About Power TakeOff

Power TakeOff is a software and implementation company driven by making an environmental impact by helping business customers reduce their energy consumption. Since its founding in 2007, Power TakeOff’s products and services have centered around three core competencies, which still apply today: 1) to exclusively serve and specialize in the non-residential market, 2) the use of interval (daily, hourly, 15, or 1 minute) electric data to help this market better understand and reduce usage, 3) to use software and analytics as tools to cost-effectively deliver services at utility-scale. While our end-user customers are businesses, much of our work is generated from utility-scale contracts with the likes of Xcel Energy, Southern California Edison, and ComEd, among others.

Over the past two years, Power TakeOff was quantitatively able to help its customers reduce electricity equivalent to what 2,250 houses or 70 railcars of coal use in a year. Goals for 2020 are to triple this impact, with even more upcoming opportunities to expand this impact. 


We’re a fast-moving, nimble, and growing company with a need for a self-motivated energy efficiency enthusiast who enjoys helping businesses reduce energy usage. We look forward to your interest and the opportunity to get to know you.
