Testimonials

-David Bennett-
Executive Director
Metropolitan Mayors Caucus

"The 360 Energy Group has been a valued partner in helping the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus implement the Public Sector Energy Efficiency Grant Program that is available through Illinois Energy Now in the Chicago region. Through this program, their team has provided the technical expertise many local governments may not otherwise have in order to identify potential projects, complete the necessary grant requests, leverage additional funding if needed and provide oversight of the projects through completion. This soup to nuts approach has resulted in the successful completion of nearly 400 energy efficiency projects in 100 municipalities, parks, schools, libraries, townships and other local governments in our region.
