3fficient works with building owners and CFOs to slash their utility costs and redirect the savings to improve their organization’s efficiency, productivity and sustainability.

We do this by taking a holistic approach to finding and unlocking cost savings hidden in buildings, utilities, vendor services, tenant behaviors and more.  For example, 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 cut demand charges in half, smart autonomous civic infrastructure that makes cities safer and smarter.  In short, we make buildings greener, energy cleaner and cities smarter.

We have already saved our clients over $1 billion (and counting).  But together, we can make fossil fuels irrelevant and save the freakin’ planet.

Our Mission

We are making sustainability the preferred choice by:

  1. providing brilliant clean tech products and services that leap frog old paradigms and status quo.
  2. making clean and sustainable the lowest cost, practical alternative – without taxing future generations.
  3. converting the built environment of yesterday into super efficient, green buildings and campuses of tomorrow – today.
  4. supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs creating local jobs that stimulate the local economy.

By doing this, we can envision a day when the world’s reliance on fossil fuels has been diminished and the crisis of climate change has been averted.  Ultimately, air pollution and water contamination will be eliminated and we can all breathe a lot easier!  Given the opportunity to energize your community, save money and the environment – the choice is easy. Do more with less! Be 3FFICIENT.

Words from our Clients

  • Wow.  These solutions are game changers.

    University President
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • We are dedicated to providing a high quality experience for our guests as well as environmental stewardship. This project accomplishes both by making our facilities better performing, more reliable and energy efficient. Thanks for the creative solutions!

  • We were really pleased how 3fficient educated us about energy efficiency, explored many options, came up with great "out of the box" solutions, and then walked us through the whole process.

    Larry Watt City of Encinitas / Director of Public Works
  • 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

    Stephen Travis Oregon Cherry Growers / Executive Vice President
