BELLEVILLE, N.J. — GREENCROWN Energy and LVR Energy & Mechanical have announced a strategic joint partnership, in order to apply the expertise of both organizations to deliver a full array of energy solutions nationwide — bridging the gap between energy and mechanical services.

“We’re very proud that LVR Energy & Mechanical has chosen to partner with us,” said Paul Errigo, director of energy projects at GREENCROWN Energy. “It’s a fantastic fit that complements each of our companies’ strengths in offering nationwide end-to-end energy solutions — including turnkey energy conservation measures (ECMs), emerging energy technologies, energy procurement, mechanical and electrical, and cogeneration systems.”

GREENCROWN is a full-service energy advisory firm specializing in energy supply cost-reduction and energy conservation measures, including the development of turnkey cogeneration systems. LVR Energy & Mechanical is known for providing critical data in the building energy assessment and audit processes, which brings to light energy waste and savings opportunities.

The overriding objective for both organizations, Errigo said, is to give their rapidly growing national clientele “every conceivable tool and technological advance they’ll need to enjoy a competitive edge in today’s rapidly changing energy landscape.”

Tom Bennett, president of Energy Services for LVR Energy & Mechanical, said, “Together, we are uniquely positioned to provide the market with the most comprehensive set of vetted emerging technology solutions available, and to make sure they carry the best return on investment for our clients."

Errigo observed that a great many companies fall behind the energy curve, which is costing them time and money. “When we are commissioned to examine and analyze an organization’s energy usage and needs, we often find that an alarming number of properties are overspending for electricity and gas without realizing it. Many of them can take advantage of the generous federal and state grants and incentives. All of this results in significant, immediate, and long-term financial and environmental benefits.

“Very often these businesses are either getting bad advice or are attempting to navigate the intricate energy markets on their own. Both can be very costly,” he continued. “The truth is that businesses actually have more ability to lower their energy costs than they may know.”

According to Errigo, GREENCROWN can now provide expert concept-to-completion project management; audit-and-survey specification; financial analysis; labor and installation; and rebate administration, among other things.
