Axelrod Energy Services

Who We Are

Arthur Axelrod, President

Arthur Axelrod founded Axelrod Energy Services in 1981 during the energy crisis and oil embargo. The goal of the company was to help building owners lower their energy consumption and give them the ability to pass energy costs on to their tenants through submetering. Mr. Axelrod has vast experience in the submetering field. He helped develop one of the first power line carrier submetering systems to enable meters to be located in areas that could not be read manually. He helped develop metering systems for hot water baseboard heat and hot air furnaces and has developed software packages that allow large commercial building owners to do their own billing. Mr. Axelrod is also the president of Axelrod Builders, a company he has been with since 1962. The company has built over 5000 homes in Pennsylvania and built and developed many commercial buildings in the Philadelphia area. At this time, Axelrod Builders manages the buildings of which Mr. Axelrod is a partner.
