Multi-Family

Multi-family properties often upgrade to water conservation for toilets, shower heads, and faucets.  Additionally, properties will invest in water metering to ensure data accuracy while avoiding unnecessary leakage.  LED lighting upgrades are very common being that the ROI is typically 3.5 years or less.  HVAC upgrades are traditionally tied to loan requirements, but common based on lending requirements and age of building(s).  Solar has been installed, but is less common on the multi-family properties.

K-12

K-12 traditionally see a day one savings with the implementation of solar and LED lighting.  Water is attractive, but less likely to have the same impact as other organizations.  HVAC system upgrades and efficiency techniques happen approximately every ten years.  As the system ages, major components tend to wear out the efficiency of the units, which in turn leads to an increase in monthly utility expenses.

Health Care

A great candidate for all water and energy products.  Solar can be challenging based on roof conditions or available land for solar development.  HVAC units can also be challenging to achieve a sub five-year ROI due to complexities of location and original design.  High efficiency units might require customization which adds to overall investment or in some cases, an expense.

Government

Solutions vary greatly based on the branch of government and size of the facility.  Most common applications are LED lighting, High Efficiency HVAC Systems and Solar.  However, great strides have also been made by the EPA since 2002 to improve water conservation measures, which has led to some government facilities becoming increasingly viable candidates for water conservation.  Financial models have been proven to demonstrate three year or less ROI’s with the proper application.

Private Sector

Solutions vary based upon building size and use.  In general, energy efficiency benefits are best reflected in buildings that are 100,000 square feet or larger.  We also support multiple locations that are geographically diverse.   For the private sector, we typically run financial models that can provide the C-Suite executive insight into ROI ranges and complexity.  This will allow both sides to target the products that will provide the most efficiency.
