ECM: Comprehensive Evaluations (Water / Gas / Electricity)
Depending on geographic location and type of building, ECM has a number of potential measures to meet your energy efficiency goals. Our auditing teams review hundreds of buildings every month and our project teams implement measures in 45-50 states annually. We also have a very strong track record of securing custom rebate incentives from utilities nationwide. Because our auditors are experienced at identifying multiple measures during site evaluation, we can often develop projects with larger scopes at lower costs with very attractive returns on investment.
