I worked with the Energy Group on many multifamily projects. I found their work to be outstanding. By combining their services with our needs, they were able to approve us for substantial rebates from the utility companies. We were able to save thousands on energy costs, and help the environment too. The Energy Group always went to bat for us to make our projects successful. I highly recommend them.
