About Us

Seinergy is reducing energy consumption and building a Virtual Power Plant.  Twenty million annual kWh have been saved – the equivalent of adding solar to 7,575 homes.  Without us, some of these projects would have happened (sure!). But we made them easier, faster, and ensured that nothing fell between the cracks.

Our goal is to match the energy output from the Waukegan IL coal power plant, close to where our founder, Bob Gunn, grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. We’re 2% of the way there!

We do this by helping an emerging, energy intensive industry (indoor cannabis production) reduce its energy footprint by supporting growers and leveraging utility dollars.

Our Team & Culture  We have a passion for entrepreneurship and creativity, valuing the role of small business, sustainable practices and healthy work-life balance.  Our company exists at the intersection of utility rebate policy, finance and cannabis.

Our team’s complimentary background helps us work together to execute our business. Our skills include:

  • Certified Energy Manager (CEM)
  • Sustainable Business Students and Practitioners
  • Masters in Business Administration
  • Botanists, Economists, Environmental Scientists, Educators
  • Financial Engineers, Analysts, Managers and Bookkeepers
  • Entrepreneurship, Business Creativity
