Sustainability Partners LLC (SP) pays to replace old infrastructure with new. Furthermore, SP pays to keep that new infrastructure forever young with well-funded maintenance, upgrades and eventual replacement. SP requires no facility guarantees, minimums or multi-year contracts. The new infrastructure is simply paid for by usage fees, when and if used. Thus, a school that is closed during the summer or spring break incurs no fees to SP.

We can replace old HVAC, lighting, boilers, toilets, sprinklers, insulation, windows, motors, freezer cases, cooling towers, chillers and pumps. Once replaced, SP keeps these items performing reliably and efficiently. All usage is measured with direct sub-meters pushing data to the cloud 24×7. Using this data, your facility, the manufacturers, the service providers and SP receives real-time alerts for any potential outages or performance problems.

Your electric, gas, and water companies handle everything from the outside wall of your building back to the point of production. We can handle everything on the inside. Just like them, we’re month-to-month. Just like them, we maintain the infrastructure at no cost to you. Just like them, you sign up and go, without the need for long procurement cycles.

Collaborating closely with vendors and their prospective customers to offer materials, product installation, long-term support, and guaranteed performance, SP pays for it all!! This is NOT a loan, lease, financing agreement, bond, ESCO, installment purchase, rental, or ordinary sharing-agreement; we pay 100% of materials, installation, maintenance and upgrades. You are protected from economic risk and lower your infrastructure costs at the same time.

We typically work with renovation or retrofit projects, where some kind of old equipment can be replaced to save energy, however, we can also work on new construction where you’d like to use more efficient systems, but are limited by the construction budget.

We work with a variety of customers ranging from municipalities to hospitals, and airports to prisons. Learn more about who we work with here.

BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Products
HVAC Intelligence Controls | Smart Thermostats | Solar Water Heater | Double Pane Glass | Advanced Wall / Ceiling Insulation

Impact
Natural gas systems that are eligible for LEED certification Rating System Points include: high efficiency boilers, furnaces, and waterheaters; high efficiency energy recovery systems; high efficiency food service equipment; and desiccant regeneration systems. Heating and cooling are the largest energy users in commercial buildings, often times setting higher rates and demand charges.

The verifiable abundance, affordability and favorable environmental qualities of natural gas makes it the only domestic energy source capable of simultaneously increasing our energy security, decreasing our dependence upon imported oil, and reducing emissions of pollutants.

EFFICIENT LIGHTING

Products
LED Fixtures | Ballasts | Occupancy Sensors | Dimming | Directional Lighting

Impact
Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.

EFFICIENT WATER USAGE

Products
Water Heater | Watering Systems | Gardening | Crop Maintenance

Impact
Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80% of the Nation’s consumptive water use and over 90% in many Western States.

HVAC

Products
Cooling Towers | Economizers | Air Handlers | Heat Pumps | Smart thermostats | RTU’s

Impact
Upgrades to HVAC systems can save energy due to increases in efficiency and changes in usage. Technologies now exist to pre-condition air moving through standard HVAC systems that greatly reduce the power requirements for final conditioning and also add to fresh air exchange. Smart controls and remote monitoring, along with optimization software can transform an inefficient building HVAC system to a more efficient system that provides better comfort at lower cost.

MOTORS

Products
VFD’s | ECM | Pumps | Induction

Impact
Replacement of old motors in many applications with new technologies such as VFD’s, ECM, Induction, etc. reduce power requirements due to the improved efficiency of the newer technology. Variable speed motors in pumping applications such as swimming pools, ponds, and other bodies of water allow for proper water turnover at lower speeds while still providing necessary cleaning at higher speeds.

POWER CONDITIONING & STORAGE

Products
Demand Charge (Stem) | Conditioning | Peak Storage | Batteries | Ultracaps

Impact
Power Conditioning and Storage upgrades help level load and peak requirements across the board as well as prevent damage to equipment.

WASTE TO VALUE / ENERGY

Products
Organic Food | Bio Digester | Waste to SynGas | Biofuel Dispensing | BioDiesel

Impact
There are a number of emerging technologies that are able to produce energy from waste and other fuels without direct combustion. Many of these technologies have the potential to produce more electric power from the same amount of fuel than would be possible by direct combustion.

CLEAN ENERGY GENERATION

Products
Solar Syngas Generator | Natural Gas Engine | Micro Turbine Electricity Generation | Fuel Cell CoGen

Impact
Natural gas is unique among our energy choices because we have vast domestic supplies – and underutilized capacity – that is ready now to play a growing role generating cleaner, affordable electricity for America’s homes and businesses. Current natural gas generation capacity is underutilized and natural gas is a highly attractive choice for building new capacity. Natural gas is also a strong complement to renewable energy – providing reliable power when the wind isn’t blowing or the sun isn’t shining.

CLEAN TRANSPORTATION

Products
Garbage Trucks | Compression Station | Charging Station | Fleet management & optimization

Impact
The United States imported about 45% of the petroleum it consumed, and transportation accounted for more than 70% of total U.S. petroleum consumption. Replacing just 7% of the oil used in the U.S. each year with natural gas would save consumers $25.6 billion a year. That works out to $130.61 per licensed driver every year. The number is meaningful, but remember: That’s generated by replacing only 7% of oil used with natural gas. If half of the current amount of oil used was replaced with natural gas, you’re looking at $182.9 billion a year, or nearly $1,000 per year per driver.
