Wasted energy equals wasted profit

Yet, this is the reality facing many industrial companies, because cutting energy waste is hard.


  • It’s not your priority.
  • It’s not your core competency.
  • Your opportunities vary from site to site.
  • It requires your people to change.

It’s no wonder so many companies resign themselves to simply paying the utility bill every month and focusing their time and attention elsewhere.

Cascade works with the companies that don’t accept this reality. Our customers leverage Cascade’s industrial energy management services to focus on their energy use with the goals of saving money and boosting profits, just like they do in the other parts of their business.
