BlocPower is a Brooklyn-based climate technology startup that is making American cities greener, smarter, and healthier. BlocPower aims to scale green energy across American inner cities by updating older buildings (making them safer, energy efficient and reducing greenouse gas emmissions) while hiring from vulnerable populations.
Since its founding in 2012, the company has retrofitted more than 1,000 buildings in disadvantaged communities in New York City, with projects underway in 24 cities.
BlocPower uses proprietary software for analysis, leasing, project management, and monitoring of clean energy projects that save customers between 20-70 percent on annual energy costs - all while supporting high-paying jobs for workers in the communities the company hopes to serve.
The company is backed by some of the world’s top investors including The Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, Kapor Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, the American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact, AccelR8, Salesforce Ventures, and New York Ventures of the Empires State Development Corporation.
