"As the manager of facilities with 200 staff members taking care of transportation, maintenance, energy management, and health and safety, I wear many hats. I quickly realized that to meet our goals of reducing energy costs and our carbon footprint, we’d need some professionals on board. The Rede team is all about proactively implementing energy solutions—they see a gap—and they take care of it, from planning and overseeing major capital upgrades, to student engagement, to generating meaningful reports. I’ve come to rely on Rede Energy, and the bottom line savings have been significant year over year."

"Rede has worked with us on several successful school energy projects over the course of five years or more. Because of the team’s expertise and familiarity with our buildings and systems, we’ve come to rely on its responsiveness and guidance—and we’d hate to lose that. We find everyone at Rede approachable, down-to-earth, and accommodating, and this has allowed us to build a very comfortable working relationship together and learn much more than we expected. We look forward to being able to count on Rede’s team of professionals in the years to come.      "

"Matthew Redekopp and the Rede team were a terrific asset for SD59 in getting our school energy management program underway. We really appreciated their depth of knowledge, innovative solutions, and positive approach. It was good to execute on a prioritized plan that would deliver tangible savings and pay-backs."

Gerry Slykhuis, Secretary Treasurer
Peace River South School District #59, Dawson Creek, BC

"I really appreciated Matthew Redekopp’s confident, straight-forward responses to my questions from our first meeting. We believed we had done a pretty good job at school energy management and conservation ourselves, so we challenged the Rede team to do even better! We were delighted when it did—it has resulted in significant energy cost reductions, improved mechanical/HVAC technology, and a reduction in our school carbon footprint. We are meeting all our goals. It’s a pleasure to work with such passionate professionals who make a personal commitment to our joint successes. I am happy to recommend Rede to fellow school district facility directors."

"The comprehensive energy studies produced by Rede Energy Solutions Ltd. have played a vital role in helping our district achieve its school energy conservation targets. Their work has successfully helped us reduce our greenhouse gasses, contributed to our capital grant applications, and helped us attain substantial operational savings. I would recommend their team to anyone interested in meaningfully improving their organization’s environmental stewardship direction, while managing building assets more effectively."

Dave Garcia, Director of Operations
Prince Rupert School District #52, Prince Rupert, BC

"Working with Matthew Redekopp and the Rede team has been an excellent experience. What we most appreciate is Matthews’s ability to really listen to our challenges, then come up with innovative and effective solutions. For example, when we expressed frustration with getting students onboard with our energy conservation program, he developed and delivered a powerful student engagement program. The students really enjoy his approach and style—and we know that when students get engaged and enthusiastic, is when they learn best. We’re happy to have a capable team to work with, that understands the issues, to help with projects we just can’t get to; we look forward to working with Rede far into the future."
