It’s been an absolute pleasure to partner with Blue Ocean Energy on the Class A projects that I’ve been entrusted to manage. In the field of sustainability, it is so nice to work with people that are both incredibly educated in their trade of expertise and also truly care about the environment and the impact we’ll leave to future generations. Each time we audit my buildings for Energy Star compliance, I learn something new that can be applied to improving daily operations for our tenant population. This is not a check the box audit…..You truly learn how you can (or should in some cases) improve your building’s performance. Through this process last year, Blue Ocean also discovered a utility billing issue that enabled our owner to secure a roughly $17k reimbursement. As a result of Blue Ocean’s audits, training and education, I’m confident that our Team is well positioned to lead sustainability efforts for cost savings and improved tenant health and satisfaction.
Blue Ocean Energy has helped our property qualify for Energy Start for the past 5 years with our 16-18 year old buildings. BOE has been such a tremendous resource that has saved the property several thousand dollars by finding and correcting wasteful energy consumption.
Cousins Properties, Inc. in Austin has been working with Blue Ocean Energy since 2014 and we have been extremely satisfied with their work. Their comprehensive energy audits, sub-metering audits and monthly utility bill reviews have been instrumental in lowering our overall energy costs, identifying numerous billing errors by Austin Energy and helping us recoup all of our costs attributed to sub-metered spaces. Their team is professional and extremely knowledgeable and they take ownership of project they work on. Our engineering staff has come to see them as a valuable resource & partner in helping them to view some of their tasks from a higher level to really think holistically about their building. BOE’s reasonable fees are virtually always offset many times over by the savings we achieve. I highly recommend this firm to any ownership entity or property management firm for any commercial building in their portfolio.
After Blue Ocean completed the work, they found many simple fixes, that in the end saved us tens of thousands of dollars, not only paying us Blue Ocean’s reasonable fee back but also, netting us real and quantitative profits. In the end, it’s great to know our company has an ally in the awesome and difficult responsibility of maintaining multi-million dollar assets such as ours.
I enthusiastically recommend Blue Ocean Energy!
We have since then retained Blue Ocean to ensure that the building retains its efficiency and I am happy to report that we are near earning the distinguished ENERGY STAR certification. Blue Ocean has been professional and easy to deal with and I heartily recommend their service to any building owner/manager.
