We cover all capital equipment
Embarking on creating a detailed capital equipment audit can be a daunting and time consuming task. The Rede team is experienced in working with school districts to deliver audit reports that provide the status on the following capital equipment systems:
Why perform a capital equipment audit?
Energy audits are a powerful tool for uncovering operational and equipment improvements that will save energy, reduce energy costs, and lead to higher performance. Energy audits can be done as a stand-alone effort but may be conducted as part of a larger analysis across a group of facilities, or across your entire school district. These complex energy audits provide a comprehensive energy efficiency capital investment plan that align with your financial goals and forms a critical component of your overall energy management program.
A detailed school energy audit will identify:
- Short-term, low-cost energy efficiency retrofit recommendations
- Action plans for energy efficiency capital investments
- Comfort and code issues that can be addressed immediately
- Opportunities for better adherence to equipment and comfort standards
In summary, a detailed school energy audit will provide prioritized recommendations for capital and operational improvements, timeline, cost estimates, and extrapolated pay-backs/return on investment.
What happens after the detailed school energy audit is completed
Your detailed energy audit will provide you with a prioritized roadmap of what equipment upgrades (electrical/lighting, mechanical/HVAC, and automation) for one, some, or all school facilities. With this in hand, you will be ready to execute upgrades and capture incentive dollars
