Better Building

Using our proprietary platform we collect and utilize 1,000x more in-building data than traditional efficiency firms. This lets us deliver large savings for clients, even in small or already efficient buildings.

Better Planet

We believe the best way to help the planet is by finding solutions that create financial benefits for our clients - our process makes it profitable for buildings to become carbon neutral.

Better Bottom Line

Financial returns are our priority - Clients set their financial goals and we deliver the specified returns. Most clients receive a mid-teen return, and if desired contracts can be structured to save money within the first year.

    Our company is committed to providing tenants with operationally efficient facilities and we are proud to have partnered with Carbon Lighthouse to provide economic benefits to both the tenants and owner. Carbon Lighthouse understood our sustainability goals and utilized their extensive knowledge in the energy field to identify cost effective solutions for us. We are excited to have Carbon Lighthouse review other properties we manage to reduce utility costs and carbon usage.

    I gave Carbon Lighthouse a complex and ill defined problem. They helped me define the key variables and built a model that we used to work out a creative Solution. Their work was clear, concise, and convincing. I recommend Carbon Lighthouse without reservation.

    Carbon Lighthouse was extremely helpful in analyzing our buildings to come up with the most cost-effective upgrades to improve energy efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. We expect an excellent return on our investment in equipment upgrades and a new photovoltaic system.

    I was impressed by both the quality of Carbon Lighthouse’s staff and their strong enthusiasm for sustainability. They provided professional, competitive energy services, and took care of our city-mandated ASHRAE energy audit as well as other energy monitoring tasks.

    It was a pleasure working with Carbon Lighthouse. They were very friendly, easy to work with, sincere, and understanding. Like a family. Now our classrooms have good light and we’re going to save a lot of energy. And I learned a lot, too.

  • Jeremy Cole, Facilities Manager

    Like so many Facility Managers, I have my hands full with the day-to-day demands of maintaining a facility, so the prospect of taking on a project as large as eradicating our carbon footprint was daunting. Fortunately, Carbon Lighthouse took the bulk of the work onto their shoulders, so that the impact on my time was minimal. What a pleasant surprise it was to find that the process was painless, efficient and remarkably swift. I would happily recommend them to anyone interested in conservation.
