Not just smart, but environmentally conscious as well. The Rich Family has provided turn-key construction management, mechanical construction and energy savings solutions to small and large businesses in the greater northeast for almost 100 years. The original business was founded in 1918 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where it was involved in the development of the city's thriving boardwalk scene.
Today RICH Energy Solutions (RES) focuses on energy consumption and renewable energy sources to address the sharp reality that the cost of fuel is a serious financial consideration to most businesses and facilities. In 1995 RES performed its first energy solutions retrofit for a large warehouse and furniture complex. RES secured financing for the project and used the energy savings to cover the interest and principle of the loan and provide a positive monthly cash flow for the customer. After hundreds of these projects, RES now has the ability to quickly analyze any facility and immediately determine the suitability and savings of their programs for the customer. And the experienced staff at RES can help you navigate the various incentives and rebates available through state and federal programs to help realize additional savings. Rich Energy Systems has expanded its support of energy efficiency projects by committing to making donations to Carbonfund.org based on the volume of emission reductions they achieve on each customer's project. Now more than ever, it makes good business sense to adopt energy-efficient practices, install energy-efficient equipment, and support and install renewable energy systems. Not only will the energy improvements contribute to the economy and environment, but customers also realize bottom-line savings for their business. If you recognize the potential for huge energy savings in your building and you’re ready for bold steps to reduce your energy costs as soon as possible, talk to the Rich family today about their innovative solutions at (609) 407-2800.
