Helping businesses to incorporate energy efficiency in building design and construction practices.
Energy Design Assistance is a free integrated design service targeted at larger facilities. It includes personalized computer energy modeling, which predicts energy use of the building, suggests energy-saving strategies to incorporate into the design and estimates energy-cost savings and construction rebates available for the project
Post-project site verifications help to ensure that the system is working to save on energy bills. We also offer an incentive to the design team for the additional hours spent on greening the project.

Our core program offering, EDA is ideal for projects with energy savings goals in mind and enough time to integrate new ideas and strategies.
For projects that have simpler or extremely rapid or irregular schedules, this process combines the energy analysis part of EDA — condensed into an estimated four weeks. The opportunities for consideration are limited for this option.
This option is ideal for projects with extensive energy savings goals or those seeking to meet green certifications including: ENERGY STAR®, LEED*, and Minnesota B3. Projects within this track begin review of their energy goals in preliminary designs and must be willing to look outside traditional approaches to energy savings.
