Small Business Energy Advantage

Reduce Your Small Business’ energy costs receive a free energy assessment of your facility —

followed by installation of energy-saving improvements to reduce energy costs and take advantage of additional incentives by SBEA.

How It Works:

After a free energy assessment, you’ll receive a comprehensive proposal that includes all eligible energy efficiency measures, complete with material and installation costs and estimated savings. Then, you’ll decide what improvements make sense for you. After the paperwork is signed, your project can get started – in some cases within 30 days. SBEA program incentives offset a portion of the cost of qualifying measures. CMC will manage all installations and keep you in the loop every step of the way.
