Energy Benchmark Your Business

The Fresno County Economic Development Corporation (EDC), in partnership with the City of Kerman, the Central Valley Energy Tune-Up, and Pacific Gas and Electric Company, is pleased to announce that a free energy efficiency benchmarking workshop will be held in Kerman for local businesses on August 3, 2016, at 2:00PM.

Learn how your specific facility’s energy use compares to your industry averages. Ask energy professionals about your company’s energy concerns. Find out what incentives you qualify for to pay for upgrades to lighting, refrigeration, HVAC, pumps, and more. Access zero interest financing to pay for any costs not covered by the variety of incentives in effect right now. Some incentives may not be available after 2016, so now is the time to maximize your opportunity for assistance.

Attendees must RSVP and provide a signed release allowing the program one-time access to energy use data for the business location or 13 months of paper utility bills well in advance of the event to complete the benchmark report. Call Margo Lerwill at the Fresno County EDC at 559-476-2503 to RSVP for the event or to reserve a spot on the waiting list for future events. Please keep in mind that each workshop can accommodate only 10-12 businesses.

We look forward to helping your business save energy and money and become as competitive and efficient as possible.
