Our team of energy experts will be helping our nation manage that transition, leaving behind no working families, businesses, or communities.”

The challenge


Looking back, 2020 will likely never be separated from the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effects worldwide. As an organization, it presented an unprecedented challenge that then prompted shifts across our industry, both large and small. 2020 was also a contentious year for our nation, underscored by recession, political volatility and a renewed focus on social justice and climate change. In short, there was a lot to navigate all at once.



With ever-evolving client needs, we remain the utility industry's top provider of turnkey energy efficiency and grid optimization programs and products. Despite the year's headwinds, our team remained resilient, contributing to reduced customer costs, carbon, and waste. At the same time, this work freed up resources for creating more jobs and investment in innovation.

We were quick to analyze our clients' needs during COVID-19 and respond to their concerns, delivering virtual audits to customers of major electric and gas utilities.

We provided small businesses with a personalized coaching experience tailored to their unique energy efficiency needs, made even more unique by the touch-free environment of the pandemic.
