Carbon Lighthouse, a San Francisco-based energy-efficiency
company, raised $27 million to expand its engineering and marketing efforts.
GRC SinoGreen Fund led the oversubscribed funding round and JCI Ventures, SV Tech Ventures and EBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s Ulupono Initiative also participated, according to Carbon Lighthouse Chief Executive Officer Brenden Millstein. Other investors included Ekistic Ventures, Tom Steyer’s Radicle Impact Partners, former General Motors Co. Vice Chairman Steve Girsky and Tesla Inc. Chief Technology Officer Jeffrey B Straubel.
Carbon Lighthouse’s software analyzes data collected from sensors to find ways to make commercial, industrial and education buildings use energy more efficiently. It signs contracts with the owners guaranteeing a certain percentage of annual savings on their power bills, and must cover the difference if it falls short, Millstein said. The company will use the funds to develop its software and hire sales and marketing staff.
