There's a new player in the fast-growing sector of clean energy services for building owners. EnFlux Building Solutions, based in Houston, Texas, offers an unusual combination of financing services coupled with energy solutions for buildings.
EnFlux's products are offered indirectly through mechanical contractors and directly to building owners.
For contractors, EnFlux provides financial sales training as well as a simple to use web-based platform to help contractors grow their business. "We repackage complex products into easy-to-use online sales tools allowing contractors to add to their product line without having to become experts in finance or the energy markets," says Larry Derrett, founder and CEO of EnFlux.
For building owners, energy efficiency is now top of mind due to:
- The desire to reduce their carbon footprint
- Tenant needs for a comfortable work environment
- LEED certification requirements
- The approval of investors.
Achieving smart building status requires considerable capital investment to replace old inefficient equipment. However, finding a third party to provide the capital for projects of different types and sizes can be a challenge.
Derrett adds "We have developed a unique platform to finance clean energy projects of any size, ranging from a $20,000 quick retrofit to a $30 million major renovation using the C-PACE program. Many companies provide small retrofit financing. Many others offer C-PACE for large projects. EnFlux does both."
