We’ve earned the trust of large energy companies too. Verde is a qualified trade ally for the ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program.

After I bought my coffee shop, I had old lighting, outdated thermostats, and old equipment. I knew that I needed to do research on new products to improve the lighting and their savings, source products, and hire a contractor to do the work. Verde Solutions approached me and did all of that work, in addition to providing rebates from the utility that I was not aware of. After working with Verde, the space was brighter and our energy costs were significantly lower.

Verde Who? About the founder

While serving as a firefighter on the North Shore of Chicago, Jamie saw how much energy was wasted by leaving lights on overnight in the firehouse. He ran calculations and aspired to find a way to both save energy and reduce costs. Shortly thereafter, Verde was born.

It hasn’t been without its challenges; Verde hasn’t always been the growing, trusted company it is today. In its early days, Jamie did all the work himself – from sales to customer service to installation and maintenance. Back then, Jamie could be spotted driving the family station wagon from client site to client site – often hauling a heap of hundreds of high-efficiency LED lightbulbs in the back.

In the evenings, long after his client visits were over and the kids were in bed, Jamie completed and filed his clients’ rebate paperwork himself. To this day, Jamie is proud to say that he installed Verde’s first thousand lightbulbs with his own two hands.

Saving clients money through energy efficiency and a keen understanding of energy rebate programs has always been Jamie’s passion – and it continues to be so today.

To find out how Verde can make positive change that everyone in your organization can feel good about, give us a call to schedule a no-obligation, complimentary energy evaluation.
