While Energy Benchmarking helps track your building’s energy use and compares it to the energy used by other buildings in your portfolio, an energy audit consists of an inspection survey with an energy analysis for your building. The main purpose of an energy audit is to determine whether your building wastes energy, and to pinpoint where energy is being lost so you can evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient. Green audits look at energy, air quality, food, water, transport, waste, operations, maintenance, landscaping, and anything we can think of within your faith community that can be greened.
Below is a list of contacts that conduct audits for faith community buildings.
