Follow our pathway to create meaningful change. The pg.approach is a non-linear framework through which an integrated approach can be customized to meet our clients’ sustainability goals. The framework is non-linear because the various aspects of our approach can follow a pathway based on our clients’ specific needs. Some clients may leverage only one aspect of the framework, whereas others may embrace the integrated approach from start to finish. The framework can also be deployed in a series of phases, allowing positive outcomes to occur in one phase before moving onto another. In all, the pg.approach is designed with our clients’ needs in mind.

We Educate Decision Makers We educate decision makers regarding innovative ways to find, save and make money through energy-related solutions. This is the only way innovation gets embraced in the marketplace.

We Audit Your Bills We employ systematic account review, audit, and analysis of your electric, gas, water, sewer, phone, IT, and wireless bills. We also provide energy procurement.

We Audit Your Building(s) We assess your building(s) to understand the current level of energy efficiency. In addition, we audit your past energy-related retrofits to determine whether they qualify for Section 179D incentives currently being offered through the 2005 Energy Policy Act (EPACT).

We Offer Viable Solutions

Through deploying the auditing process, we’re able to make economically viable recommendations to reduce your fixed energy costs.

We Provide Access to Capital Lease purchasing, bank financing, federal tax incentives, state/utility rebates, and energy cost reductions help provide the means to integrate energy-saving solutions.

Transformational change can be created through behavioral economics, which includes changing behaviors of people, and rewarding this changed behavior with economic benefits. Education is the key to changing behaviors, and education evolves through research. Aligning research and education with solutions that promote positive change is the key to our needed transformation. princetongreen.org is focused on educating our clients as well as our children because transformational change, in this context, is generational. Educating our children regarding environmentally conscious living enables them to bring forth this knowledge into their own lives as they transition to become an active contributor to society. Additionally, and equally as important, educating our children brings with it a new level of accountability for ourselves.   princetongreen.org is also focused on education as a client industry. Higher education is dedicated to “greening their campuses”, which is supported by a climate commitment letter signed by many Presidents of colleges and universities across the United States. K-12 is also focused on having “green schools.” Older schools are being upgraded to become more energy efficient, and new schools are being built with energy efficient strategies seamlessly integrated into their functionality and design. Many aspire to have their schools LEED certified through the USGBC, and we assist them in meeting criteria in the process. Working directly with schools and institutions enables us to not only improve the physical learning environment, but help to educate the students within those walls regarding environmental consciousness.   For more information, contact info@princetongreen.org.

We find mistakes, then share the savings.

Organizations in all industries rely on our technical expertise, objective advice and turnkey outsourcing options to curb utility and telecom/IT overspending, returning those dollars to their “bottom line�.

Natural Gas/Electricity Water/Sewer Telecom/IT/Wireless Procurement

We offer flexible engagement options from "shared savings" to pure retainer to fit the client preferences of Fortune 500s, small and mid-sized organizations.

We recapture dollars mistakenly spent, while reducing your fixed expenses going forward.

This is a risk free service since we only get paid when we find you savings. If we don’t find you savings, then you owe us nothing.

taking a closer look will save you money.


Roughly 98% of the time we find billing errors. Roughly 90% of the time, errors are in favor of the service provider, not yours. More than 75% of the time we can lower your utility and/or telecom costs.

In today’s marketplace, companies, organizations and government entities can’t afford to waste money in needless ways.  And, the blatant reality is that billing errors are at an all-time high.  Furthermore, it’s interesting, and rather odd, that the billing errors we find happen to be 90%+ of the time in favor of the provider. A comprehensive energy and telecom bill audit leads to maximum expense reduction or containment. Since our inception, we have successfully audited more than 10,000 utility and telecom accounts nationwide. In 2008 alone, we have managed over $325m in energy spending. Because we work for you and not the utility companies or government, your bottom line results are our only focus. In addition, since electricity rate caps are currently expiring in Pennsylvania and other states, we can now shop for our local client’s electricity needs and assist them to secure the best available price.   For more information, contact bill_audits@princetongreen.org.

Better understand your Fuel, Electricity, Water, Sewer, and Telecom with Energy Efficiency & EPACT Building Audits.

We have found that utility and telecom bills are intentionally designed to be difficult to read and analyze.  Intimate expertise is required to be proficient at gaining clarity as to whether you're being billed accurately.


Understanding Your Energy Usage. Virtually every building has energy inefficiencies. Throughout the princetongreen solutions network there are energy auditing services companies. These expert service companies provide independent energy auditing. An independent energy audit consists of a complete property inspection to identify areas for energy efficiency improvement.    They perform an economic analysis of all of their recommendations to determine payback time and total return on investment (ROI).  They tend to prioritize those solutions that have the greatest economic impact, while helping the environment.   Description of Audit Process: - Walk the building to become familiar with all mechanical systems - Assess all other building characteristics including lighting, envelope and shading - Review 24 months of utility data - Review operating and maintenance practices   Make recommendations that: - Outline cost, benefit and ROI - Limit cash outlay by redirecting dollars already spent - Maximize maintenance and operation efficiencies - Update systems to utilize energy saving technologies - Replace equipment with most energy efficient alternatives Next Steps: Based on the findings of the audit, we may be able to help you in executing the recommendations you decide to embrace.  Simply doing an audit, in most cases, is not enough. Rather, taking necessary actions to impact change is required for real savings to occur.  For more information, contact building_audits@princetongreen.org.

In certain states, the sale of energy has been “deregulated�. This means the utility is not the only place you can go to buy your energy. In fact, the utility is now considered to be the provider of last resort or default provider. * * http://www.state.nj.us/bpu/divisions/energy/bgs.html http://www.puc.state.pa.us/electric/

pg.promise Our Promise of Performance: savings + incentives will cover cost within 5 years.

Our Promise of Performance is our guarantee that signifies the confidence we have in our recommendations to clients regarding our energy conservation solutions.  Many energy companies make strong claims about how their services and/or technologies will save you power and money; but too few of these companies back their claims with their own cash. With respect to our energy conservation technologies, we guarantee they will generate at least an annualized return on investment of 20%, or we'll make up the difference.  In essence, the technologies that we recommend will pay for themselves within 5 years, and in most cases it will take less than 3 years. Energy generation technologies are not a part of this promise, as their returns vary greatly based on the specific application.  And, because current building efficiencies vary, Our Promise of Performance may not apply to every project.   Upon conducting a thorough site assessment, or comprehensive energy building audit, we will assess ways for you to save energy, save money and save the planet.  Depending  upon the percentage of the building we’re addressing and its current level of efficiency, we will determine if your project qualifies, and for which technologies. In any event, you can rest assured that princetongreen.org will always have your best interest in conjunction with our promise to simply save energy. every day.


thanks for visiting, and we look forward to working together.
