It depends on who you ask…
- Tenants are the first to point out problems, but they’re not responsible for fixes.
- Building staff address immediate problems but lack the time and expertise to assess root causes.
- Accounting notes that the utility bills are skyrocketing but it’s not their job to find failing systems and implement solutions.
- Management sees that the portfolio could be performing better, but doesn’t see energy as a top priority.
If you’re like most of our clients, you sense that you might be overspending on energy but you’re uncertain of where and how to begin tackling the problems. Targeting the root causes isn’t easy, especially when there are so many people involved, and each one is only partially responsible. So, where do you begin?

With intelligence-driven energy management, Bright Power enables you to make energy-related decisions with confidence. By evaluating building performance with data and analytics, detailed investigation, and engineering expertise, we develop thoughtful solutions that address deep-seeded energy problems, not just their symptoms.
After the portfolio-wide energy and water benchmark, we identified tremendous water and energy savings opportunities at a 17-building, 800 unit property in New Jersey. From there, we dug deeper with a full energy audit to assess the property’s needs and develop a plan to address them. Working together with Capitol Management, we designed the projects, secured the incentives, and managed construction to ensure cohesive energy management.
