Utility-based energy efficiency programs (like the popular On-Bill Financing (OBF) program) are a no-brainer for the customer; but the rules and regulations are a nightmare for contractors.
Let's face it - if utility programs were easy to navigate, every contractor would work through them. These programs can be daunting and make contractors feel like they have to jump through hoops in order to get projects approved.
Any good energy efficiency project starts with expert data analysis and a professional audit. Parakeet conducts a feasibility assessment based on electric data and other facility metrics to determine how to maximize energy savings by making the best use of available utility rebate and financing programs.

A lot has changed since lighting projects first started being incentivized by California utilities. The accuracy of energy calculations is now more crucial than ever before. Meanwhile, it's becoming more common to run into existing onsite generation (like solar panels) or an exceedingly complex collection of service meters. Many contractors view these challenges as a reason to give up on a project. But why leave money on the table? Parakeet can step in to successfully develop even the most complicated projects and get them approved in record time.
