ConnectIT Service Is Now Elevant – Providing Building Efficiency Solutions
Innovative Energy Efficiency Brand ConnectIT Undergoes Major Rebrand
DENVER, May 12, 2020 — Today, the company known nationwide as ConnectIT Service announces it is now Elevant – a building efficiency solutions provider.
The name change reflects the rapid growth and evolution of the company that hit the market in 2016 with its innovative introduction of IT to the energy services industry, and now offers a full line of building efficiency solutions. In four short years, the company has surpassed the legacy ESCO environment, bringing welcome change for the businesses who continue to demand a more efficient and engaging built environment.
“We’ve experienced a lot of growth in the last year. And as a result, our capabilities – and our vision for the future – have expanded as well,” said Elevant Founder and President Will Gentry. “That fast growth combined with an inventive culture has led us down a truly remarkable path. Today, we’re much more than energy efficiency. Elevant creates environments for people, businesses, and buildings to thrive.
By focusing on profitability and overall client goals, Elevant has become one of the fastest innovating companies in Denver. The company’s unique technology skillset delivers proven, profitable efficiency solutions in the built-space.
The results of Elevant’s network connected building solutions are impressive, and, most importantly, quantifiable. Network connected lighting can reduce utility waste by 82%. Smart Thermostat solutions have decreased HVAC costs by 21%. Network connected plugs and sensors integrate to reduce energy waste by up to 67% for connected devices. With cash-flow positive implementations, building owners can significantly improve NOI and increase building value by millions.
“Quantifying impact has become essential for building owners and occupants,” said Gentry. “We can meter the efficiency created by our solutions and measure it as accurately as the utility measures energy consumed,” says Gentry. “This means efficiency can now be guaranteed, transacted on and turned into a profit center for our clients.”
Elevant’s energy efficiency metering solution enables building owners to transform their ceiling into a profit center, while building occupants benefit from improved spaces and lower utility costs.
“Energy saved is energy generated, so when you can accurately measure energy efficiency, building owners are able to transact on it. Solving the split-inventive problem has delivered the most valuable business case to our clients, creating new revenue streams for building owners,” Gentry said.
Elevant Answers the Needs of Today’s Buildings
“We were super excited to see that the overall experience paid for itself in just a few short months. It’s amazing that not everybody is doing these upgrades; they should be done across the country. The upgrade was a no-brainer after we saw the amount we were going to get back in the rebate as well as the low overall expense of just putting them in, and the ease to have it happen. ” – Kirk Byles, CEO of Freewave
