Meet our Team

At Commercial Energy we believe our team members are our greatest assets. They are energy market professionals with decades of experience. They live and breathe the intricacies of the energy management market. 

Who we are


We aim to provide our honest assessment of your energy ecosystem accompanied by vendor-agnostic roadmaps to achieve projects on time and on budget.


Too many time we see businesses quarantining energy budget decisions away from the rest of the operational decisions. We are strategic in our energy approach. Which means taking into consideration all aspects of the business when planning your energy future.


Making impactful business decisions should rarely be driven primarily by intuition. Intuition is the starting line. Data is the fuel you need to drive the best outcomes. We will always support our services with comprehensive data.


No two organizations face the same energy challenges. We approach every client's unique problems open to all solutions and work with them to come to an actionable plan.

We are passionate about bringing energy market expertise and responsible energy use to our clients. We are insightful, curious, and proactive in our relationships and our actions back up those values. We approach the energy market with integrity and compassion - setting us noticeably apart from energy providers focused on selling a commodity at profit and volume.

This journey with CE from start up to the leader in serving the energy needs of our customers in California and Montana has been breathtaking and fulfilling.  We could not have accomplished this without our passionate team members and our loyal customers. Thanks to all!

I am honored to extend the legacy of my parents’ production company, Ranck Oil, to a full service energy company in CE that epitomizes my father’s favorite credo, “It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. You usually get what you pay for.”
