ABOUT US

Our History

Founded in 1994, Franklin Energy has been delivering turnkey energy efficiency and energy management programs across the U.S. and Canada for nearly three decades. We started by helping utilities implement energy efficiency programs in the commercial and industrial market, and we grew from there, expanding into serving clients across a wide variety of sectors including residential, multifamily, agricultural, telecommunications, and many more.

With every new partnership and company that has been added to the team over the years, from AM Conservation to GoodCents to Cultivate Energy Optimization, and more, we have deepened our insights and grown our capabilities to better meet the unique needs of our clients.

Our Passion


As a child, founder Paul Schueller decided he wanted to make a difference in building a clean energy future—and years later, we’re still committed to that same goal.


Led by a team of industry veterans, our experts are passionate, ambitious, and dedicated to driving real change. We’re also committed to growing the energy industry as a whole, which is why we prioritize the creation of green career opportunities and workforce development, especially in traditionally underserved communities. 

Above all, we believe our people are our most important asset. Regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, or any other differences among us, every person’s unique identity deserves to be celebrated. Within both our own employees as well as our partner network, we prioritize intentional inclusivity. Our differences make us stronger as a whole, and it’s through a variety of viewpoints that we can continue innovating and moving forward.

We believe in a brighter future where cities are electrified, energy and water are affordable for everyone, and career opportunities abound.
