CES offers a wide variety of programs to help Orlando businesses save energy and money.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) can account for as much as 30% of a building's annual energy usage. CES offers a wealth of opportunities for businesses to cost-effectively improve the energy efficiency of their HVAC systems and save money on energy bills.
How do you start? Start with a FREE Energy Assessment. Contact a CES representative, who will visit your business to offer a free assessment with recommendations for energy-saving measures that will best benefit you.
When you sign up for a Free Energy Assessment, a CES energy expert will evaluate energy-consuming equipment at your facility and recommend low-cost/no-cost measures, as well as some measures with longer paybacks, that will help you use energy more efficiently. The on-site analysis takes about two hours. Larger facilities may require additional time.
Our analyst will follow up with a detailed report of energy saving opportunities along with billings history, energy usage graphs, energy usage and cost forecasting, as well as benchmarking and greenhouse gas emissions information.
Three easy steps:
- A CES authorized energy professional will perform a NO COST, comprehensive energy assessment of your business, looking at your lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and other systems to identify where you can save the most energy and money.
- You will receive a customized report with your recommended efficiency improvements and the estimated energy savings. This report will also show you the estimated project cost, the amount that will be covered by the rebate, and how quickly your investment will pay for itself!
- When you are ready to move forward, CES can help you install the energy-saving upgrades. With rebates that cover up to 50% of the project costs for businesses, most projects pay for themselves in one to two years.
