EverPower and its affiliates are dedicated to being as carbon neutral as possible. Either by using green energy or buying green certificates to offset all of the carbon emissions generated by their operations, our offices achieve a zero emissions status. We “reduce, reuse, and recycle” routinely –and not just paper. By appointing our 15,000 square-foot headquarters offices with appropriate furnishing that have been lightly used by a previous business, we saved a significant amount of money as well as conserved other resources. EverPower’s broader commitment to sustainability can be seen in our employees’ commitment to responsible energy practices. The company’s internal policy encourages all staff members to buy renewable energy when it’s offered by their power utilities or to buy green certificates to offset the carbon footprint of their home energy usage.

Products and Services: automotive (biodiesel conversion systems for medium and heavy-duty trucks)
Achievements of Interest: Optimus Technologies designs and builds low-cost fuel system technology for medium and heavy-duty diesel engines to run 100% biodiesel. In the U.S., there are approximately 8.3 million medium and heavy-duty vehicles that consume 37 billion gallons of diesel fuel annually and account for 25% of vehicle-generated greenhouse gas emissions. Optimus enables fleets to utilize domestically-produced, renewable fuel, reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by 80% or more, and lower fuel costs by at least 10%. Optimus is focused on providing clients a seamless transition to renewable fuels that is compatible with existing infrastructures while minimizing disruptions to their daily operations and reducing their operating costs. Optimus’ systems have been operating on 25 City of Pittsburgh garbage trucks for years, offsetting approximately 66,000 gallons of diesel fuel every year. This equates to a lifecycle GHG reduction per year of 1.2 million pounds of CO2!
