Bright Power is pleased to announce the opening of its first satellite office, located in Oakland, CA. In late 2014, Bright Power closed a $5 million round of fundraising from WindSail Capital Group, a portion of which will be allocated to the opening of this new office.
This expansion better situates Bright Power to help its large and quickly growing client base of national owners and operators act on opportunities found through its database of multifamily building energy and water usage, the largest in the nation. “On our tenth anniversary, we are excited to put down roots on the West Coast! We have had clients there for many years, and recognize that we have a lot to offer in helping address the unique energy and water challenges that building owners face there. Now we are more ready than ever to dive into the opportunities that such a forward-thinking state like California can offer,” said Bright Power CEO and President, Jeff Perlman.
Spearheading the opening of Bright Power’s West Coast office will be former Vice President of Engineering, Greg Sherman, who will now carry the title Vice President of Western Region. Sherman set up shop in the Bay Area earlier this year. “California’s energy and water concerns are well known yet still getting worse. It became abundantly clear that this is a market that could utilize our services and we are excited to make an even greater impact in the buildings of our West Coast clients,” said Sherman who will focus on building partnerships with owners, managers, developers, architects, local government agencies and other key stakeholders.
Bright Power headquarters will remain in New York City as the West Coast office opens its doors. For more information on Bright Power’s national expansion please contact Greg Sherman. Contact information can be found on Bright Power’s website.
