Business Services

Whether you rent or own your facilities, we help you lower your operating costs and attract customers.

Most businesses don’t have the resources or time to baseline resource use, apply for government and utility grants, rebates and tax breaks, or submit required post-implementation improvement reports.

Your business can reduce operational costs of electricity, water and gas use through eligible retrofits.

We’ll help you get the best return on your investment by getting government rebates to update equipment; improve insulation, air sealing, and ventilation; and add solar power generation.

By investing in these improvements, you’ll attract customers and improve employee satisfaction.

We provide hourly or fixed price services, depending on our customers’ needs.
