Benchmarking with free online tool helps businesses, organizations reduce energy waste
More and more Michigan businesses and organizations are using benchmarking to target ways to reduce energy waste and cut energy bills.
Benchmarking involves assembling annual utility data to establish a baseline. This provides the ability to:
- Compare building performance with other similar buildings
- Quantify or verify energy and water savings after building improvements are made and
- Identify opportunities for significant energy cost savings.
