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.
