Contemporary Energy Solutions also offers creative financing options whereby the installation costs are paid back slowly over time with the amount saved on future energy bills. "The upfront initial investment can be a big hurdle," Vlastelica admits. "They have other investments they need to make, as well, and sometimes don't have the capital to support a major overhaul. Yet it is costing them money every month not to do anything." For example, Vlastelica explains, if a company is paying $100,000 per year on lighting operating expenses, Contemporary Energy Solutions could install lights that cost only $30,000 per year to run. It would then use the $70,000 savings over time to pay back the cost of installing the lights. In many cases even after the finance payments are made, the customer is seeing a net positive cash flow each month from the massive energy savings. "When we do 'no upfront' installs, the clients are paying us back over time. The monthly finance payments are offset by their savings and they receive brand-new lighting that costs them less to operate," Vlastelica says. "We even guarantee the savings. Once prospects understand the future savings, then it is a "no-brainer in most cases," Vlastelica states. The only challenge for the company is "getting its foot in the door" and standing out in a saturated industry. "There are over 17,000 ESCO's [energy service companies] calling businesses claiming they have the latest and greatest thing. Quite frankly, many of them should not be in the business and are fly by night guys. Businesses have a hard time knowing who they can trust. Once we get in, we can show our prospects we have superior technology and are the right people to work with. Contemporary Energy Solutions works closely with clients to understand their business priorities. It also invests resources to educate clients on new trends specific to their industry. "Many times we are able to show them how besides the obvious energy savings, new lighting can help them address and improve other areas of their business such productivity, safety, and even employee retention. The company is successful because of its expertise and knowledge and repeat customers often refer peers via word of mouth, as well. "Our access to industry leading technologies at competitive price points gives us a huge advantage. We are often able to deliver recurring annual savings 20 to 50 percent higher than industry norms," Vlastelica adds. "Our process takes all the risk out of the equation for the buyer, giving them peace of mind they are making the right choice. Selecting the wrong company or technology can be a very expensive mistake in our industry.
