Energy Star Certification
The United States Department of Energy (USDOE) provides benchmarks for buildings by geographical region and use so that clients can compare their energy use to determine building efficiency.
One benchmarking system, known as Energy Star, allows clients to rate their buildings to determine if they are performing efficiently, or if energy-related improvements are required.
Reynolds provides clients with a benchmarking service and also trains clients to benchmark their own buildings. A rating of 75 or higher is considered Energy Star certified, and Reynolds provides the service of applying for this certification.
