2016 is the best year yet for an energy efficiency investment. With the extension of Federal 179D tax incentives through the end of the year, which allow a deduction of up to $1.80 sq. ft., and the reduced cost of efficient technology, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your facility!
Conducting an energy assessment now will give you time to explore multiple energy-saving opportunities, as well as the available rebates, incentives, and financing options. If you know you want to cut operating costs and boost profit margins, then scheduling an assessment now will allow you to consider the options before the incentives run out.
On Thursday, March 31st, Dan Parsley, President and Co-Founder of EES Consulting, will be speaking with the Texas A&M University Energy Club from 7:00 – 8:00PM.
Dan will be sharing insight into energy efficiency opportunities in underserved markets and discussing his work with the Energy Efficient Building (EEB) committee of Houston. Dan received a BS in Liberal Arts from Texas A&M University and enjoys working with students who share his passion for entrepreneurship and the environment.

Just barely through the first quarter of 2016, the race for utility rebate money has already begun. Last year, CenterPoint Energy sold out of their $7 Million budget by July, but the pace has picked up in 2016. Nearly 40% of the rebate budget is already assigned, leaving $4 Million remaining in CenterPoint Energy’s Commercial Standard Offer Program for this year.

No matter the outcome of each match, members of the Houston Racquet Club can sip on red, white, or bubbly after their battle on the court, on the field, or in the pool. But where do empty bottles go at the end of the day?
At the Houston Racquet Club, which has been ranked among the top 50 tennis clubs in the country, there’s not much room for unsightly dumpsters. Rather than send reusable materials to the landfill, Houston Racquet Club enlisted EES Consulting to help address their issue of limited space by establishing a successful off-site recycling program.
At the end of 2015, Houston Racquet Club had recycled more than 25,000 pounds of glass!
Their efforts have had a big environmental impact:
- 4,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions avoided
- 12.5 tons of natural resources saved
- 11.75 tons of new glass can be created from HRC’s recycled glass

Time is running out for business owners to take advantage of cash rebates for implementing energy saving measures that reduce peak demand and comply with Texas’ energy efficiency goals. Of the $7 million budget allotted in 2015, there are only $2.5 million remaining in Centerpoint Energy’s Commercial Standard Offer Program. More
There are plenty of ways to save money on energy but the easiest way is by switching electricity providers. You many think you have a low rate but if you haven’t been paying attention, you could be paying much more than you think! When your contract is up and you don’t renew for another year, many utility companies switch you to a much higher rate on a month-to-month basis.

After Gallery Furniture implemented an extensive lighting retrofit in their flagship store, EES Consulting was able to help them obtain a 179D tax deduction of nearly $110,000, accelerating the payback of the project by more than two years. Through the tax deduction and the annual cost savings of upgrading all of Gallery Furniture’s inefficient interior and exterior lighting, they will see a recoup of their investment of just over 12 months.
