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

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • You saved us $200,000/yr. At 5% pre-tax profit margin, that's the same as generating $4,000,000 in new revenue every year! It also increases our company valuation by $1,000,000. Thank you so much!

    Corporate CFO
  • Wow.  These solutions are game changers.

    University President
  • Well done folks! Thank You for the great audits and direction for our capital improvements.

    James Butcher CBRE / General Manager (801 N. Brand, Glendale)
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 3fficient, and their innovative partners, have developed brilliant urban furniture that is completely self-powered and changing how we look at and interact with urban infrastructure.

    US Mayor
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 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
  • 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
