+What is Correlate?

Correlate provides private labeled strategic energy management programs with concierge services to help businesses get up to 60% energy savings results.  Software workflow does the needed work to efficiently create engagement, insights, and action to do more energy projects. Correlate's service is a fraction of the cost of hiring a traditional energy manager, and projects are done "as a Service", off-balance sheet with no upfront costs

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

Yes, please contact us if you're an energy industry product or service providers looking to create "Private Label" or "White Labeled" programs for your customers.  We'd love to speak with you further and offer attractive pricing and revenue participation for partners. 

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

Please visit our Program Services page to see what many of our custom strategic energy management programs include. https://www.correlateinc.com/correlate-platform-tools

While helping customers achieve their individual business energy consumption objectives requires personalization, there are technologies that are common to virtually all businesses. For example, addressing lighting and building heating and cooling efficiency immediately 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, replace 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 business that works best for your programs? (What markets will it work in?)

Correlate can help businesses 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 concierge service cost?)

It will not cost you anything to engage the Correlate. If you find our Energy Concierge Service valuable, we will ask that you pay a small monthly fee for continued access and help from our services. Program savings, most always, 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)

Our fee will be directly proportionate to the cost of specific resources that you have under management with us. We will share the amount of the fee (and how we solved for it) as soon as we have established a baseline measurement of your resources to be managed. We can alternatively provide you an estimate in advance of engagement.  If we don't achieve your programs savings goal, we will credit you back our fees. 

+How long is a typical Correlate program and engagement?

This can be variable depending on the quantity and complexity of your individual assets and the nature of your energy management goals. Generally, it will take our energy concierge anywhere from 30-120 days create your custom energy program.  Deployment and management is ongoing as part of our platform 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 platform know what strategies and programs are relevant to my business?

Your Correlate energy concierge will work with you to better understand your business energy costs, goals and objectives, 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 financing)

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

If you're an energy champion in you 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.

+How much will I save?

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 20-40% net utility savings 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 platform different?

First off, congratulations on managing your energy! Well done. Correlate’s core differentiation is that there is no up-front cost for use of the platform. We deploy machine based energy decision support tools, data infrastructure, and expertise and then pair this to proven energy management frameworks. While doing this, your virtual energy manager sits on the customer side of the table, agnostic to specific technologies or vendors, centered on a performance based fee model. Therefore, the platform doesn't need to disrupt current vendor relationships and infrastructure. This creates a comfortable space for you to engage and become aware of your options and their materiality.

+Can you support my Title 24 efforts?

Likely, yes. Please contact us.
