Managing Energy from the Start
Bright Power saves developers and owners time and money by ensuring that energy efficiency and renewable energy options are integrated into their buildings from the beginning. We work with architects and design teams to make sure energy systems are sized appropriately, on-site generation and solar energy are considered, and all related construction tasks are done right the first time.
Our New Construction team provides design consulting, energy modeling, Passive House consulting, LEED, Enterprise Green Communities and other green certification services for both ground-up developments and gut rehabilitations.

Our design team models the cost and impact of a variety of energy systems, identifying tradeoffs and facilitating informed decisions.
In the example shown, we compared the operating costs for seven different heating strategies, from electric baseboard on the left to Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) on the right, which enabled project managers to decide with confidence in this critical design area.
Green Buildings & Commissioning
Throughout the construction and close-out phase, we work closely with the General Contractor and HVAC subcontractors to ensure that equipment is installed correctly and the start-up and operation of the equipment match the design. We are on site for key points in the construction process to ensure that systems and materials get installed properly. We diagnose and resolve any problems before they become bigger issues that arise after occupancy.
