Energy Solutions

Through planned maintenance, revamping & replacing old equipment, repairing leaks, and more, W. L. Gary Company has been working hard to save our customers energy and money for over 100 years.

Today our customers are faced with the challenge of reducing their operating costs while increasing efficiency and maintaining or improving comfort for their tenants and clients.  They are faced with mounting pressure from the local and federal government for green/sustainable buildings and increasing demands from tenants in this competitive leasing market.   While these demands push for change, the obstacle of tight capital budgets with little to no money for large capital improvements produces a major challenge.

W. L. Gary Company, recognized as a MSCA GreenSTAR, is focused on providing high quality solutions at the best value for our customers.  We have and continue to help them overcome these challenges, successfully reducing energy use within budget, while keeping tenants and clients happy and comfortable.

Beyond Planned Maintenance

Our approach to energy services focuses on lowering your energy costs by identifying how your building consumes energy and where energy is being wasted.  By understanding this, we can work together to create an action plan that will immediately reduce your energy costs.

Through Energy Benchmarking we can determine your Energy Star (EStar) rating and assess some preliminary no cost/low cost recommendations to add to your planned maintenance routine. Gary Company can further conduct an energy audit on your building to better determine renovations that would have a higher ROI based on energy savings.  We will be with you every step of the way to help you determine the best solution and help you implement it to reach your desired EStar rating.

Keeping Track of your Energy

As we’ve all heard:  You can’t manage what you don’t measure! W. L. Gary Company can help you do both.

By using EnergyPrint, an online energy management dashboard that is linked to Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager Tool, we are able to help you understand your building’s energy and water use as it relates to similar buildings and your past performance.

EnergyPrint will help you answer the following questions that are imperative to understanding and properly managing your energy.

  1. How is my building doing?
  2. Is my energy use getting better or worse?
  3. Where are my opportunities for energy savings?
  4. Have my past energy improvements paid off?

By making a small investment with us in this service, we will help you monitor and manage your energy more efficiently and save you time, while saving your building energy and money.
