Independent. Objective. Diligent.
At E/S3 our job is to make your job easier by bringing an experienced resource to your team for objective assistance in developing and implementing a wide range of energy efficiency, sustainability, performance assurance or other facility programs and projects that are customized for your needs.
We also help you look out for your interests with independent support throughout the course of energy performance contract projects to ensure you get the results you need and maintain the proper balance in relationships with energy services companies.
In the process we'll find ways to save you money.
Our focus is on public institutions. Since the beginning we have been providing assistance and protecting the interests of our owner clients through:
We believe our ability to fully represent the interests of our owner clients requires independence from energy service companies and other energy-related firms, engineering design firms, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, construction contractors, and mechanical service companies. In addition, we have no family members employed by these types of firms.
To ensure there is no conflict of interest, E/S3 is not affiliated with any industry groups that promote a particular way to implement projects. This leaves us free to work on your behalf without the pressure to endorse a particular contracting method.
