Ideal Impact Generates $22,220 in Energy Savings for Southern Baptists of Texas Convention

Ideal Impact, Inc. (www.idealimpactinc.com), a new company that generates revenue through energy savings for churches, schools, universities and commercial buildings throughout Texas, signed an energy savings contract with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention (SBTC) office facility in Grapevine, Texas.

“For several years we have been looking for ways to maximize efficiencies in our energy usage. Ideal Impact brought a solution that I believe will provide substantial long-term savings to our ministry,” says Joe Davis, chief financial officer of the SBTC, which has 2,143 affiliated churches throughout the state. “These savings will increase as time goes by and energy costs continue to climb. Putting more dollars into ministry and less into overhead makes perfect sense.”

The three-year Active Revenue Creation Contract estimates the facility, which encompasses approximately 30,000 square feet, will save $22,200 annually through the implementation of a customized energy plan, as well as ongoing energy education training for the staff. Projected savings over a 15-year period is approximately $518,000. Most significantly, the contract required no upfront costs and is a positive cash flow project.

“Our mission is to make a positive impact and what better way to do so than create funds for ministry purposes,” states Ideal Impact CEO Wes McDaniel. McDaniel says the company recently signed a contract with Church at the Cross in Grapevine, generating $32,800 per year in energy savings.

Ideal Impact works with churches, schools, universities and commercial buildings in Texas with a minimum annual energy bill of $50,000. Led by a team of experienced professionals in the energy savings industry, Ideal Impact offers energy solutions for both buildings and personnel:

*Active Revenue Creation: Utilizing a five-step process, a customized plan is developed that reduces energy consumption while maintaining comfort. A positive cash flow from the start, there are no up front costs or lease-purchase/ loan to repay.

*Managing Energy Efficiency Services: Rising energy costs, combined with aging facilities and outdated equipment for many organizations, the opportunities to save energy and money are abundant. Comprehensive or individual energy conservation measures – including control systems and lighting retrofits – can be implemented quickly.

*Reducing Energy Costs: By implementing energy reduction solutions and energy education programs, we teach building personnel and occupants to become energy smart and environmentally aware.

Founded March 2, 2009, Ideal Impact’s mission is well-defined: to help commercial businesses, public entities and worship facilities reduce energy consumption and create a new revenue source; to help clients use resources wisely and efficiently; and to have a positive impact on the environment.

The company’s corporate office is located at 1133 South Main Street in downtown Grapevine. For more information call (817) 251-8498 or visit www.idealimpactinc.com.
