Benchmark your Electric, Gas and Water to identify saving opportunities
Benchmarking is the process of accounting for and comparing a building's past and current energy and water performance. Benchmarking is rapidly becoming mandatory nationwide for government and commercial buildings. It is also now a part of a public disclosure report leading to improved transparency in the commercial real estate market when it comes to investing, purchasing or renting.
Do you want to know how you stack up against similar buildings across the country that look and operate like yours?
There's a solution: EPA's 1-100 ENERGY STAR score. It's available for government and private commercial type building. When you get an ENERGY STAR score for your building it indicates how it's performing against peer facilities nationwide. For example, a score of 50 is typical, while a 30 means it's only more efficient than 30 percent of peer buildings. A score of 75 or higher means your building is a top performer - and eligible for ENERGY STAR certification!
