Complimentary Limited-Scope Audit

Holy Cross offers complimentary, limited-scope commercial energy assessments to help businesses discover ways to reduce electric usage. These audits are ideal for small business and commercial properties of less than 25,000 square feet.

The assessment last from one to two hours. It starts with the assessor reviewing usage history (with a report provided at the time of the assessment) to better understand the business's electrical use.

The energy assessor then does a walk-through with facility manager or owner to look for ways to reduce electrical use. The assessor also brings a selection of LED lightbulbs that may be sampled during the walk-through.

The assessor will advise on potential rebates for energy efficiency projects and will continue to be work with the business owner to answer questions while the business implements its energy efficiency upgrades.

To schedule your complimentary commercial energy assessment, please contact Mary Weiner at or (970) 947-5473.
