On May 19, Powerhouse Dynamics was honored to be named the 2016 Newton Green Business of the Year by the Newton Needham Regional Chamber of Commerce. We are particularly honored because of what we know was stiff competition: this area is home to many, many impressive and sustainability-minded businesses.

Here’s what the Chamber kindly noted about Powerhouse Dynamics:
Located on Bridge Street in the heart of the Charles River Mill District, Powerhouse helps small commercial businesses identify and eliminate wasteful electric, gas and water consumption through a cloud-based product called SiteSage, The system is used in thousands of restaurants, convenience stores, and other small commercial facilities across North and Central America — including Arby’s, Burger King, Not Your Average Joes – and helps businesses reduce food waste and improve food safety by constantly monitoring cooling and cooking temperatures and timing.
Lennon said the chamber judges also praised Powerhouse for extending its commitment to sustainability to its own business practices. “The chamber’s judges were impressed not just by the quality of Powerhouse Systems but the 25-employee company’s own green culture. They encourage, reward, and practice sustainable measures.”
The event speaker, Maryrose Sylvester, CEO of Current by GE, spoke eloquently about why GE has chosen to relocate to Boston, and why Current is being created here. Current pulls together all of GE’s renewables and efficiency businesses, creating a major center of gravity for Boston’s already healthy and growing clean energy sector. We’re thrilled to be part of this burgeoning engine of economic growth.
