What products and/or services does your company provide?
We offer innovative ways for commercial and industrial clients to save money on energy costs.
Energy efficiency is at the heart of energy conservation and reducing both commercial and industrial long term operating expenses. Replacing older, inefficient HVAC, combustion equipment, lighting and energy monitoring and controls is an essential function of today’s facilities management.
In summation, you reduce your energy consumption, improve your facility and equipment, and save money all with no upfront out of pocket cost.
What are some of the challenges you see in the market?
In conjunction with our industry partners, we offer energy audits, equipment replacement and installation all at no out of pocket expense to the client. You no longer have to be a massive industrial company to take advantage of these programs. In fact, many of the businesses taking advantage of energy upgrades are small to medium energy consumers such as real estate owner operators, restaurant groups and auto dealerships.
Now, here is the best part -- all this with no capital expenditure to the client! The cost of all improvements, equipment and construction expense is amortized in a longer term, competitively priced energy supply contract. Depending on the scope of the project, the supply contracts are three to five years in duration. After the supply contract is over you own the equipment.
What keeps you motivated to lead an organization in this industry?
We have offered valuable services for over three decades of experience to the energy marketplace. This industry never gets old and we always find new ways to help our customers. Helping business owners keeps us motivated.
What is your company mission?
Our mission is to bring our clients best in breed energy solutions to meet all of their efficiency requirements.
What is your differentiator in the market?
Our process is designed to be simple and worry free to the end user. Aaltra will schedule a comprehensive energy audit that will identify areas in your facility that can be updated or improved. The results of the energy audit will specify the type of upgrades, costs of equipment and installation along with the anticipated reduction in energy consumption realized by such improvements.
How do you believe collaboration can fuel change?
We believe the complexities of today's clean energy economy welcomes and needs collaboration. Instead of focusing on competitors, companies are open to working together to bring products and services to the market faster and more efficiently. That shift in thinking is fueling mass collaboration and a well connected global marketplace.
