Ari Venezia-Zahemski is President and co-owner of Vanguard Energy Services. She is truly passionate about reducing your energy demand, and equally as fired up about getting you the absolute best rates on your supply. After spending over a decade in the Property Management field, she is super excited about being able to give business and property owners a way to finally take control of their Utility costs. If you ask Ari, she’ll tell you “the best part of her job is teaching people how to get rebates and credits back from government and utility agencies; and the most rewarding part is that while saving all this money for our clients, we are participating in saving our planet - one kilowatt at a time."
See the light with a Vanguard Energy Commercial Energy Audit
Businesses with a sincere interest in reducing their energy consumption and lowering their bills need a clear picture of their current energy usage to make informed energy-management decisions.
For these serious business owners, Vanguard Energy offers two Commercial Energy Audits.
The Bird’s Eye View. During this complimentary audit, our energy experts walk through your facilities looking for areas of potential lighting energy savings. We provide a 1-page spreadsheet identifying what your organization can gain from a commercial lighting retrofit, an educated cost estimate, projected cost savings, and feasible ROI.
The Investment-grade Audit. In our more comprehensive audit, we deliver an 8-page report where we specify the cost of waiting*, the potential carbon-emission offset, your projected ROI, and many other details.
Think of a Commercial Energy Audit like a checkup at your doctor
Your audit is a baseline assessment of your current energy health. We identify areas where your operation is unhealthy, or energy inefficient, and show you where the potential for savings are with our energy-management services:
LED lighting retrofit
Electric and natural gas procurement
Combined heat and power
Lighting and energy controls
Small-to-medium size business can often make informed decisions for their operation based on the Birds Eye View audit, and implement commercial lighting retrofits that deliver immediate and on-going savings in both cash outlay and kilowatt hours.
Larger organizations typically choose the Investment-grade Audit as they need to run the results up the chain of command to those who facilitate the decision-making process. Many sustainability committees want to see carbon emissions offset data/estimates and understand the impact of the cost-of-waiting numbers to justify executing energy-management solutions.
*Cost of waiting: estimating your lost opportunity
In the energy industry, “cost of waiting” refers to the potential savings lost as a result of delaying and upgrade to energy-efficient lighting. It is determined by:
Reduced rebates and incentive amounts. As LED lighting adoption becomes more mainstream, the amount of funds in the rebate pool diminishes. The longer you wait, the less rebate dollars are available for your business and energy-reduction initiative(s).
Increased energy costs. Rates continue to go up, and the longer you wait to reduce your demand, the more you’ll continue to pay and the more savings you’ll miss out on.
Replacement costs on inefficient lighting. Fluorescent tubes burn out more quickly than LED lighting, and on top of tubes and ballast costs, you have to pay the man hours for someone to replace them.
Add all of these costs together then subtract savings from rebates you’re not getting — that equals the cost of waiting.
Waiting equals lost cost-savings opportunities
Don’t wait, don’t lose your opportunity to save money and reduce your energy demand. Contact Vanguard Energy to schedule a Commercial Energy Audit for your organization.
