GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:GRHU), a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, encourages and assists companies of all sizes with efforts to identify and adopt strategies that fully incorporate the various incentive programs offered through their local utilities. These programs provide significant monetary incentives for acting on projects that improve energy efficiency and pays consumers for participating in periodic consumption reductions (Demand Response or DR) -- increasing a business' bottom line for the coming year.
Along with Demand Response, GreenHouse provides energy efficiency services for customers including General Dynamics, Gulfstream Aerospace, PepsiCo and its burgeoning relationship with the United States Army. The U.S. military continues to embrace and expand its use of green solutions on its bases throughout the world, enhancing the fast-tracked penetration of a domestic consumer market for sustainable products and services.
The question most frequently asked of GreenHouse by its clients is how to reduce (utility-influenced) operational costs by managing consumption. In an effort to be more sustainable or green, GreenHouse suggests companies adapt the following strategies and tactics to their business plan for 2011:
* When starting a consumption-related utility incentive program, partner with only highly reputable companies who know all of the facts; bad choices can actually escalate costs
* Use the latest in lighting technology and embrace proper lighting techniques for businesses
* Automation -- the backbone of the energy efficiency process worldwide. Install an Automated Demand Response program (ADR) for energy efficiency and load curtailment
* Renewable Fuels (wind, solar, etc.) -- Part of the equation, not the solution
GreenHouse offers consulting services wherein a business can outsource all of the "heavy lifting" and planning that is required to be as energy efficient an operation as possible. Ideally, companies will employ an "Energy Czar" and tie their compensation to the financial benefits gained from implementing feasible sustainability practices. GreenHouse can help a business establish this position from candidate selection and training to delivering ready-to-go Strategic Energy Plans for a facility or portfolio. Either way, for businesses both large and small, companies like GreenHouse can support that effort.
