Energy Solutions for Your Business

Apogee understands that commercial customers are busy and difficult to engage. We can help utilities cost-effectively engage and provide valuable information to utility staff, business owners, and operators educating them on their energy use and empowering them to make smart choices.


Apogee’s Commercial Energy Calculator is designed to help key account and national account managers, commercial call center members, and small to medium commercial customers engage. The goal is to engage with a solution that increases customer satisfaction, promotes programs, and transforms the relationship between the utility and its commercial customers. The commercial audit will help customers understand, manage, and even predict their energy costs.

Utilities can leverage Apogee’s personized proactive outbound communications to increase exposure and encourage participation in programs such as commercial cooking, water heating, and swimming pool heating.
