+What is Correlate?

Correlate is the quickest path to completing energy projects for organizations. We bring together a full suite of energy experts, tools and payment programs to create profit through a well managed energy strategy.

+Can my energy company partner or "white label" Correlate's platform and programs?

Yes, please contact us. Correlate energy programs remove obstacles that kill energy projects, delivering ready buyers (for your services). 

If you're an energy industry product or service provider looking to create "Private Label" or "White Labeled" programs for your customers.  We offer attractive pricing and revenue participation for partners. 

+What are solutions and measures commonly included in your programs?

Please visit our Program Tools page to see what many of our custom strategic energy management programs include.

While helping customers achieve their individual organization energy goals requires personalization, there are technologies that are common to virtually all organizations. For example, addressing lighting and building heating and cooling efficiency is very common. Taking steps to tune up, replace or upgrade these technologies, as well as other energy reduction tips, can have a dramatic effect. Depending on the nature of your business, addressing production process, fans, motors, and other critical equipment could result in a similar tune-up, replacement, or upgrade path.

Different methods of energy conservation, such as deploying granular controls, considering switching amongst fuel sources or providers, participating in lucrative state or utility company sponsored conservation programs (electricity, natural gas, water) and/or generating your own energy are other measures which may also make sense.

+Is there a certain size organization that works best for your programs? (What markets will it work in?)

Correlate can help organizations of any size, that are in the United States, to set goals and achieve their energy management results.

+How much do Correlate's programs cost? (How much does the Correlate Energy Program subscription cost?)

Correlate offers a low monthly subscription, $99 per facility. We develop your first Energy Program in 30-60 days. When we begin work implementing and orchestrating your Energy Program, we give you the option to continue monthly payments or convert to the annual subscription for a three-year term.

Energy savings typically pay for all service and energy project costs.  Net benefits for your business can easily be 10-30% of current energy cost. (Increased cash flow/profits)

+How long is a typical Correlate program engagement?

Typically three years. This can be variable depending on the quantity and complexity of your individual assets and the nature of your energy management goals. The key is persistence. Correlate will work to continuously improve the efficiency and cash flow of your organization.

Generally, it will take our energy concierge anywhere from 30-90 days to create your custom Energy Program.  Deployment and management are ongoing as part of our subscription services.

+What happens with the data that is created by an engagement with Correlate?

The data we collect is, and always will be, yours. We will retain your data indefinitely unless notified to do otherwise. We will never share your data with another party without your consent.

+How does the Correlate know what strategies and programs are relevant to my organization?

Correlate will work with you to better understand your organization's energy costs, goals, and objectives. We use a combination of human expertise and automation, while simultaneously engaging vendors, solutions providers and utility representatives within local markets to solve for what is possible.

We use data that we have gathered from you and your facilities to support this. (Our energy concierges are experienced in all major Generation Technologies, Energy Efficiency Frameworks, and Standards as well as program funding)

+Who in my organization should be engaging with the Correlate?

If you're an energy champion in your company contact us!

Ideally, company representatives who can speak for the business as to short term and long term goals, who have the ability to define success for the business and also have decision-making capacity within the business are critical participants. This is most often C-level leaders or members of the executive leadership team.

Interaction with operations and facilities personnel can be tremendously helpful (when and if these roles exist). Depending on the nature of the business goals, other staff may be asked to participate (often times in a limited capacity) as well. In fact, one of our first tasks is to help you assemble your internal 'Energy Team'.

+How much cash flow can I generate?

Savings are proportionate to the number of measures acted upon that move you off of your baseline. It is not uncommon for our strategic energy programs to create 20% net utility savings (improved cash flow) for businesses that have not used energy monitoring devices or pursued energy conservation or renewable generation measures in the past. While rare, 40% savings is not unheard of!

+We've done some energy projects in the past... what makes your program different?

First off, congratulations on managing your energy! Well done.

Our energy programs incorporate your past energy work. They are agnostic to specific technologies or vendors and centered on a performance-based fee model. Therefore, our energy programs don't disrupt current vendor relationships and infrastructure. 

Our programs are additive because we deploy energy decision support tools, data infrastructure, and expertise and then pair this with proven energy management frameworks. This creates a clear path for you to engage and become aware of your options and their value to your organization.

+Can you support my Title 24 efforts?

Likely, yes. Please contact us.
