Environmental Sustainability. Financial Sustainability.
CPower can help you achieve both.
Your eye is always on the future: The future of your students, your school, your planet. You work locally to address global climate change with campus-wide environmental sustainability initiatives. And you work to assure your school’s financial sustainability by seeking out new ways to cut costs and generate revenue. That’s why you look to CPower.
Your mission may be straightforward, but it’s anything but simple. You’re tasked with reducing energy use across multiple facilities—each with its own unique function while incorporating renewable and distributed energy resources into the energy mix.
Start with demand response. These programs pay you to reduce your campus electricity consumption when your electrical grid is stressed from too much demand. You cut the costs of the high-priced electricity you didn’t use. Those cost savings, combined with the revenue you earn, can fund future environmental sustainability programs, and contribute to your long-term financial sustainability. All at no cost to you.
We’re here to help.
Watch: Leveraging the value of Energy Efficiency
The greenest (and cheapest) energy is the energy you don’t use. If your school is like most, you’ve implemented some level of energy efficiency projects—LED lighting systems, LEED building requirements, improvements to chillers, HVAC upgrades. Energy efficiency is permanent energy reduction, and that’s permanent cost-cutting. It can also be a serendipitous source of additional revenue.
Watch: Leverage Your Generator Assets to Earn Revenue
Campus research and medical facilities rely on an uninterrupted supply of electrical power to assure unimpeachable results and patient safety. Your onsite backup generators are designed to provide that power instantly and automatically when needed. Properly permitted, those same generators can provide you with an uninterrupted supply of revenue payments.

“Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.”

Innovation breeds success—and recognition. California State University, Dominguez Hills worked with CPower and our energy storage partner Stem to develop an innovative load relief program with a combination of AI-enabled energy storage from Stem and demand response from CPower. Not only was this a net positive for the university— it won the 2018 Smart Energy Decisions Innovation Award for Customer Project/Onsite Renewable Energy.
