ENERGY STAR® Program

A Plan for Ambitious Savings

If your business has multiple buildings and a resolve to make dramatic improvements in energy efficiency, ENERGY STAR® Programs will help you achieve your goals. You'll learn which of your buildings will benefit the most from energy upgrades and which measures will save you the most.

We’ll work together to develop a comprehensive, multi-level ENERGY STAR analysis of your facilities, benchmarking your buildings to identify the best opportunities to save. The outcome: a smart plan for major energy savings.

Through our interactions with Consumers Energy staff, the ENERGY STAR program has opened my eyes to energy efficiency opportunities in our District... It has also given me the tools to educate and explain energy savings opportunities to the Superintendent and others within the District.

The ENERGY STAR® Program Process

Benchmark Your Buildings

ENERGY STAR® Program begins with a high-level look at all your buildings. We’ll give each building a benchmark rating, which will tell you:

  • Which buildings are already running efficiently.
  • Which buildings you could improve the most with modest investments and a short payback period.
  • Which energy upgrades you should implement first.

    Identify Immediate Savings and Dig Deeper for More

    Next, we’ll conduct a walk-through assessment of all selected buildings. We'll identify easy, low-cost process changes you can make to start saving energy right away.

    In this phase, we’ll also recommend additional Business Energy Efficiency programs that could result in additional savings. Simultaneously, we’ll work together on a deeper, more rigorous analysis to find more energy savings from the buildings we prioritized in the benchmarking phase.

    A Strategy for More Substantial Savings

    Finally, we create a detailed plan for future energy upgrades, designed to deliver maximum savings to your business with a short payback period.

    You’ll get much more than a to-do list. We'll identify the measures that will have the most impact on each targeted building's efficiency, and develop an implementation schedule. We'll also outline how long it will take you to offset your investment in energy savings.
