Your First Step to Energy Savings
Know where your building stands on energy costs!
Cut costs. You’ve heard this from management over and over. But did you know that energy accounts for almost one-third of a typical building’s operating costs? Because energy savings go straight to the bottom line starting with the next month’s utility bill, energy should be the first place you look to cut costs. Do you know how your building stacks up against other buildings in your market? If you own multiple buildings, where are your best opportunities for savings? Our Energy Benchmark™ service is a quick and easy way to assess the level of energy consumption and how it compares to similar buildings. It’s the first step down the path to increased profitability and asset value through lower operating costs.
Benefits of an Energy Benchmark
Calculate the aggregate value of your energy waste
You can’t improve what you don’t measure. Almost all buildings are using more energy than they need to use. The Energy Benchmark will quantify the value of the problem for your building(s).
Take steps to earn ENERGY STAR certification
A nationally recognized mark of excellence in building performance, the ENERGY STAR™ certification label will increase the value of your building. The Energy Benchmark is how you get started.
We will complete an Energy Benchmark using EPA’s ENERGY STAR™ guidelines. By reviewing your energy consumption we see how efficient your building is today and estimate the energy savings that can be expected. It’s often greater than what you might think. For example, if your energy bills are $10,000 per month, 15% energy savings is $18,000 per year. Not bad for a start. After reviewing your Energy Benchmark with you, we can help you lay out a plan for improvement.
