How CGS Operates

“It has been my pleasure to work with Commercial Green Solutions for all of my Energy Saving and Sustainability needs. I have worked with Rick West and his team for over a decade — being supplied with energy saving technologies that have truly helped the bottom lines for my properties.

I give CGS my highest endorsement. We have properties that have saved over 30% of their overall energy spend by implementing technologies sold by CGS. We will continue to partner with CGS for years to come and trust them with all of our energy questions and solutions.

There is no reason NOT to reach out to them…They do not charge for surveys or ROI calculations…. They have the solutions, they have the references and even help with creative financing where necessary. They only make money if they prove to you that you will SAVE money. Proof’s in the pudding.”

“CGS’s Rick West was quite convincing — but more importantly, all his references checked out. CGS now advises me on all things ‘sustainable’ for my entire portfolio.”

MICHAEL COLLIER
CEO Hotel Capital Inc.

“Rick and his team have always been professional. There won’t be two months go by where he won’t reach out and ask how we are doing. We have bought energy saving technology from him for years and lean on him and his company to advise us on how to best save money on utilities.”

“Commercial Green Solutions was instrumental to us for sourcing, documenting, recommending and presenting solutions for improved energy efficiencies at select properties utilizing local, state, and federal incentives. They are dogmatic at finding the low-hanging fruit as well as other green initiatives that are beneficial to their customer at low-or-no cost. More importantly, CGS does an excellent job at delivering upon those expectations.”

What CGS Delivers

“We like fast ROI’s — but fast ROI’s that also increase productivity and augment guest experience are no brainers. Ozone Laundry falls into that category.”

MICHAEL COLLIER
CEO Hotel Capital Inc.

“For our property in Mt. Arlington, NJ. Rick was proactive in sourcing the idea of utilizing rebates we did not know were available to us and presented it to us along with the supporting documentation for the energy savings, products and installation plan for this property to receive a free lighting bulb upgrade throughout the property that was valued in excess of $33k for product and installation. This measure dramatically reduced the electric consumption and annual operating cost.”

CLINT EXLEY
Director Capital Projects

“There is no reason that any hotel that does its own laundry should not have Ozone. I tell everyone who will listen they should do this tech. Our natural gas bill and water/sewer bill were noticeably different once the unit was installed. This technology reduces all three simultaneously.”

MIKE SZUDARSKI
General Manager Embassy Suites, Schaumburg, IL

“People don’t realize how many utility dollars are spent in the laundry. But we easily save $20,000 a year by using Ozone Laundry. Rick and his team have always been professional, and he still reaches out years after the sale. There is no reason that everyone on the Islands (Hawaiian) should NOT have this technology. Therms, electricity and water/sewer are not cheap here — this technology reduces all three…”
