We’re happy to help find the program that’s right for you!
SEM is by your side to assure a successful project from choosing the right program, design, pre-construction, on-site field verification, and final project documentation.
Founded in 2001, SEM has helped developers construct, market, and rent healthier, greener homes for nearly 20 years. With an in-house knowledge base of building scientists, energy analysis, solar system designers, and marketers we have the expertise to elevate your properties to the top of the market.
We learned a long time ago that if we held ourselves to higher standards and took care of our people and the environment, we would rise above the rest. That’s why Southern Energy Management decided to become a certified B Corp in 2009.
B Corp verifies that SEM meets rigorous standards in social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
We’re a passionate team dedicated to improving the way people make and use energy.
We’ve worked on multifamily projects across the country.

Grant was extremely patient, informative, and all around amazing. We will definitely be contacting you for any future projects!
Rachel Della Valle is great, and I appreciate that compared to some other firms I have worked with, your firm is very turn-key. Getting green certifications is always going to create additional headache and additional work. SEM keeps that additional work/headache to a minimum. Lots of good followup, lots of reviewing the plans and filling out checklists, occasional lists of questions - exactly what we need.
The support of Laurie Colwander and team is invaluable.
