Cascade Energy Inc. was formed in 1993 when Marcus Wilcox, Rob Morton, and Mike McDevitt left Braco Energy Services to start their own consulting business. These founding principals got a loan from US Bank, some desks from Tektronix, and some state-of-the-art computers (66 Mhx 486s) and hung up their shingle.
Our first contracts were for performing energy audits for local utilities PacifiCorp and Portland General Electric. Cascade was profitable that year and has been profitable every year since.
In 1998, we hired our first employee engineer—Dan Brown—after receiving a large research grant from Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, and we have experienced steady growth since then. In 2003, we performed our first national-scale Kaizen Blitz (as we call it now) for a leading grocery customer, and in 2005 we developed our first national multipronged energy-management program, for SYSCO Corporation.
Cascade’s most recent work includes the operation of energy management services for multiple national and regional clients. In addition, we have moved into the design, roll-out, and execution of innovative efficiency programs for Northwest utility companies (through Energy Trust of Oregon and others). In 2009, Bonneville Power Administration awarded Cascade’s team the contract to design and manage its entire Energy Smart Industrial program across four Western states.
The challenges of operating an industrial facility are many. Dealing with rising electricity bills, high capital costs, system reliability, complex operations, and emerging technologies sometimes requires outside expertise and manpower. Where can you turn to identify significant opportunities to reduce energy use and costs and find an optimal solution? The highly-regarded engineers at Cascade.
Since 1993, we have helped clients in many industries—from food processing and distribution to wood and metal products to oil and gas—optimize their refrigeration, compressed-air, fan-and-pump, hydraulic, and chilled-water systems.
