We contracted Rick Williams and his firm, CommEnergy, to benchmark all our 24 properties.    He was efficient and resourceful in handling the specific needs of our tenants.   He was able to benchmark and produce the necessary reports without troubling our clients, nor my office.
I would highly recommend Rick and his company for benchmarking and energy consulting.

Thank you once again for the great job that you and your company did us on fulfilling the San Francisco Audit requirements.  We received numerous proposals from vendors who made it sound so complicated and expensive but after receiving your proposal and sitting down with you, it all became very simple.

We've started working on your suggestions and I know that the overall saving will be substantial on each of the four properties audited.

Thank you again,

Sergio Nibbi

​​CommEnergy provides commercial energy savings with little or no capital outlay. Come explore the programs and products that become cash positive from day one.

CommEnergy is an ENERGY STAR Partner with hundreds of  of commercial clients in California.   Our experienced team will provide you options to lower your energy cost, while not investing a dime.


California's AB 802 will require all commercial properties as well as multifamily buildings exceeding 50,000 SF to benchmark in January 2018.  All the buildings' EnergyStar Scores will be published to the public to view.  

Tenants will see how well their building performs when considering renewal, while new tenants and customers will see how efficient and green each property is.   Buyers use the score to judge how energy efficient the property has been.  
   EnergyStar Benchmarking takes a rolling 12 month average of energy and water use, so the advantage to Benchmarking NOW is that there will be time to make any no cost or low cost improvements to make that a good score.   

Benchmarking is inexpensive and designed to provide automatic upload of utility data that produce timely reports.   Call us and we can show you the options.​
