Sachin Sawhney is passionate in helping improve efficiency through innovative cleantech products and services for new energy systems. He is a co-founder of SILC and its director. He also founded New Energy Connect which focuses on helping midsize businesses and building owners procure cleantech innovation. He works with leading energy partners and proven startups to identify, integrate, and package products or software solutions into a monthly “as a service” model instead of traditional “ownership” model. The partners are able to absorb the costs of design, installation, and continued service and still reduce monthly energy usage.
