Energy Services

Why Energy ?

The need for this service was identified from what we heard from clients:

  • Spending on energy is typically one of their top 3 expenses!
  • CSPSdid extensive due diligence to find and select our energy experts

CSPSHelps Businesses Lower Energy Use and Costs!

A range of surprisingly realistic and affordable solutions are available

Key CSPSEnergy Offerings:

        • Electricity Supply
        • Energy Decisions Analysis
        • Renewable Energy Sources

electricity supply

Electricity Supply

Currently in certain markets,CSPS can supply commercial clients with electricity at extremely attractive rates

Meaningful Savings are Available!

Process to realize these savings is simple, straightforward and free:

  • Give CSPS your latest utility bill (all pages received every month)
  • A free comparative analysis to our option is provided
  • CSPS guides you through the seamless steps to switch to more affordable electricity

Randal T. Noah, Neace Lukens, 513-907-7483

energy decisions analysis

Energy Decisions Analysis

CSPS’comprehensive energy decisions approach provides businesses the necessary information and advice to improve their energy use and costs

CSPS’energy professionals review and analyze energy use providing

  • Choices to reduce electricity and natural gas bills
  • Custom solutions to optimize energy consumption

This no cost, no obligation analysis and consultation includes:

  • Rate review and audit
  • Analysis of electricity and natural gas use and costs
  • Identification of the most cost effective sources of electricity and/or natural gas
  • Specific recommendations addressing energy demand

To initiate this analysis and consultation, CSPS needs copies of:

  • The latest utility bill(s) [all pages received every month]
  • All relevant contracts for electricity and/or natural gas

National Developer, Owner and Manager of Neighborhood Shopping Centers

CSPSdeveloped a comprehensive plan that gave this shopping center operator the means to create a new profit center by supplying electricity to its tenants while also reducing its overall energy spend by significantly lowering its energy costs

Regional Multi-Unit Nursing Home Operator

In a wide ranging review of all of this operator’s nursing homes, CSPS developed a multi-faceted solution plan which:

  • Lowered the total company electricity bill by over $122,000 by switching to our electricity supplier
  • Facilitated the needed replacement of several roofs with solar installations to provide additional cost savings through access to extremely inexpensive renewable energy

renewable energy

Renewable Energy

With advances in technology and expansion of incentive programs, the commercial use of renewable energy, particularly solar, is rising in the US. CSPSaddresses this increased demand with solutions that not only lower energy costs but are surprisingly affordable.

Opportunities in Renewable Energy

With proper planning, a new solar installation can be a realistic means to substantially and permanently reduce energy costs with a “green” energy source.


CSPS’ experts have and can develop solar equipment packages that integrate the appropriate technology and all the available incentive, rebate and financing programs to make it financially viable

Currently there are several incentive programs available including a Federal grant that pays 30% of the value of the installation in cash, so long as it begins in 2011.

cost segregation

Cost Segregation

Studies more accurately classify all of a commercial property’s components which:

  • Maximizes the tax deductions from accelerated depreciation
  • Lowers reportable income to reduce current tax liabilities
  • AND, if done properly provides additional tax deductions when long-term assets are replaced

Minimum Requirements to Consider/Do Cost Segregation

  • Pay Federal Income Taxes
  • Have a Building (ex land) with a value of $1 million or more

Meet these requirements?

  • Give CSPS your latest tax depreciation schedule
  • A free benefit analysis detailing the benefits of a study will be prepared

ADDITIONAL WRITE-OFFs:Unlike most studies, a CSPS study is fully detailed, classifying all building components. This provides added benefits as any 39-year component can be written off when replaced. Over a commercial property's depreciable life, up to 30% of 39-year assets are replaced.

The Advantages Of CSPS Approach

Method: Detailed Engineering-Based Studies, the most stringent method

Experience and Expertise, CSPSTeam:

  • Has completed over 8,000 studies
  • Helped IRS develop the Audit Guide to Cost Segregation (aka the “rules”)
  • Includes the only “cost segregation expert” recognized by US tax courts

Classify the Entire Building, Which Means :

  • Maximum accelerated depreciation identified, thus maximum allowable deductions
  • A sizable added benefit in the ability to writeoff long term assets when retired

Outstanding Audit Record & Protection:

  • In all studies, only one instance of a give back to IRS (less than 2% of claim)
  • CSPSstands behind its work and will defend with IRS (if needed)

actual results

Global Packaging Manufacturer

In assignments byCSPSfor an international light manufacturer were studies of:

  • An acquired, recently renovated $6.3 million plant which yielded first five year cash benefits of over $600,000 for an ROI of 32:1, and two facilities worth $4.2 million producing cash benefits of $600,000+, an ROI of 23:1

Apartment Complex

CSPSconducted a study on a multi-family owner’s recently acquired $4.1 million property, producing first five year cash benefits of nearly $320,000, a 29:1 ROI

Medical Office Complex

CSPSconducted two studies of the facilities of a major regional physician practice:

  • In the original assignment on its $9.4 million headquarters property, the CSPS study yielded first five year cash benefits of over $800,000 for an ROI of 41:1, while a follow on study of the facility’s $2.5 million addition produced another $250,000 in cash benefits

Data Center and Offices

A CSPSstudy for a newly built $16.6 million data center/office combination delivered $835,000 in five year cash benefits and a 42:1 ROI
