Commercial & Industrial

The Energy Group (TEG) team has a combined two hundred years’ experience helping businesses and operations reduce demand and lower energy costs with energy management strategies. On average commercial buildings waste one third of their energy, providing ample opportunity to lower energy costs. We apply a robust energy management process, tailored for each operation, which starts with benchmarking and ends with a new culture primed for ongoing success.


Our energy analysts evaluate performance and pool resources in order to provide comprehensive feedback. We provide economic analysis for each opportunity, empowering leadership to take calculated action and translate savings into profits. Our team can provide benchmark support or mobilize internal staff so that all improvements are measured and verified after implementation. This ensures businesses realize projected savings and reach optimal performance.


Furthermore, our process can help owners mitigate energy-related risks. A proactive energy management program can help owners avoid devastating hits caused by fuel cost volatility, demand charges for spikes in electric use, and shutdown-causing blackouts.

Energy Sales and Use Tax Exemption

Many commercial, industrial, and agricultural processes are eligible for sales and use tax exemption on electricity and fuel used for processing. Businesses may also be eligible for a refund for up to three years in overpaid sales and use tax. This can yield significant cost savings. Our energy audit determines any exemption and our team coordinates with service providers and the state revenue office on behalf of the customer.

Small Businesses

Small business owners face unique challenges in terms of money management. With that in mind, our team identifies attainable energy and cost saving improvements that improve financial performance. Once we have fully vetted each option, our team can assist with implementation by acting as an unbiased project manager. We provide peace of mind so business owners won’t be distracted from doing what they love.

New Construction

Markets increasingly are demanding energy efficient, green buildings. There’s no question that high performing buildings have a competitive edge. They offer lower operational costs and better working environments for tenants. Our team helps developers and architects select systems that minimize operational energy costs by performing energy modeling with building simulation software. By integrating energy efficiency during the design phase, owners can increase competitiveness and get ahead of the curve. In addition we offer construction project management for enhanced control and comprehensive management of the process.
