Chris Ihler

As CEO and Co-Founder, Chris created EnergyLink in 2010 with an organizational vision of providing cost-effective energy solutions to the mid-cap marketplace. EnergyLink is a general contractor/developer that provides energy redevelopment EPC services in the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions. Chris leads the EnergyLink team with the mission of adding value to the “Triple Bottom Line” of each of EnergyLink’s customers by providing expert energy solutions that benefit clients’ net income, the community, and the environment. 

By integrating customized financial modeling with design-build construction practices, EnergyLink has successfully completed several “first of their kind” energy projects across product categories including energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy storage, and building automation systems. Demand management and economic viability are at the core of every project EnergyLink develops. EnergyLink is a pioneer in the energy financing space, particularly in utilizing Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) financing, in which it is an organizationally-approved contractor, to implement projects that otherwise would not have been feasible.

Prior to creating EnergyLink, Chris founded and led Gateway Investments, a holding company with three real estate arms focused on construction services, rental investments, and raw land development in Mid-Missouri and the Ozarks, including student housing and property management in Columbia.
