The Onyx Cares Project

Since the inception of Onyx Energy; care and concern for the environment has been a pillar of our corporate culture.  To name a few initiatives, we have planted trees, donated seedlings to area schools and have held e-waste drives!  We decided to bring together our passion for the environment and sustainability and create the Onyx Cares Project.

For each new contract; Onyx Energy provides the following options to our clients;

  • Tree Planting/Seedings.  We will donate seedlings (one for each Tenant/Occupant) that can be planted on-site; if planting on-site is not an option, Onyx Energy will add the total number of trees to our tree planting events and donate these in the communities which we service
  • Filtered Water.  Onyx Energy has partnered with a local company, Enviro-Stewards; with their help, we will donate on our client’s behalf one filtration system; which is sent to a community in need, generally Africa, these systems can filter water for a community of 10 people for up to 25 years.  Each system is tracked via GPS and information relating to the community is shared through social media
  • Living Wall.  One of the benefits of installing a living wall is that it is a natural way to purify the air around you; they also provide a great visual and are an indoor statement piece.  Onyx Energy can provide and install living walls to be enjoyed by your clients, Tenants or Occupants.

Installing our sub-metering services can make a significant impact on the environment. Generally, when users are made aware of their consumption, they lower their consumption, which conserves natural resources.  When you choose to partner with Onyx Energy for sub-metering, you are selecting a Partnership with Purpose.





How Sub-Metering Increases Property Value

The costs associated with the delivery, supply and administration of utilities continues to rapidly increase year over year. As a property owner you can lessen your overall burden of having to absorb these rate increases by using Onyx Energy’s sub metering solution.

Onyx Energy’s sub metering system creates easy visibility into how and when energy is consumed. This means that key decision-makers can identify inefficiencies and take immediate action to curb waste. At the same time, making buildings themselves more sustainable, and helping equipment and machinery last longer.

While having accurate energy bills is great, tenants also want to see their own real-time data for their space.  This unique offer gives the building a competitive advantage which can help maintain high occupancy.

By reviewing their energy data, tenants can see how their behavioural changes affect utility bills. Each sustainability effort tenants make will be visible in the energy consumption data, motivating them to reduce their energy consumption through simple adjustments likes electricity usage during off hours.

A reduction of net expense through water and energy conservation and recovery of utility expense adds to an owner’s net operating income. When a property’s net operating income is increased, the result is a greater loan and resale value to the owner. Not to mention, properties outfitted with utility sub-metering, allocation, and billing management systems have the curb appeal and financial draw buyers look for.

Partnering with Onyx Energy will dramatically increase your property value. For example, a 50 unit building pays $25,000 in water and gas fees annually. Having the tenants pay for their own consumption increases the value of the property by $500,000 with zero money invested.
