Five Parts with One Goal in Mind: Yielding Maximum Value

ESG Analytics & Reporting

The industry’s most advanced reporting and analytics platform that streamlines your data, ESG reporting, and tracks performance across your portfolio.

  • Automate data collection and store in a central location to improve reporting and decision making
  • Track performance across your portfolio to ensure you reach your ESG goals
  • Get notifications of abnormal consumption that have been vetted for accuracy by Sustainability Analysts

Mandatory Benchmarking

More commercial and multifamily owners will have to report complete energy and water usage through the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager ® tool to comply with city benchmarking ordinances. You can rely on us to:

  • Oversee your EPA Portfolio Manager and gather, validate and upload energy and water usage data for filing compliance
  • Provide recommendations for improving your EPA scores
  • Help create acceptable estimations of unit data for Green Loan reporting

Rate and Tax Assurance

Approximately 70% of all properties in states where multifamily usage is exempt from state sales tax are erroneously billed. We ensure you’re charged the correct rates and benefit from applicable exemptions by:

  • Performing analysis of historical utility invoices for disparities
  • Routine review of billed rates, tariffs and published rates
  • Identifying state sales tax exemption opportunities and ensuring refunds are received in full

Energy Procurement

Strategically reduce energy spending year over year and mitigate risks associated with the energy markets—like catastrophic weather events—with the ability to:

  • Perform interruptible natural gas management to maximize rate incentives
  • Negotiate electric, gas and renewable energy contracts and save at least 10%
  • Evaluate continuous service agreements to reduce vacancy expenses and identify optimal resident referral programs

Energy and Water Conservation

Save up to 30% on energy and water usage with comprehensive on-site audits and capital improvements that help improve property values, reduce consumption and drive higher rents by:

  • Inspecting mechanical, lighting, plumbing and operational systems
  • Identifying retrofit and replacement opportunities
  • Developing project proposals with costs, savings, ROI, end-to-end project management, usage tracking and ongoing performance reports
