About ER-LI

The Energized Research / Learning Institute (ER-LI) was founded by local Warrenton, VA resident Michael Rainger* after he had worked for almost 5 years, mostly as a volunteer (1653 free hours), with Fauquier County Public Schools, the School Support Council and Aspirations 2015 Strategic Planning.

Working as an Energy Conservation subject matter expert with Fauquier County and the Vint Hill Economic Development Authority (EDA) in northern Virginia rounded out his skills in the Public Service Sector.

Michael participated with local officials and identified projects, program and initiatives which led to the public schools saving almost $2 million in four year, county government saving $220,617 in three years, Vint Hill EDA saving $20,000 per year since 2010 and Chestnut Forks Tennis and Fitness Club saving $3,500 in 120 days during the winter of 2013!

Local organizations, businesses and individual residents also benefited from Michael's energy reduction expertise and guidance with buildings as old as pre-WWII.

To assist in the collection and review of energy usage data, three websites were created:, and These three sites are FREE for anyone to use to input their monthly energy use data (from utility bills), track their energy usage over time and communicate to others (e.g., fellow workers in an office building, school staff and students, family members, etc.) the results of their cooperative energy reduction / cost savings efforts. These sites also show what others have done to reduce their energy usage.

Energized Research / Learning Institute's mission is to help local communities reduce their energy consumption. This includes:

  • Government
  • Schools
  • Businesses
  • Non-Profits
  • Residents in apartments / primarty homes / vacation homes
  • Individuals, groups, students, etc.

Proven, documented results can be seen here.

Explore our site, browse through our growing repository of energy saving methods, ideas, case studies and follow some of the links to other key sites relating to energy conservation as a door opener to increased local sustainability. Continuous daily education is critical to everyone in these difficult economic times.

ALL communications are considered private and confidential and email addresses are NEVER displayed or passed on to others. This feature has been in all of our e-initiatives since 2004.

* While Michael served as a facilitator / advocate, the energy savings were the result of a true team effort involving over 100 employees, Board of Supervisors, Superintendent, Executives, and the School Board over almost a 5 year period.
