Testimonials: Veregy, Formerly Midstate Energy and UES
Midstate Energy is currently involved in an extensive project to provide our school district with upgraded energy conservation measures (LED lighting, low-flow plumbing, and HVAC systems) at 14 school sites and our district office administration building. I was extremely impressed with the expertise Midstate Energy’s team provided in pre-planning for this project. That initial work involved extensive study, investigation, and recommendations regarding our current systems and a thorough, yet understandable, explanation as to how we could improve our energy efficiencies. Midstate Energy also brought a wealth of information, knowledge, and expertise about options to finance our project costs, which would have otherwise been a complexity beyond the knowledge and expertise of our in-district team. Now that we are implementing the project, Midstate Energy has again impressed with its ability to provide project management for installation of the energy conservation measures. Its team of project managers and site supervisors has done an outstanding job installing equipment in the least disruptive manner at 14 active school sites.
Our project with Midstate Energy Included mechanical, building energy management systems and integration, lighting, and water conservation upgrades. Midstate leadership was in constant communication with district leadership, and Midstate supported the district beyond our high expectations for communication, collaboration, and outcomes. Midstate remained thoroughly engage in assisting the Tucson Unified School District with service, planning, data analysis, and uncovering additional needs that have greatly appreciated our District. The benefits of working with a local Arizona company have allowed us consistent communication, great service, local economic benefits and a much better value for our community. Midstate Energy is an asset, supportive and a true partner to Tucson Unified School District.
I have worked with a variety of electrical and energy service providers over many years of school business. I have found the top companies are fairly competitive in term of technical expertise. However, Urban Energy Solutions clearly separates itself from the pack when looking at the quality of the service. We had one instance where an old building that was crowded over capacity lose power. We scrambled trying to figure out how and where we could relocate students. We called Urban Energy as our go-to for support in this area, and they were at the campus within the hour. They got us back up and running, and school was able to return to normal. In another instance, we had a project that called for an impossible deadline. Several providers told us they couldn’t meet the timeline and in their expert opinion, no one could! Urban Energy accepted the challenge and completed the project on time and with impeccable results. We have been more than impressed with its service, expertise, attention to detail, and comprehension of what it takes to be a true business partner.
I would recommend Midstate Energy to any Arizona school district interested in reducing its energy consumption and/or seeking to make capital improvements. Recently, three of our schools were recognized for being Energy Star efficient, and that can be attributable to Midstate Energy’s support.
