Benefits Estimator

With some very fundamental information, this tool allows you to estimate the amount of beneficial work that can be produced in an Energy Savings Performance Contract.

To use this tool you’ll need:

  1. a total annual dollar amount for your organization of all utilities including electricity, natural gas, fuel oil and water/sewer
  2. a rough total of the square footage of the facilities supported by those utility bills
  3. an entry of the percent of savings expected (typically between 22 and 27 percent in facilities that have not completed energy upgrades in the recent past)
  4. an entry of the borrowing rate for funds (an entry of 5 – 7 may provide reasonableness to the estimate)

Enter the collected information into this file and you’ll begin to see the potential impact of your project.
