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:
- A link to the firm’s website (links are provided above)
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
