Energy Solutions

Commercial buildings account for nearly one-fifth of the U.S. energy consumption—half of that energy is consumed by office buildings, retail space and educational facilities. Add to that thousands of healthcare facilities and hospitality properties and the challenges to manage these expenses become evident. The opportunity to implement energy efficiency and cost-reduction services is ripe for building owners across all market segments wrestling with the problem of maintaining mechanical and electrical systems while realizing healthy profits amidst the reality of increasing costs of labor, material and taxes.

KLH Energy Solutions helps customers reduce costs associated with energy and operational expenses.

How, you ask? It’s simple—and it’s our mission:

“Delivering value to building owners and tenants by improving systems, increasing efficiency and creating quality environments through the integration of engineering and energy management”
