Utility / Energy Audits
Is your facility wasting energy, and do you know if it is? If you haven’t had an energy audit recently, you probably don’t know. Energy finds ways of escaping your facility through your building envelope, inefficient lighting, costly chillers and boilers; increasing your energy and maintenance overhead every year.

At the same time PricingEnergyEfficiency.com provides custom tailored energy solutions, addressing your energy efficiency and building envelope issues. Using PricingEnergyEfficiency.com’s NO out-of-pocket investment plan and utilizing the utilities rebates are solutions PricingEnergyEfficiency.com offers to save you money; but it all starts with an Energy Audit.
Utility Bill Audits
Guess what? Utility companies make billing mistakes. Sometimes your meter gets read incorrectly, or a data entry error is made, or they simply charge you at the wrong rate. When that happens, it could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars.
There is good news! Utility billing errors can be found, and can be reimbursed, often times for up to two years. Our teams 30 years of experience, working with utilities gives PricingEnergyEfficiency.com the advantage to finding errors in utility bills, and leveraging our knowledge for your facilities benefit throughout the utility bill audit.

PricingEnergyEfficiency.com can assist you with our experienced energy benchmarking team, ensuring your facility stays in compliance with benchmarking regulations, while providing energy data, possibly leading to savings with your energy costs.
Benchmarking Your Energy Use
Some Cities and States now mandate large commercial and residential buildings benchmark their energy use on an annual basis. These mandates require utility usage data to be uploaded online, so comparisons are made to similar facilities and against itself over time; hoping to encourage the greater efficiency in energy use.
However, gathering energy data from your facility and entering it online is strenuous and time consuming. PricingEnergyEfficiency.com will work with your local electric, natural gas, and water utilities; gathering annual usage information, on all your facilities, including getting tenant permission when required.

Water / Sewer Management
Water and sewer expenses have increasingly become a significant operating expense for many facilities, and every indication is that it will only get more expensive in the years ahead. This makes water efficiency and conservation solutions critical elements in keeping operating costs under control. But it’s not just about low flow faucets and shutting off the sprinklers. To truly optimize your water and sewer spend, you need to ensure only water is flowing through your meter, that you’re actually using the water you’re paying for, and that your water isn’t accelerating the decline of your cooling towers. PricingEnergyEfficiency.com offers solutions that allow your facility to address these issues without draining your budget.
Smart Water System
Did you know that your water and sewer meters are charging you for air? That’s right, as water flows through the meter, air flows with it, and your meter can’t tell the difference, so you get charged. This could be accounting for as much as a quarter of your water and sewer costs. The solution to curbing these unwanted charges is through the use of smart water valves and PricingEnergyEfficiency.com can help your facility implement these handy devices. Smart water valves work by removing as much air as possible from water before it runs through your meter without reducing water pressure, making it a solution for even residential buildings. Depending on water usage and pressure readings, most smart water value users will see water and sewer costs reduced between 10% and 25%. PricingEnergyEfficiency.com offers smart water valves with no investment so that you can experience savings from day one without impacting your capital budget.
One of the best ways to control water costs is to avoid paying for water you don’t use, especially when that water comes as the result of a leaking irrigation system or a stuck cooling tower valve. And the key to staying on top of your water costs and minimizing these costly breakdowns is through monitoring and PricingEnergyEfficiency.com can help your facility do just this. We provide real-time water monitoring systems that learn about your facilities water consumption patterns. When the system detects an abnormality in your water usage, you get notified immediately via your smartphone about where the leak is occurring and how big it is, so that you can fix the problem in hours rather than days. That’s more money in your pocket and peace of mind in the face of catastrophe.
Cooling Tower Optimization
Cooling towers account for approximately 30% of a facility’s total water usage. Keeping them running efficiently is paramount to keeping your water costs in check; to keep your cooling towers efficient, minimizing scaling and corrosion is a must. PricingEnergyEfficiency.com provides anti-scaling and corrosion systems on a no investment basis that can be added to any cooling tower system. These systems work by pre-emptively removing solids that cause corrosion and scale build-up to keep them from entering your cooling tower. This results in not only reduced water use, but also reductions in energy and chemical use as well.
The addition of an emergency generator has always been a way to ensure available back-up power, especially for critical facilities. But emergency generators can also be utilized as a capacity management asset. Rather than only turning them on when the power goes out, emergency generators can be fired up when the grid experiences stress due to high electricity demand.
Utilizing your generator in this regard will allow you to qualify for demand response programs and receive payments for your generation. Additionally, you will be reducing the amount of energy that you draw from the grid during these high demand periods, which will reduce your PLC number and capacity costs, but will also offset transmission and distribution charges from the utility.
Facility Room Controls
Hotels present unique challenges for energy management. Guest rooms are occupied on irregular schedules and each guest has their own preferences and energy use pattern. You can’t make your guests practice energy efficiency, so as a hotel manager, inefficient energy practices and high costs are something you seem stuck with. PricingEnergyEfficiency.com though can help you take back some control through a hotel room control system.
Hotel room control systems allow your hotel to centralize and even automate several guest room functions. Through the use of occupancy sensors you can keep tabs on when guests leave their rooms and for how long. Knowing this allows you to turn down thermostats, turn off lights and appliances, and close blinds in rooms that are unoccupied, reducing energy waste and saving your hotel money. These processes can usually be automated and your guests won’t even notice a difference.
