Since 2011, ERI’s guiding principle has underscored engineering, imagination and resolve to develop a sustainable future for our planet.
Owner and Principal, Eric Noller, founded ERI from his Marin County apartment with his first child on the way. The approaching birth of his son deepened Eric’s resolve to start a venture that would positively improve our environment. The magnitude of energy that society uses, the ways by which it is generated, the impacts on future generations, the potential for innovative solutions and the need for swift action – these are the challenges that inspired the creation of ERI.
With a core team of like-minded, passionate field engineers, the ERI team set off diligently to support utility energy efficiency programs in California. The team observed firsthand how these programs were evolving and wanted to help businesses more easily navigate the programs, supporting them with energy engineering guidance to achieve savings.
As ERI has grown, we have supported over 20 utilities across 8 states and worked with hundreds of agricultural, industrial, and commercial businesses as an energy advisor to support and accomplish their sustainability goals.
Through more than a decade of engineering experience, walking facilities and analyzing data, ERI has found that energy efficiency is one of the single most impactful investments a business can make – both for its bottom line as well as for the planet. We endeavor to uncover these energy savings opportunities for our clients so that they can achieve reductions in operating costs along with vastly improved facilities.
From our inception in 2011, the ERI team has shared a common drive to help businesses look at energy in a creative and counterintuitive way… using less to do more.
ERI maintains a broad-based team of engineers and energy professionals with a knowledge spectrum spanning various fields of technical expertise and industry segment specializations. We focus on demand-side management programs and energy engineering, with five specialized areas of expertise:
