LIGHTING ENERGY AUDITS FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES

WHAT IS A LIGHTING ENERGY AUDIT?

A lighting energy audit is a study of your building's lighting energy usage. An energy auditor comes to your building and records all current lighting energy uses, interviews managers to determine areas needing lighting improvement and develops a formalized plan to reduce lighting energy and maintenance costs. The auditor will quantify how much savings potential there is for each area of suggested change, the costs associated with implementing the changes and the return on investment (ROI) that can be expected when the changes are implemented.

WHO BENEFITS?

If your building has not had a recent lighting upgrade or is not currently using LED technology you might benefit from a lighting energy audit.

HOW MUCH MONEY CAN BE SAVED?

When talking about possible energy savings in a facility, it is impossible to make an accurate estimation without knowing all of the factors at play. Characteristics such as facility size, current lighting being used, current utility usage and many other factors can directly affect your energy savings. We have seen savings of up to 40-65% in some facilities. If the facility has been in operation for many years with no energy audits or improvements made, then the savings could be substantial.


HOW LONG WILL THE ENERGY AUDIT TAKE?

The amount of time will be determined based on the size of facility and number of lights used. Many times an audit can be completed in less than a day, although larger facilities can take longer. After the completion of an audit, a formalized report will be presented for review in less than two weeks.

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) sets the standard for energy audits: ASHRAE Level 1, 2 and 3. We perform Level 1 and 2 audits to show businesses how they can reduce energy costs up to 40-65% by upgrading to energy efficient lighting. When a Level 3 audit is required/requested, we can work with your engineering firm to help create the solution.

YOUR DETAILED REPORT WILL SHOW:

  • How much of your utility bill is going towards the lighting based on watts per fixture, the hours the lights are on and the cost per KWH.
  • How much you will save by upgrading to energy efficient lighting and the return on investment (ROI).
  • How much of a rebate the utility company will pay you to upgrade.

After acceptance of the lighting energy audit findings, fixtures and materials will be specified to meet your individual needs and budget. Rebates for your lighting upgrade will be assembled and filed. In some cases we can arrange for the rebate to be offset against your initial purchase. We will act as your agent to ensure you get the best possible rebate available.
