Energy Efficiency projects

There are many ways to reduce your facility’s energy usage through efficiency projects. Usource energy consultants will work with you to identify cost-saving energy efficiency measures that make sense based on your goals and objectives. Potential areas we investigate for upgrades, monitoring, and automated controls include:

Cooling and refrigeration systems
Motors, pumps, and compressors
HVAC systems
Boiler systems
Renewable energy options

Not only is Usource extremely familiar with utility-sponsored energy efficiency rebates, but our consultants can also assist with utility energy efficiency RFP’s and federal subsidies as well. If your organization is thinking about embarking on an energy efficiency project, or in the midst of one right now, know that you don’t have to go through the process alone — a Usource energy consultant can help.

As a DR program participant, you can get paid to reduce or shift your facility’s electricity usage when your regional power grid is reaching peak. 

Your company can reduce next year’s capacity tag costs by strategically adjusting your energy usage during peak energy grid events.

With intermittent resources like wind and solar generation, energy storage allows facility managers to more easily bring on and off renewable energy.
