As a company, our ESG efforts provide for maintaining strong environment standards, such as sustainable natural materials, renewable energy, water conservation and CO2 reduction. We support advancing social issues, including plant based living, workforce diversity, human rights, poverty reduction and improvement of animal suffering, through our non-profit initiatives.

Philanthropic Giving

Environmental sustainability is a core component of Nessel’s mission.

Our Team

We believe that it is through the integration of inner development and outer service that the conditions for collective thriving emerge.

Ari Nessel

After an epiphany in 1997 changed the way Ari related to food, his heart opened up to the impact every person’s life has on countless beings and the world at large. Soon after this insight, Ari had a vision of himself attaining his worldly goals & dreams, yet left feeling empty inside. This led him to start a life long process of integrating values such as generosity, sustainability, and kindness into his businesses. Nessel Energy is a manifestation of this intention. 

Over the year Ari’s real estate company, Nessel Development, has included solar energy, rainwater capture, water/energy efficiency practices, low impact materials, recycling and more to minimize its impact on our biosphere. This approach has brought forth great financial success. From which Ari has donated at least half of his income to non-profit organizations working toward creating a more just, sustainable and meaningful human presence on the planet. Thus far this has amounted to over $25M.  Even more important to Ari then having a financial practice of generosity, Ari actively volunteers his time to the various causes he supports (which includes co-founding The Pollination Project and 50by40). 

Ari works to undermine the delusion that life can be compartmentalized into separate boxes such as family, work, service, health and spirit. He remains constantly challenged to live his life in alignment with his values, and to utilize the numerous privileges he has been given, and to turn seeds into blossom and blossom into fruit.

Thomas Loredo
Managing Director

In his role as the Managing Director of Solar, Tom leverages his years of experience to assist clients with project and portfolio level assessments of the financial and sustainable benefits available to their properties. 

Tom’s true passion is to help owners capitalize on their properties by utilizing the sustainable benefits of solar energy to add revenue-producing assets to their real estate. With a broad base of experience in project origination, business development, project development, and construction across the Utility, C&I, and Residential markets, Tom Loredo is proud to be part of the Nessel Energy team.
