For Two Chattanooga Businesses, Electricity Savings Are Shocking: Usage Cut over 60 Percent, Property Value Increases $100,000+

Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

A new company in Chattanooga is helping local businesses and homeowners dramatically reduce their energy usage while putting a lot of “green” back in their wallets. Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Consulting (EES Consulting), a nationwide firm offering remarkable energy cost savings to commercial and industrial facilities as well as homeowners, opened its Chattanooga office this past June 2013 and has grown further into the Dalton/North Georgia market.

EES Consulting has recently completed several projects in Chattanooga, including:


    Dunlap Industries – An energy efficient lighting retrofit has significantly improved visibility in the Dunlap Industries warehouse while reducing kilowatt usage per hour. The project has increased property value by $ 135,000, and with a 35 percent return on investment, the company is expected to recoup its investment in less than three years.

    CitiPark Garage – Working with Berry & Hunt (property owner/manager), EES Consulting proposed a lighting retrofit for CitiPark Garage that would not only enhance the brightness and security of the facility, but would provide the owner with a very quick return of its investment. With a 90 percent return on investment, this lighting retrofit is expected to achieve a payback in just under one year. Electricity usage is expected to be reduced by over 60 percent, and the market value of the property has increased by $ 180,000.

R. Steve Hunt, managing director at Berry & Hunt, notes that the company “is well pleased with its participation with EES Consulting.”

“With the volatility of energy prices, we are finding that business and home owners in the Chattanooga region are interested in energy efficiency solutions and upgrades with a four-year payback or less,” said Mark W. Huth, EES Consulting Southeast Area Developer. “Property owners and managers have been receptive to EES Consulting’s approach as our assessments are affordable, implementation is turn-key and project financing often produces positive cash flow after energy savings are factored.”

EES Consulting’s Chattanooga and North Georgia operations are led by Steve Pickett, Ethan Collier and Dan Levan. Pickett and Collier, both Tennessee natives, come to EES having built two Chattanooga construction companies, Pickett Homes, Inc., and Collier Construction, respectively. Levan has more than 25 years of business finance and management experience complementing Pickett and Collier’s construction expertise.

EES Consulting uses its patented, three-step EESy Method to assess, implement and finance customized energy efficiency solutions for commercial and residential clients. In Phase 1, EES consultants evaluate a building’s energy usage and recommend practical efficiency solutions – such as solar window film, LED lighting and reflective roof coatings. In Phase 2, EES acts as the general contractor to implement the upgrades and in Phase 3, EES provides project financing and recommendations to businesses and homeowners on tax incentives and rebates to help offset the project cost.

EES Consulting provides customized energy solutions for commercial and residential clients, including high return on investment retrofit products that ensure the greatest energy savings. Through our patented EESy three-step process, our consultants are able to determine the clearest path to saving the most energy and money.

Receive Special Savings for Visiting ReBath Northeast at the NEPA Home & Garden Show


Forty Fort, PA (PRWEB) January 24, 2014

Visit the ReBath Northeast bathroom remodeling display at the 9th annual Northeastern PA Home & Garden Show beginning this weekend.

The home show is the first of the spring season in the Northeast PA area and will be held at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township.

ReBath Northeast will be giving away great savings on bathroom remodeling to anyone who stops by their booth this weekend. Owner and president, Rich Rome decided to change the offer for the NEPA home shows this year to give the home show-goers a big advantage.

“Many of the people that go to the home shows are serious about finding contractors to work on their homes,” Rome said. “We want to give them a significant discount so the ones that are serious will give us a call.”

This year, ReBath Northeast will be bringing four bathroom displays to show attendees. The displays include examples of a full bathroom remodel, a low barrier shower base with a ramp, a walk-in tub and an acrylic bathtub liner.

Along with the beautiful displays, ReBath Northeast will have knowledgeable associates at the booths to answer all questions. Anyone who stops by the booth and is interested in meeting with an estimator can give their information to receive a scheduling phone call.

For the first time, ReBath Northeast’s sister company, 1 Week Kitchens, will also have a display. Their booth will be located next to the ReBath booth. The booths are located on the upper level, numbers 46-50.

Along with these two great booths the NEPA Home and Garden Show features nearly 100 vendors, home show only prices and celebrity appearances by Jeff Devlin and Harry Rinker of HGTV.

Hours for the show are: Friday Jan. 24, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday Jan. 25, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday Jan. 26 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $ 7.50 for adults, $ 5.50 for seniors 65+ and free for kids under 16. Parking for this event is free.

Don’t forget to visit the other ReBath crew at the Philadelphia Home Show again this weekend at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Exhibition Hall ‘F.’

Should we wipe out savings or go with home equity line of credit to finance home improvements?

Question by boots: Should we wipe out savings or go with home equity line of credit to finance home improvements?
My husband and I are debating how to finance some home improvement projects. He says use savings, I say use a line of credit(repay within two years hopefully) I am afraid if we use savings we will never replace it. He doesn’t want debt. Any opinions?

Best answer:

Answer by Joe C
Neither. Never use all of your savings or borrow money for a luxury expense.

Save up the extra money and pay cash.
