Magniture Systems integrates proven technologies that work with a facility’s existing infrastructure to reduce power consumption, improve equipment efficiency and provide actionable intelligence to help companies manage their energy use.
kWhOURS, Inc. is leading the charge to transform the commercial and industrial energy auditing industries. We were founded because the status quo of energy auditing was too cumbersome of a process and did not properly leverage skilled engineers’ expertise to meet the growing demand for energy efficiency. Our team of energy professionals and software developers have been tirelessly working with the goal of simplifying the data collection process; organize hundreds of pages of notes, lead the inexperienced user through a predefined set of questions, automatically associate photos and audio notes with the parts of the building they refer to, and quite simply, improve the field engineer’s quality of life.
