Sustainable Solutions

 

Davis Conway Consulting specializes in energy efficient solutions. Electric, Water, Gas, HVAC, and Waste. New Construction or Existing.

If you are here then you have a goal in mind. These goals often range from 100% renewable resource consumption and 0 waste, to simply appeasing stakeholders and improved public perception.

While we are more than happy to help you reach your goal of 100% renewable resource consumption or 0 waste, you will need to understand that you will be spending money that will not have a 100% direct return on investment. The cost of this goal relies heavily on the return generated from social responsibility perception.

The goals of appeasing stakeholders or saving operating cost are in reality the same thing. It has been proven time and time again that effective energy management programs have short direct returns on investment and display real social responsibility improvements.

  • If you think that simply replacing your bulbs with the new LED plug and play bulbs that do not require any fixture alterations is the best option, you may be incorrect.
  • If you think that putting motion detectors in every room is an efficient use of funds, you may be incorrect.
  • If you think spending tons of money on equipment, software, or exotic systems is the best option, you may be incorrect. Regardless of what the stack of paperwork provided by the salesman states.

Yes, changing fluorescent bulbs to LED bulbs will definitely save you money and have a short return on investment, but will it be the maximum return possible?

Our goal is to show the maximum benefit with a direct return on investment (including our cost) of less than five years.
