Virtual Commissioning®
Energy Efficiency Program

SMBs want your help.
Here's how to reach them.

Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) account for >85% of all non-residential accounts, yet this customer segment is often missed by standardized, one-size fits all programs that fail to meet their unique, ever-changing needs. Today, SMB customers are seeking personalized programs, tailored recommendations, and adaptable virtual communications. Power TakeOff can help. By focusing on low and no-cost energy saving actions, without the burden of on-site visits, program costs, and enrollment paperwork, the Virtual Commissioning® (VCx®) energy efficiency program delivers an exceptional customer experience with proven results. Best of all, under a Pay-for-Performance model, Power TakeOff is exclusively paid (100%) on only kWh, kW, and/or Therm savings achieved.
