Clearesult Consulting, an Austin based energy-efficiency company, is occupying space in a former Alltel building in the Little Rock Riverdale area.
Clearesult, which started in 2007, is a partner with electricity provider Entergy Arkansas and gas utility CenterPoint Energy. Clearesult works with the two utilities to implement energy-efficiency programs in residences as well as industrial and commercial clients.
The company employs 38 in total and plans to add 6 more positions this year. Further expansion is planned for 2013, the company said.
Earlier Wednesday (July 11), Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola presided over a ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome the new business to the capital city.
“It’s good to see these buildings reoccupied, especially with a technology that’s so important to our future,” he said. “The city of Little Rock is working with Entergy Arkansas and
CenterPoint Energy through Clearesult to move towards more energy efficient measures. We want to assure the citizens of Little Rock that the money they us to run the city is spent wisely.”
Clearesult's business model is to partner with utility clients to provide customized offerings of technical and financial resources for residential, institutional and commercial customers, as well as strategies that take advantage of renewable energy sources and meet legislative requirements in certain states.
“We are excited about the expansion, but I want to emphasize that we wouldn’t be here without the dedication and vision of Entergy Arkansas and CenterPoint in helping their customers save money through energy efficiency,” said Jeremy Townsend, Director of Programs for Clearesult in Arkansas. “We are proud to be consultants in an area that is so vital to the future of our state.”
