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 helped develop 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

  • 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
  • This was a marquis project, not just for Port Hueneme, but for the entire US Navy. While the energy savings are substantial, even greater value will be realized through the replication and adoption of your innovative "net zero energy" building retrofit by other public and private sector organizations. Your engineering is certainly industry leading. Thanks for the leadership and service.

    Chris Karandang US Navy / Port Hueneme (Home of the Sea Bees)
  • 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
  • This project saved us more than we expected. Thanks for the hard work and keeping the subcontractors on time. Tenant comfort and reliability has improved. That makes my job more enjoyable.

    Brad Heath CBRE / Property Manager, 101 N Brand, Glendale
  • 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
  • This was an outstanding project from start to finish. Well done team. We will definitely consult with you again in the future.

    John Hickman City of Glendale / Director of Public Works
  • 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)
  • 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
  • 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
  • Getting power to tight urban locations or remote locations is expensive and a big hassle.  3fficient’s FreeCharge products eliminate the high costs and hassles of bringing and maintaining power to new or remote locations.

    Parks and Trails Director
  • In addition to the energy and maintenance savings, comfort (and productivity) of our employees has been greatly improved. Thanks for fixing our buildings and helping us keep our operating costs down. Great job team!

    Bill Lawrence VidFilm / Controller
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 project was very beneficial to us. Your expertise helped us develop an energy master plan while saving energy and building in additional automation so we can respond to different utility price signals immediately.

    Bob Markham City of Pasadena / Public Works Administrator
  • 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 management of the Load Curtailment (Demand Response) Program achieved phenomenal results and was a tremendous help to avoid blackouts for thousands of customers in our area (and the state). Above all, you treated our customers like gold working seamlessly as part of our team.

    Don Pappe Pasadena Water & Power / Director
  • 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
  • Your team has really helped us shave a bundle off our renovation plans, not to mention lowering future energy costs and improving tenant comfort.

    All the Doctors at Physicians Group Glendale Medical Office / All the Doctors
  • 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
