Leopardo Energy

Leopardo Energy, through a strategic partnership with Perfection Group, collaborates with municipalities and other local government organizations to renew facilities while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency and decreasing operational costs across multiple departments—all without the need for new capital expenditures.


Leopardo Energy invests your organization’s existing utility and operational waste into improving the environment and addressing infrastructure needs, guaranteeing maximum savings. To accomplish this, we investigate numerous traditional and non-traditional operational cost-reduction measures, including lighting, HVAC, building envelope, building automation upgrades, fleet fuel conversion, fleet leasing, information technology and telecommunications to name just a few.
