Getting worried about grid reliability or the outrageous prices? With buildings and utility power lines crisscrossing sensitive forests, wildfires are becoming ever more deadly. In 2018, seventeen of twenty-one wildfires in northern California were sparked by utility power lines. Even worse, they were largely unnecessary. A few years before that southern California had similar catastrophes. Because buildings waste 30% – 50% of all the energy they receive, 50% – 70% of all energy (and air pollution) from power plants could be avoided. Thus slowing climate change – IF they were more efficient and sustainable. Fortunately, 3fficient is making existing buildings more efficient than their brand new peers.
By hosting our nanogrids and microgrids, 3fficient can provide select building owners and tenants with clean, resilient power and no-cost building efficiency upgrades. If your buildings are located in areas vulnerable to forced utility outages, you may even qualify for additional benefits.
