important to us that we verify the cost savings and payback of our recommendations. It's essential to engage a building's ownership, management and facility staff during the audit — without their buy-in, our reports would either sit and collect dust or, worse, be handed to a contractor without detailed specifications.

We make every effort to work collaboratively to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings.
