Small Business Energy Initiative

Using too much energy?

What: Our Small Business Energy Initiative - through a U.S. Department of Energy grant, with the support of Duke Energy, and in partnership with the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) - helps you integrate energy efficiency into your business operations.

How: With a free energy audit, we will help you:

  1. Identify your energy hogs
  2. Use less energy
  3. Lower your costs of doing business (average energy savings of up to 20% or more than $1,300 annually on average small business energy costs)

Note: The Chamber office was recently audited – the audit was free, Duke Energy paid 80% of the cost of the retrofit and hired and managed the contractors to change out all of our lights. Totally turn key, totally worth it.

Bottom Line: We do the work and you get the savings.
