Energy Audits for Existing Buildings: It’s like (nearly) free money!
Energy audits offer a golden opportunity for saving energy - and money - in existing facilities. This presentation will cover the basics of energy auditing, common low- and no-cost energy conservation measures, and higher cost options with fast payback.
