Our Story

CESI was formed during the nascent stages of the energy services and microgrid industries by Dave Dayton and Steve Morgan. Pioneering those evolutions gave these founders special perspectives on the exciting potential, and possible hazards, in both industries. They resolved to share those perspectives with public and nonprofit organizations, especially in environmental justice (EJ) communities. This has led to a wide practice in many municipalities, states, and NPOs. Providing guidance, raising funds, and developing new programs and organizations has also required CESI to form close partnerships with firms specializing in new technologies and similarly committed to EJ principles.
