Fast-Growing Energy Management Company Intends to Turn the Public Sector Green
This partnership is an important milestone in Just Salad’s ambitious sustainability agenda and furthers the company’s core mission to promote human and planetary health. The restaurant chain seeks to lower its carbon footprint by reducing food and plastic waste, offering plant-based, low-emissions menu items, and increasing energy efficiency.
“Budderfly’s 2020 goal for their public-sector expansion is to break down the barriers to cities and towns going green,” said Budderfly founder and CEO, Al Subbloie. “We will enable high-energy-consuming facilities like parking garages, schools, in-door sports venues and government office buildings to realize immediate energy and cost savings, using only Budderfly’s capital. We eliminate the need for public or third party funding of these efficiency projects. Perhaps best of all, we take all of the performance risk, have very simple to understand contracts, and will work on pilot projects to show our organizational capacity, streamlining and speeding up the entire contracting process.”
Many competing energy efficiency models rely on speculative projections of future energy costs to make maintenance and upgrades to facilities economically sustainable. By contrast, Budderfly provides upfront, guaranteed and long-term savings based on a city or town’s historical energy usage for each facility.
Budderfly is disrupting the energy industry by leading the digital transformation of energy consumption conservation To date, Budderfly’s solutions have been saved over 35 Million kWh for their customers. Using only their own capital and not requiring any risk on behalf of their clients, Budderfly is already paying for efficiency improvements in over 1600 locations such as restaurants, office buildings, and recreational facilities. Budderfly implements proprietary energy intelligence software, energy efficiency upgrades – such as LED lights, HVAC controls, variable frequency drives, and refrigeration controls – that span more than 30 savings categories. Budderfly creates networks of patented IoT devices that meter and report on all elements of energy use. Together these optimize energy usage at the point of consumption within each facility across the enterprise. Budderfly’s ongoing services and proactive maintenance ensure that a building’s energy infrastructure never becomes outdated. The result is significant, immediate and progressive energy expense savings, upgraded facilities, and a reduced carbon footprint for its client facilities. For more information visit www.budderfly.com
