This is How We Work

We Analyze

Using hundreds of sensors to capture massive new datasets, we establish your building’s baseline energy consumption and potential performance.

We Solve

To find hidden inefficiencies that other technologies can’t detect, we model hundreds of thousands of potential actions, adding solar when possible

We Manage

Because energy performance drift is inevitable, our ongoing service detects and resolves new issues to ensure guaranteed dollars — and eliminate risk.

Here’s how we convert building energy into profit.

  1. Data Collection & Analytics
  2. Implementation  
  3. Energy Performance Management

Our proprietary energy optimization technology guarantees real results.

The Carbon Lighthouse Unified Engineering System (CLUES) gives our engineers deep insights into the complexities of your building’s energy use. Others use generic models or rough estimates that can’t capture a building’s unique, ever-changing dynamics. But CLUES crunches real building data with statistical and financial models, enabling us to predict results with incredible accuracy while discovering and delivering maximum savings.

We install 50-300 sensors per building to gather more building-specific data than any other energy service.

To accurately model your building, we analyze an average of 15 distinct types of data.

We model 100s of 1000s equipment + controls scenarios to identify the best ROI solution.

Our guaranteed savings are based on actual data, loads, weather… not rules of thumb.

Finally, a commercial solar service that won’t waste your time.

Fewer panels. Faster installs. Lower cost. Our whole building approach reduces your overall energy demand first, so you end up installing only the panels you need.

    2018: Capitalism Will Save The Planet

    The climate conversations of 2017 seemed as extreme as the weather itself. Regardless of where you sit on these issues, one fundamental fact has been largely absent from the conversation: to be viable, climate solutions must be profitable.


    How Optimizing Fan Power Helped a Pac-12 School Save $100K Annually on Energy

    Our approach, which we call ‘Efficiency Production,’ is a long-term commitment. That means we don’t just drop in, offer advice and move along. We know that energy savings only persist when someone takes ownership for them. If energy savings aren’t measuring up, we cut a check to our clients. No matter how smart your projections, there’s always going to be efficiency drift over time.


    How Energy Efficiency Helps Hotels Win the Hospitality Boxing Match

    Success in today’s hospitality industry is a boundless boxing fight (bear with me on this metaphor) to maximize revenue per available room (RevPAR) and over-index on the STR Report. When I was in the hotel business, I was so focused on improving customer experience to push rates that I never gave much thought to electric bills.

  • Efficiency Reserves

    Prospecting for ‘Efficiency Reserves’

    Your tenants will tell you some of what you need to responsibly manage your building: it’s too hot, it’s too cold. But there are so many more energy savings hidden in your building, from not putting air pumps into overdrive to coolant at the right temperature, that we’ve given them a name: Efficiency Reserves.


    How Carbon Lighthouse Got Its CLUES

    In their first year in the energy efficiency business, Carbon Lighthouse founders Brenden Millstein and Raphael Rosen encountered a client who almost stole their thunder. When Millstein and Rosen first visited the building, an office building owned by Dostart Development, they saw that the owner had already changed out incandescent lightbulbs for LEDs and upgraded their HVAC system.

The Carbon Lighthouse Mission

Because stopping climate change will only happen if we can make it easy and profitable, together we are engineering new ways to erase the 20% of global emissions from non-residential buildings.
