Most of our clients work with us through the following process:
Once we learn more about your specific situation, we advise you on the next best steps toward achieving your goals. For some, this is simply advising you to have an energy audit performed, for others, this looks like developing a strategic plan or no-cost behavior change solutions.
2. We review the energy audit
Most energy auditors are specialists and commissioned salespeople. Once you’ve had an energy audit done, you re-engage us to review it. We ensure you’re being guided down a path that is inline with your needs and goals, uncover any gaps, oversights and biases so you have a complete and objective understanding of your opportunities. We then advise you on the next best steps toward achieving your goals.
Some of our clients, unbeknownst to them, had energy audits performed by lighting salespeople. Naturally they were being told to do a lighting project, which isn’t always the best option.
By this stage, you are considering performing an energy saving project and know exactly what opportunities to consider. We grade the proposals providers share with you and provide you with an Energy Project Report Card of the results to ensure you get the best deals for your needs and dollars.
Our grading rubric keeps the grades standardized and objective across all types of projects.
We discuss the results of each proposal, provide you with negotiating levers, advise you on next steps and share our insider expertise giving you a leg up in your decision making.
4. Post decision
With our expert guidance you’ve either chosen to implement a project or gone in a different direction. Either choice is a win-win. We’ve empowered you to achieve the results you need or avoid a costly mistake.
If you’ve chosen to obtain new proposals or consider other energy saving opportunities, we work with you again to grade the proposals you receive.
If you’ve implemented a project, you refer us to others for the incredible insight we’ve provided. Or you add us to your retainer as your energy efficiency back office advisors.
