The Mendota Group brings to its projects broad perspective and deep insights, whether the audience is executives, managers, practitioners, or customers. 

We provide expert support to utility, government, tribal, and non-profit clients in designing, implementing, and evaluating projects and programs that improve customer energy efficiency and acclerate the shift toward cleaner energy sources.

Support takes many forms:

  • serving as temporary utility energy efficiency program staff
  • leading stakeholder groups tasked with developing regulations to implement new clean energy laws
  • modernizing a state’s utility energy efficiency cost-effectiveness models
  • developing software that serves as a customer interface for a utility program initiated by a governor’s emergency declaration to reduce energy use and keep the lights on (and running the program on behalf of the utility)
  • leading a utility’s effort to create an 8-year forward-looking energy efficiency “business plan” that describes how the utility plans to advance energy efficiency for all customer sectors (and produce a highly stylized version of the report for regulators)
  • helping a tribal government that aims to become the nation’s first net-zero (carbon) tribal community.
