Earth911 Podcast Innovator Interview

The cost of energy-efficient upgrades prevents many businesses from reducing their environmental impacts. We talk with Al Subbloie, CEO of Budderfly, a fast-growing energy-efficiency-as-a-service company, with an audacious solution for businesses that want to be more sustainable. It pays for lighting, heating/cooling, renewable electricity sourcing, and other upgrades, then collects a share of the resulting savings. Budderfly guarantees savings to customers, earning a profit only if they succeed. We’ve talked with other forms of “sustainability-as-a-service” companies, but Budderfly is putting its capital on the line to pay for immediate energy savings.
