Company History

3fficient was founded in 2010 to provide energy project development and building efficiency services. Shortly thereafter, we acquired PE Consulting, an internationally recognized, award winning green engineering firm that was started in 1994.  Today, 3fficient has grown into a leading clean tech company with game changing products and services serving several continents.

We have developed smart meters that monitor the energy pulse of every circuit in buildings, invisible window insulation that is 300% better than plastic tints, fully wireless building automation that affords “peel and stick” configurations, sustainable ice batteries that flatten power demand while saving energy, smart autonomous civic infrastructure that makes cities safer and smarter.  We have already saved our business clients over $1 billion in annual operating costs.  But together, we can make the world safer, healthier and more sustainable.

The 3fficient Team

Our team’s background ranges from building scientists, chemical engineers and software engineers to developers, construction experts, financiers and business managers.  Our diverse team and partners match our diverse solutions and applications.  While some of our technologies are recent breakthroughs, others have been developed over the last 30 years by award winning American, European and Asian scientists. Our expertise in energy and green building services exceeds 30 years.

Words from our Clients

  • People think that solar is too expensive or intermittent.  3fficient’s FreeCharge is something people connect with in a unique way.  They learn first hand that solar energy can be very reliable and should really be the primary fuel of choice for all our power needs.

    Arts Council
  • The way 3fficient has aggregated so much into their FreeCharge devices really saves us a lot of money while increasing safety and customer engagement.  This is a whole new paradigm.

    Transit Agency / CTO
  • We were fighting an uphill battle against rising utility costs and low cost foreign competitors. Your analysis of our operations and the solutions to lower our water usage by 95% will make a huge difference to our competitiveness.

    Stephen Travis Oregon Cherry Growers / Executive Vice President
  • Even though this was a small project, you guys performed really well and gave us the attention and expertise deserving of a much larger project. Thanks!

    Jeff Terhoeve Grubb and Ellis / Property Manager 700 N Central, Glendale
  • This project went real well, our building looks better and it saved us a lot of money.

    Spence Wilson Transwestern Voit / Property Manager, 330 North Brand
  • Thanks for the help fellas. Business is very competitive and this projects helps us be competitive and more environmentally friendly. Good Job.

    Bill Rittwage Cal Offset Printer / Owner
  • Our facility was in such disrepair, we were seriously considering tearing it down. With your retrofits, the comfort is 100% improved. Now we can use the capital funds (we never seem to have enough of) elsewhere.

    Bob Driffill YMCA Health & Fitness Facility / General Manager
  • Our officers can’t be everywhere at once, especially during or after an emergency, like a storm or earthquake.  “3fficient’s FreeCharge solutions provide power, public safety, lighting and communications when and where its needed most - in public spaces and 24/7/365 - even when the power grid is down.

    Chief of Police
  • Your company's knowledge of LEED requirements is a refreshing change from the smoke screen that goes up when talking to firms with little experience.  Your fees were appropriate to the requirements and you completed the project in a timely manner.  Your assistance to our newly minted LEED AP was much appreciated.

    Stephen Johnson MW Services / SVP
  • We have used your solar lockers for a few events that we have been sponsors of now and each time they have proven to be amazing! The last event was a 4 day music festival, where we used two of the charging stations. The charging lockers were completely full after 12 minutes and remained full for the entirety of the festival! Your charging stations are a must for all of our activation areas!

    Samantha Kohn Alex & Ani / Event Marketing Manager
  • This is an excellent project which has greatly reduced our operating costs and control, extended the life of our equipment and most importantly improved guest comfort. Thanks for the creative ideas and making my job easier!

    Dennis Kinsley Starwood Hotels / Director of Engineering, Sheraton Harbor Island, San Diego
  • As a global manufacturer of building materials, we spend several hundred million a year on energy. So the slightest fluctuation wreaks havoc on our budgeting and materials prices. We are thankful for your help on our global energy management team and development of our enterprise-wide, real-time energy management program.

    Gary Groner Johns Manville / Global Energy Manager
  • Thanks for all the hard work. As soon as the new owners get settled, I will push to get your energy audits approved and implemented.

    Mike Cross Galleria Malls-Glendale Galleria / Property Manager
  • Good job guys. The project was completed ahead of schedule and no change orders. Even when a tenant complained about a minor issue, you really stepped up to the plate and made them very happy.

    Darla Szala 505 N Brand / Property Manager
  • We selected you because of your experience and credentials and most importantly, your attention to detail and diligence. We have expanded our contract with your firm because of your cost effective, high quality work and the loyalty you have to customer focus. Thank You.

    Leeanne Uhler Riverside Public Utilities
  • As a Sustainability Advisor to schools and businesses, I am pleased to recommend your charging stations. The students and faculty at St. John's Prep School were really excited about the charging stations. Students and faculty were fascinated with the technology and that they could charge their devices using solar power and batteries. What a great education forum.

    Lisa Lillelund Saint John's Prep School
  • Thanks to your project, we won the BOMA award again. Oh yeah, our lighting and HVAC bills have gone way down too. Well done!

    Jan Church SHM Partners / Property Manager
  • Your team provided a direction that was in line with our specific needs. The project leverages our natural Southern California resources, and saves taxpayers money on our already tight budgets.

    Don Bradley Cathedral City / City Manager
  • The public should be able to exercise and enjoy the outdoors day or night.  But providing lighting in parks, trails and transit stops is too expensive.  3fficient’s FreeCharge products provides lighting and many public safety services to any urban or remote locations where the sun might shine.

    Parks & Rec Director
  • You guys sure turned our master planning upside down (in a positive way). It looks like we'll be a lot more efficient and provide service much more reliably than we have in the past and save more money than each year before.

    Mike Swanson Glendale Adventist Medical Center / Director, Operations (retired)
