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 a whole building audit that would look at all energy using systems, to a targeted energy audit that is only looking at one or two specific systems.
The Oregon Department of Energy cannot advise you on which firm to select. To help you select the firm that best matches your needs and plans, we suggest the following steps:
  1. Confirm and follow any school district procurement rules and regulations regarding selecting and hiring an energy audit firm
  2. Complete and send the Audit Information Form to ODOE to send out to all qualified energy auditing firms or school district can contact at least three energy audit firms directly to discuss availability and needs
  3. Schedule site visits for energy audit firms so the firm is able to provide a bid estimate and discuss their services
  4. Review all bid estimates and select a bid that meets the school district’s needs

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 at christie.l.sphoon@odoe.state.or.us.

Hiring an Energy Audit Firm

After choosing the energy audit firm that best fits the school district's needs and price range, the school district and energy auditing firm will complete the Scope of Work Approval Form. 

The Scope of Work Approval Form will need to be submitted to ODOE, to review and approve, prior to executing a contract. Once the Scope of Work Approval Form has been approved by ODOE, the school district and energy auditing firm may complete a contract that specifies the approved scope for the energy audit(s) and specifies that all SB 1149 Schools Program energy audit requirements will be met.
