We like to think that we have put together a pretty exceptional group of people.

Sort of like a Swiss army knife, each part of our team brings their own particular expertise to Element47.

Our guys are accomplished professionals who come from diverse backgrounds in research, retail, industrial, facilities management, finance, and accounting.

Together, they create a team like no other in the energy management industry. A team of individuals who have walked in your shoes and know your business at a DNA level.

We also happen to know the energy management and solar power business unlike any other company out there and save our clients a load of cash.

Cash that never should have left your account in the first place.

The money your electricity retailer does not need. Money that you can use to run and grow your business.

The fact is, you will be amazed at what we can accomplish.

“The guys at Element47 are an elite team. They are quick, nimble, and always get the job done with impressive results. Their first- hand experience in the field is second to none. They represent the best in the industry.”

Aside from that, we are passionate business owners, just like you. We have made the profits and worried over the expenses. We understand business and what it takes to survive and succeed.

We have come up the hard way and know firsthand the meaning and value of work and dedication.
