Project consulting performed by Palmer Conservation Consulting (PCC) is a process of continuous improvement by tracking, analyzing, diagnosing, and resolving issues with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and lighting systems. PCC’s goal is to achieve optimal comfort with the least amount of energy consumption in your buildings.

Buildings aren’t just a pile of bricks and mortar. They are investments with significant profit potential. They need to be comfortable for occupants and must operate efficiently to remain competitive. Building owners who achieve this balance benefit from deep cost savings and market leadership.

With the help of PCC, building owners can improve their sustainability credentials through certification programs, including the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® rating and the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) program.

When do you find out how much you’re spending on energy usage? After the fact – when your monthly bill arrives? By then, it’s too late to react to any abnormal usage and avoid wasted costs. And if your organization implements energy efficiency projects, how can you be certain these changes are delivering results? Waiting for monthly utility bills and comparing them to previous month’s bills is no longer an efficient way to track your energy reduction efforts.

Energy Optics™ by Palmer has the ability to reliably report energy consumption and spending in real-time. Having this data at your fingertips allows you to expeditiously evaluate the savings and improvements created by your energy management projects.

PCC will give you the tools necessary to easily access and monitor your buildings’ energy activity and any abnormalities that may occur.

Traditional energy management is essentially centered on the boiler or mechanical room. Energy Master Planning, on the other hand, is a business management procedure for commercial, institutional and industrial operations. An EMP may be thought of as a roadmap to savings that starts before and continues after energy-efficiency measures are involved. Why do you need such a map? Because you can’t get there if you don’t know where “there” is. Let PCC create an EMP roadmap specifically for you so that you can start saving now and well into the future!

Energy is not a fixed-cost; it’s something that can be managed. That is why an Energy Master Plan (EMP) is critical for your organization. An EMP can guide a business in longer-range planning of energy cost-reduction while controlling facility maintenance, management, and design.

PCC includes many steps not usually taken under conventional, technically oriented energy management.
