If an energy auditing firm does NOT appear on this list, it is because:
  1. The firm has not submitted a proposal
  2. The firm's proposal is being processed
  3. The firm's proposal has been denied
 
Choosing an Energy Audit Firm
Choosing the right energy audit firm can be difficult. Not only must the school district consider the firm's qualifications, but your school district must match its identified needs and future plans to the abilities of the energy auditing firm.
 
The school district's needs can range from simply acquiring equipment specifications during the audit process to requiring detailed engineering design for several energy efficiency and non-energy efficiency upgrades.
 
To help you choose the firm that best matches your needs and plans, please check out the following:
  1. A link to the firm’s website (links are provided above)
  2. A schedule of fees and the counties they provide services within. To view a schedule of fees for qualifying firms please contact Christie Sphoon at 503-373-7430 or christie.l.sphoon@odoe.state.or.us.
 
Because the Oregon Department of Energy can not advise you on which firm to select, we suggest you perform one or more of the following:
  1. Complete and sent the Audit Information Form to ODOE to be sent out to all qualified auditing firms.
  2. Visit the auditing firm's websites and review their schedule of fees.
  3. Ask the auditing firm to visit and explain their services
  4. Follow your school district's rules regarding the hiring of
    consultants.
 
All proposals are on file at the Oregon Department of Energy. If you wish to read them, an authorized school district agent can contact Christie Sphoon at 503-373-7430 or christie.l.sphoon@odoe.state.or.us.
 
More information on choosing and hiring an energy audit firm can be found in How to Hire an Energy Auditor to Identify Energy Efficiency Projects, published by the California Energy Commission.
 
Hiring an Energy Audit Firm
After choosing the energy audit firm that best fits the school district's needs and price range, please make sure that any contract signed between the school district and the auditing firm specifies that all requirements and forms of RFQ #12-087 will be met. A Scope of Work Approval Form will need to be submitted by the auditing firm to ODOE to receive approval to move forward with audits.
