Benchmarking your building’s energy use is an important first step on the road to energy efficiency. Energy Smart program staff assists with the process, starting with a utility bill analysis. Using U.S. Energy Information Administration standards, we’ll compare the energy use intensity of your building against other buildings of its type. We’ll let you know how you’re doing and will recommend next steps.
If your building energy use index is below the national average, we can help you look into getting a US EPA ENERGY STAR rating for your building. Read more about our ENERGY STAR building rating assistance below.
Energy Star Rating Assistance
We believe that energy efficient businesses should be recognized. Achieving the United States Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR building rating is a great way to be recognized and we can help with the process.
We’ll enter your utility billing and building information into the ENERGY STAR building rating database and will let you know your rating. A score of 75 or higher means that your building may qualify for an ENERGY STAR rating. If you choose to pursue the ENERGY STAR rating, data for your building needs to be verified by a registered architect or physical engineer. We can assist with this part of the process as well.
