Energy Conservation is the First Step

Assessment 

Every energy efficiency project starts with an assessment of the building or site to be improved and ends with the installation of one or more upgrades. We can provide a deeper understanding of how energy flows in and around your daily operations as well as create a roadmap for reduction. It’s amazing what our licensed experts can uncover with just a few hours of diagnostic work. Many restaurants save 3-15% in energy costs thanks to our recommended improvements.

Design Projects 

Our designers and contractors work together as one team to deliver turnkey energy efficiency and electrification solutions. We’ll assess critical processes, recommend improvements and implement site-specific plans. From chiller optimization to improving data center efficiency, we have the resources, research and retro-commissioning expertise to make your energy efficiency project or pilot a reality.

We can provide a deeper understanding of how energy flows in and around your daily operations as well as create a roadmap for reduction. It’s amazing what our licensed experts can uncover with just a few hours of diagnostic work. Many small businesses save 3-15% in energy costs thanks to our recommended improvements.

Our team has a deep understanding of utility, state and federal rebate programs. We work with clients and their utility providers to maximize rebate and financing opportunities for qualified projects.

Situation Assessment 

 The first step is to conduct a feasibility assessment. This will help uncover potential benefits, challenges of tools available, with a unique site in mind. Financial, resiliency and sustainability opportunities will all vary from place to place.

It can be easy to overlook details at the beginning of the process, but missed details often result in increased costs and project delays.

Grant Eligibility

The next step (although it often happens in conjunction with the situation assessment) is to take a look at the myriad of incentives available. This involves laying out the basic types and sizes of technologies involved, their intended locations, the methods for interconnecting them with the local utility. The goal here is to help set the course for future detailed design considerations

Financial Planning 

Before beginning the full design process, it is also crucial to conduct financial planning and develop a cost estimate for the project. These are critical to a system’s feasibility and can illuminate opportunities for third-party financing. It is important to lay out all budgeting guidelines, so as to accommodate such assistance and equipment purchasing.

Project Management

Being vendor agnostic allows our team to bid projects and access competitive market pricing. We then screen contractors, negotiate contracts and oversee your projects from concept to completion. We also offer ongoing reporting and asset management.

Full Design 

Once these steps have been taken and the logistics of the system have been determined, it is time to carry out the full design, moving forward from 30% to complete blueprints and documentation, including a utility interconnection agreement.
