The Energy Guy
Stephen Todd is the Energy Guy. He works with owners and managers of commercial buildings to reduce their operating expenses.
He designs custom, tailor-made strategies his clients use to reduce utility costs, typically by tens of thousands of dollars per year. With his unique strategies, he’s able to do this with no additional capital investment required by the owners.
He also provides “headache relief” as the go-to guy to resolve problems with HVAC, Building Automation, Lighting, and Lighting Control Systems in buildings.
Stephen organized EnergyGuy LLC in 2012, but he’s been The Energy Guy much longer. You might say energy conservation and sustainability are in his blood. His passion is working with building managers to develop strategies for energy conservation that require no additional capital investment.
Stephen’s experience with conservation and sustainability includes teaming with Building Success as an energy and sustainability consultant beginning in 2008. He’s been on the Minnesota chapter of the US Green Building Council’s Board of Directors since 2010.
Stephen’s corporate life includes time spent with several companies. He was with Egan Company as their Director of Energy Services Division for three years (2009 – 2012). Before that, he served as the Vice President of Energy Services and Marketing for UHL Company from 2003 to 2009.
Stephen also spent two years in the Service Sales Engineering organization within Trane (2001 – 2003), and five years with Carrier Corporation as a Service Sales Engineer in Branch Management (1996 – 2001)
