When building owners contemplate a major
improvement program, it is the time to consider all of
the energy performance opportunities available. EIS
works with each client building to consider the highest
performing and most appropriate energy equipment
available, to review the configuration of the building's
supply and generation of energy, and to integrate
energy systems with user information technology.
EIS works closely with its clients to develop custom
improvement packages that maximize operating cost
reductions and program incentives to offset capital
costs. We produce long-term improvement packages
with lifetime savings that can be several times the cost
of the improvements. We assist clients to structure
low-cost financing that keeps the project in the black
from day one.
