We were approached by OOE to do an analysis at one of our Michigan Avenue Properties in Chicago. In the past we had always assumed that going directly to a supplier would afford us the best overall price, guidance, support and ultimately savings. OOE proved this to be untrue and blew us away with their insight and analysis. They ended up saving us nearly 30% on our annual energy spend, which amounted to over $250,000 in savings over the next 2 years. Energy is proven to be unique and it is important to have a strong ally that can help us navigate this complex process effectively.
