Energy Savers Offers:
- Energy Analysis. An expert energy analyst will conduct an on-site inspection of each participating facility. This will involve gathering information on how the building is used, the building structure, systems, and equipment. This typically involves evaluation of heating, cooling and ventilation systems, lighting, water heating equipment, plug load, and structural elements such as the roof, walls, windows, doors, and foundation.
- Analysis Report. The energy analyst will provide a customized report recommending the most cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for your facility along with any relevant health and safety recommendations. The report lists recommended upgrades ranked by estimated savings and payback.
- Financing Options. The Energy Savers team will help organizations identify financing options and any available rebates or incentives that can help cover the cost of the recommended upgrades.
- Construction Management and Oversight. Expert building analysts will assist throughout the construction process. The program team can help develop a plan to implement energy improvements, work with building managers to review bids from contractors, and assist in scheduling and monitoring installation work.
