When the grid is up, make a profit, when the grid is down, keep power to the building

energy solutions

TimberRock Energy Solutions (TRES) works to reduce your energy consumption and provide a full microgrid solution, generating a positive revenue stream, both near and long term. Our DE-MAP™ software platform provides Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to your entire system, allowing the owner the ability to monitor and control via a secure 4G-LTE signal. The overall microgrid solution allows you to Straddle the Meter™.  While the grid is active, the microgrid is generating renewable power to send back into the grid for a profit.  When the grid is down, the microgrid automatically converts to an off-grid solution to power various portions of your building and equipment until grid power is restored.

Step 1: Retrofit

A team is deployed for a detailed energy audit. Cost-efficient LED lights and DE-MAP sensors + controls are installed to immediately reduce energy costs and collect power usage data. TRES partners with industry leaders to provide financing, an Energy Management Plan and Energy Services Agreement with an insured performance guarantee.

Step 2:  Evaluation

As energy usage data is compiled via DE-MAP, TRES data mines this information to identify areas to futher reduce energy consumption, with an initial focus on refrigeration + HVAC systems. In addition, we consider new infrastructure, including the potential deployment of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations for additional revenue creation.

Step 3:  Microgrid

After reducing energy consumption, TRES focuses on deployment of supply-side distributed energy resources that increase resiliency, sustainability and deliver grid services. Deployments include on or off-site solar panels, energy storage and generators, all of which generate their own energy and secure new long-term revenue streams.


One of the most advanced developers & operators of building-scale microgrid “fleets” in the industry, TimberRock will work with you to provide the best software and hardware solutions to meet all your energy needs.
