Testimonials: Midstate Energy
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.
Midstate was very helpful and provided excellent service. I would highly recommend Midstate to anyone looking for a contractor that will keep the client’s best interest first and foremost.
The Midstate Energy/BAS team was amazing to work with throughout the course of the expansive energy management and controls upgrades for our school district. The team worked efficiently, needed little direction, and completed projects throughout the summer with no disruptions to our daily operations. There are not words to express how smoothly and effectively this project was handled. The service was timely, responsive, and completed on schedule. The positive attitudes of everyone on the team throughout the job were an added plus to the quality of the work performed.
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.
Since 2015, the Avondale Elementary School District and Midstate have worked together to provide efficient energy to the district. We began by engaging in a $5.5 million project that provided new HVAC, interior lighting, exterior lighting, and plumbing efficiencies throughout our nine school campuses and three district buildings. Part of the project was for the district to receive energy rebates from various utilities. We were estimated to receive approximately $250,000 in rebates. Through Midstate’s efforts, we actually received more than $450,000 in rebates. Midstate has been truly wonderful to work with. I find them to be a company of integrity, with people who care about they work they do and the relationships they cultivate with our district.
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.
Midstate Energy is not just a vendor. It is a valued partner engaging with us in vital efforts to help our students achieve and succeed. It recently demonstrated this by generously supporting the Speak Up, Stand Up, Save a Life Conference to help save the lives of youth in our state. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and highly recommend them to be a part of your organization’s efforts to improve efficiency and cost savings to your bottom line.
At Saddle Mountain Unified School District, we enjoy significant savings through lighting conversion projects and energy management devices. Midstate Energy has assisted the district in being proactive in energy management. Over the years I have also used Midstate Energy to simply purchase HVAC units. Its pricing is very competitive and its engineering and installation services can’t be beat.
