Deanna Bounds –
I have two children a son in high school and a daughter in college. I have lived in Michigan since 2002. I graduated from SDSM&T with a Chemical Engineering degree in 1995 and an MBA from Northwood University in 2006. I worked for a large chemical company for 22 years and decided it was time to leave when Jim introduced me to the owner of a small LED/utility bill auditing company for sale. We bought it and spent a year transitioning from the previous owner who was in business for more than 20 years. I’m excited about what we do and the services we provide to our customers. I have taken all my experience from the last 20+ years and used that to build a company I’m truly proud of.
Jim DeLong –
One part salesman, two parts entrepreneur, and three parts father. I have owned businesses in finance, telecom, real estate and restaurants. The last nine years I have focused on energy. As an experienced business owner, I take pride in knowing what it takes to provide the best customer service possible. Over the last 30 years, I have been lucky to call many of my customers friends. My goal is to set the standard for how to get the most out of Energeia’s customers energy dollars and implement those measures in a timely manner. In my free time, I spend as much time as I can with my family which usually means travel and golf. I cherish each and every moment with them.
Let Energeia Save You Money
And get back overages you’ve been paying for years.
Utility Bill Audits –
Utility companies leave it to the consumer to make sure their bills are correct, and most customers don’t have the time to examine every bill for errors. We will scrutinize each bill, even ones from up to four years back. If an error is found, we have the industry experience to negotiate with the utility company, and we will do the paperwork to get your money back. And if no errors are found, we will not charge you for the service!
Rate Code Analysis –
Just as it is the customers’ responsibility to make sure their bills are correct, the customer is also responsible for making sure they are being charged the correct rate. In Michigan your electricity supplier is limited by your location, but for natural gas providers, you have a choice. We can audit your natural gas consumption and suggest a new supplier if necessary.
LED Upgrade Projects –
As the cost of LED lighting equipment falls, more and more facilities managers are turning to LED to overhaul their buildings, Energeia can help design a cost-effective LED lighting plan specific to your needs. We will do a walk-through of your facility and provide you with a comprehensive estimate of equipment, labor, and recycling your old parts. We will also give you a savings report of kilowatt hours currently used compared to the estimated usage with an LED retrofit. We buy most of our lights directly from the manufacturer. We are able to pass these savings on to you since we don’t have any middleman costs added in! We also work with a network of electricians to provide a fair-price and on-time installation.
Power Factor Correction –
The power factor is the difference between the amount of power the utility company supplies and the actual amount of power the customer uses. Since you are demanding more power than you are using you face unnecessary charges on your monthly bill. Also, if your power factor drops below a certain level, your utility company may charge a penalty. Energeia will help you eliminate this charge by installing special power cleansing equipment only available through Energeia.
