Verigreen Energy and Light Solutions, LLC Rebrands as EnergySherlock™
Services Reduce Energy Consumption and Costs for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

Ashburn, VA, November 22, 2011—Verigreen Energy and Light Solutions LLC, a leading energy conservation management (ECM) company that serves small and medium-sized businesses, today announced the launch of its new operating brand, EnergySherlock. The company’s full suite of ECM products and services achieve dramatic savings for customers in quick-serve and full service restaurants, hospitality, healthcare, transportation, government contractors, and local governments. A three-step approach detects and solves operating inefficiencies with a customized energy conservation plan and then saves money by implementing best-in-class technologies and measuring results.

“We provide an array of energy conservation strategies and technologies, including products and services designed to improve operational performance while reducing energy consumption, waste, pollution and operating expenses,” explains Tim Reichert, CEO. “Today, EnergySherlock is poised to deliver a unique blend of energy management resources that are specific to small and medium-sized businesses. This market sector typically works on thin margins in a very competitive landscape, and these companies deserve to benefit from every business advantage available.”

The primary focus for clean energy, sometimes referred to as Cleantech technologies, remains directed toward the development of renewable resources. Yet, the industry is several years away from making a big enough contribution to impact the American power grid. Individual business owners need to implement their own energy conservation initiatives to remain competitive.

“Most business owners don’t have the expertise to develop and implement a comprehensive approach to managing energy as a strategic asset. EnergySherlock helps customers take advantage of new energy tax laws, negotiate with utilities, and optimize and monitor energy systems performance. We offer an easy way for customers to dramatically improve the bottom line without raising prices or making cuts that hurt them operationally,” concludes Reichert.

A recent statement by Jeremy Rifkin, President of the Foundation on Economic Trends, underscores the need for business owners to bridge the gap between better utilization of existing power sources and the development of new ones. “The key to survival in the next 30 years is not labor costs. It’s energy costs.” Rifkin predicts that current economic conditions will force a major shift in how power is managed domestically.

Commercial buildings use 39% of the total energy consumed in the United States. Approximately 70% of that electricity is used to power HVAC and lighting systems. The most cost-effective facilities management strategies start with energy audits and end with the implementation of building automation services and other energy conservation measures that are appropriate for each situation. These initiatives provide perpetual cost savings and a rapid return on investment (ROI). In addition to an attractive ROI, most EnergySherlock customers experience cost-neutral implementations resulting from tax benefits, refunds, and other savings discovered during the energy audit.

The company has launched a new website to coincide with the introduction of the EnergySherlock brand. The site provides the information businesses need to start reducing energy consumption, improving their carbon footprint, and minimizing utility bills by combining advanced monitoring techniques with energy efficient lighting and equipment.

Right now energy companies’ goals and businesses’ goals lie at opposite ends of the spectrum. Utilities want to continue to sell in volume and repair existing infrastructure. Companies want to improve margins by reducing operating expenses.” Read more.
