Piedmont Service Group customizes energy programs and services to create an ideal solution for each client’s individual objectives. Pairing the latest in energy technologies with our industry-leading services, we maximize the efficiency of their current operations and assist them in developing and implementing a long-term energy sustainability plan.
The bottom line is a lower total cost of operations by maximizing the building’s energy efficiency. Our local experience, expertise and commitment uniquely position us to self-perform and be held fully accountable for the services we provide. Our successful long-term client relationships are our greatest testimony to the quality of the programs we provide.
Complete Building Efficiency
Our Energy Services solutions begin by maximizing the efficiency of the building’s existing systems. We start our process by making sure we understand the system’s design, operation and maintenance requirements so we can create the right solution that lowers costs and enhances the working environment.
While maximizing the efficiency of existing systems, we benchmark the building’s performance to further identify and evaluate no-cost/low-cost savings opportunities. From auditing to measurement and verification, we provide ongoing efficiency reporting to track our progress.
We understand the path to energy sustainability is a journey and not an event. Therefore, we partner with our clients to develop long-term turnkey programs that include everything from energy management and capital planning, incentives and rebates, flexible financing, return on investment and financial analysis, to guaranteed performance programs.
Leveraging our in-house resources, we self-perform the services provided. We include evaluation, design, service and project management, program implementation, and administration and support of our program. We consistently report on performance and update our clients through key measurements to verify our results.
One of the greatest challenges our industry faces is distilling vast amounts of information into understandable reports. We simplify this inherent complexity for our clients. With our professional staff of Energy Engineers and Certified Energy Managers we filter and direct applicable information to our clients allowing them to make the best and most informed decision for their organization.
We use the latest in energy efficient technologies and informational resources to access the data our clients need. We also hold memberships and affiliations with numerous local, regional, industry and government associations to provide the best solutions for our clients.
Several alternative or renewable energy sources are gaining momentum in the United States as candidates to help curb the consumption of fossil fuels and reduce CO2 emissions. A number of states have instituted renewable portfolio standards dictating minimum amounts of renewable energy generated by utilities.
Among the most prominent emerging alternative energy sources are solar energy (including solar thermal and solar photovoltaic), wind energy, cogeneration and nuclear energy while several others are being developed with real potential. As a sustainability-focused energy company, we remain dedicated to investing in these technologies and increasing their viability as we find ways to make our client’s buildings more efficient and make our future brighter.
We are an ENERGY STAR® partner with one of the largest portfolios of rated buildings in America. ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us save money for our clients and protecting the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
