Working together with you
Every organization has unique goals and unique challenges associated with navigating through today’s fast-changing energy landscape. When it comes approaching energy efficiency retrofits, “why” is most often a given (your bottom line), but the “what, where, when and how” can be problematic, questions that too often lead toward the worst strategy of all: doing nothing.
Greatest value at lowest cost – here’s how to start
Together, Bill and his team have the experience and expertise – a proven track record of superior solution delivery and unparalleled customer service – to help you figure out and implement your energy strategy.
A trusted process
Through a trusted, step-by-step, turnkey project management approach, you can count on greatest value at lowest cost, solutions that are not just optimal at the time of implementation, but also help position your organization for the future, as new technology develops, market and utility dynamics change, and the needs of your organization evolve.

ECON 101 principles
An experienced entrepreneur, Jim was an early member of iUniverse and before that worked as an editor in higher education publishing, working with Paul Samuelson and William D. Nordhaus on their classic ECON 101 textbook. Paul Samuelson won the second Nobel prize awarded in Economic Sciences while Bill Nordhaus won the 2018 Nobel Prize for “for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”
Malcolm Gladwell famously popularized the concept of the "10,000-Hour Rule” – that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to command a craft.
Command of craft and best practices
Decades of experience, deep knowledge of facility retrofit best-practices, and national leadership in the assessment and delivery of ROI-focused energy efficient lighting solutions are important elements to be considered when choosing a Trusted Partner, who best to assist with qualification, quantification and implementation.
Today’s complex energy landscape presents greater challenges and opportunities than at any time since the beginning of the Industrial Age, with fundamental changes underway involving clean energy generation, delivery and storage, the movement toward a more connected and optimized energy system.
New technologies, most notably Solid-State Lighting, better known as LEDs, have become increasingly more powerful, more energy efficient and cost-effective, driving new bottom-line considerations. We work closely with our clients and partners to put command of craft and best practices to work.
Your Place to Start
We offer our clients a Trusted Partner, a proven methodology and track record of success in helping clients to best meet operational needs while maximizing energy performance in support of bottom-line goals that, increasingly, are intertwined with the triple bottom line goals of people, planet and profits.
