Lastly, the tools needed for an audit include a facility floorplan, 12 months of electric bills, and existing fixture details.
Our skilled team will provide a proposal of your facility with benchmarks. This proposal will suggest areas for lighting improvement to ensure the right amount of light is being given in each critical space. The auditor will calculate the energy savings (or payback) to support the results of your audit. Most importantly, the report will be designed to fit your budget, space, and corporate lighting needs.
