Platform Overview

Our integrated software + financial model maximizes your portfolio income. As energy savings are generated, we pay you monthly in the form of a rent check, while tenants enjoy the benefits of lower OpEx and modernized buildings

Rapidly Reduce OpEx

Our software analyzes building data to make it easy for landlords to budget, prioritize and execute building improvement projects that reduce OpEx.

Example

A Building Management System may think its turning all the air handlers off at night, but our data shows 2 of the air handlers are actually running 24/7.

The software then provides a scope of work for the site team to pass to their controls contractor, costing $2.5k in fixes while unlocking $15k per year in savings.

We pay you rent, every month, unlocking returns from NNN and Modified Gross Leases.

Our integrated financial product turns operating expense reductions into new revenue. We provide recurring income to building owners in exchange for non-exclusive access to mechanical spaces access plus system data to track energy savings.
