Savings totalling the equivalent of the electricity used in 16,400 single family homes in a year has been saved so far. even so, there are still some business owners that she says don't understand the "cost of waiting."

Incentives also are available for retro commissioning, multi-family buildings, commercial kitchen equipment, and hotel and motel guest room energy management systems. To find out more, go to the link.
