CTS Group is an accredited Energy Services Company (ESCO) by the National Association of Energy Service Companies (NAESCO). As an ESCO, CTS Group develops and implements turn-key, comprehensive energy efficiency projects implemented through performance-based contracts. The CTS application for NAESO-Accredited status was submitted to a committee of industry experts who are unaffiliated with any particular ESCO or any other company under consideration for accreditation. The independent committee performed a rigorous examination of our core competencies and business practices. The committee carefully reviewed the detailed documentation submitted and consulted with selected customer references. After meeting all of the high standards of NAESCO, CTS Group received accreditation.
The NAESCO review criteria includes the following: the precise nature of the applicant’s business; the range of measures and services offered to customers; the availability of a performance-based project approach; ethical business practice commitment; project engineering and design, financing, project management, operations, and maintenance capabilities; and the capability of verifying and monitoring energy cost savings.
Our accreditation by NAESCO is another assurance of our professionalism and ability to provide successful projects to our customers.
CTS is committed to continually improve energy efficiency, and the USDOE Energy Star program is one avenue that we use to meet our goal. As an ES Partner, we are able to benchmark our customer’s facilities utilizing the ES rating system to establish their energy performance on a scale of 1-100 relative to similar buildings nationwide. This information is valuable in helping to determine where areas of improvement potential exist. Only buildings with ratings of 75 or more may potentially qualify as Energy Star Buildings.
Many CTS Group projects have earned the ES rating for our customers.
