To identify specific opportunities for savings, weigh costs against benefits, and prioritize investments, an energy audit is necessary.
The owner of each non-residential building larger than 10,000 square feet must obtain a comprehensive energy efficiency audit of the entire building from a qualified energy auditor at least once every five years. The auditor is responsible for submitting a detailed report to the building’s decision makers, and the point is to provide a reliable catalog of opportunities to cost-effectively improve energy efficiency. The priority should be to obtain specific recommendations that empower action to save both energy and money.
