Provide Needed Resources

If you have ever tried to execute an energy project for your campus buildings, you know how challenging it can be. First, you have to find the time. Then, you need to build consensus. Next, you need to identify trustworthy partners, vet a constantly changing list of technologies, worry if you’re getting the best price, and find the best way to get the project funded and installed. Oh, and that’s before the presentations to the parish council, finance council, buildings & grounds committee and anyone else who has a say in what projects take place. In short – it can be arduous and time consuming.

Energy Efficiency Technology Subscription

Why own a new boiler, new LED lighting, and an upgraded HVAC system to reduce your electricity consumption? Why be responsible for all of the capital required to pay for that installation?

Catholic Energies enables you to subscribe to those technologies as a service rather than a capital expense. All future maintenance and warranties are taken care of for you. You pay a fixed monthly operating expense for that installed technology service. 

Provide Education and Advocacy

As a program of the Catholic Climate Covenant, Catholic Energies has access to a library of educational materials developed over a dozen years. Understanding that each Catholic campus is unique, we will work with you to determine how to approach educating your campus stakeholders about the projects you are installing that reduce environmental degradation and illustrate fiscal responsibility.
