Do your leases-in-place assure you the EE savings you have contracted for? <br />Evaluate financing options: What is the most cost-effective method for financing retrofits across my portfolio? Have I secured all available incentives? <br />Ensure performance: How do I establish appropriate financial and energy targets?
