ENERGY STAR® Label
Stand Out Among The Crowd – with AAA Energy Service Co. and ENERGY STAR®.
ENERGY STAR is a nationally run program offered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy. It provides carefully developed energy efficiency standards, and encourages energy efficient products and practices. One plan for improved efficiency that is offered by ENERGY STAR centers on improving the efficiency of commercial buildings and facilities. This improvement plan incorporates a rating system to help you achieve your energy and environmental goals. As a reward for meeting or exceeding national standards, the EPA and Department of Energy awards the ENERGY STAR to buildings who have satisfactorily improved their usage.
Establish an energy rating.
Having an ENERGY STAR rated building ensures improvements in energy consumption, financial performance and environment impact. If you are interested in determining exactly how well your buildings perform compared to other like buildings or portfolios, AAA Energy Service Co. can help our benchmarking service allows you to track and assess energy and water consumption, identify buildings that are underperforming within your portfolio, and confirm efficiency improvements.
How do you stack up?
The EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating tool provides an energy performance rating on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being the most energy efficient and 1 being the least. The score represents a percentile ranking compared to the overall national building stock. The ENERGY STAR Label is awarded to buildings that score 75 or above, indicating they are in the top 25 percent of buildings across the nation. With a rating of 75 or above, a building is eligible for the ENERGY STAR Label. However, before the Label is awarded, a Professional Engineer (PE) must perform a site visit and verify the data and complete the application for the label.
Take the guesswork out of the process.
Achieving the ENERGY STAR Label is an easy task. You will benefit from having an expert assist you through the process. Innocent mistakes can easily generate a score that is lower than it should be. Don’t risk the possibility of inaccurately determining your score – AAA Energy Service Co. can help. We offer a turn-key service by benchmarking a facility’s energy consumption, having a PE perform the site visit, and completing the Statement of Energy Performance and Label Application.
