Engineering Assistance Studies

Identify strategies to reduce your energy operational costs.


A study provider of your choice will help you develop an engineering study which will outline energy improvement opportunities and provide recommendations for your facility when you’re ready to replace or upgrade processes or systems.

Your personalized engineering study includes:

  • Initial “rough” estimate of potential energy savings.
  • List of known and unknown potential energy savings opportunities.
  • Estimated energy savings for each unique opportunity identified.
  • Estimated implementation costs, as well as simple payback or ROI.
  • Analysis of non-energy (O&M) operating cost savings impacts.
  • Analysis of increased operational costs or potential penalties.

We will review, prequalify and preapprove funding for all viable proposals and will pay up to 75% of the total study cost (up to $25,000). Any funding is based on the potential energy savings of the project and the cost of the study.

To participate:

  1. Hire a study provider of your choice to analyze the facility and develop recommendations for the most energy efficient opportunities.

  2. Secure written pre-approval by completing the application herein along with the engineering proposal that includes the scope of work, and submit this packet to us. The application can be completed online, or by using the following documents.

Energy Saving Tip

Create your own shade by planting a tree in a strategic location in your yard to block sunlight from pouring into your windows. It doesn't get much more green than a tree!


Gas Meter Safety

Keep your natural gas meter dry and clear of snow and ice at all times to avoid the potential for dangerous indoor natural gas buildup.
