Audits & Retro-Commissioning
Energy Audits & Energy Studies
Understanding how energy is used, and wasted, throughout your business facility is the first step in a whole-building approach to reducing energy consumption and also energy costs. The Energy Audit incentive will provide funding for an industry standard, ASHRAE Level 2 audit or equivalent. There is also a bonus for conservation measures identified and implemented within the first two years after the audit is completed.
An Energy Study is typically performed after an Energy Audit and is intended to provide a more detailed analysis of a focused mechanical system or piece of equipment, such as the chiller system. Hawai‘i Energy provides an incentive to support an industry standard, ASHRAE Level 3 study or equivalent. There is also a bonus for conservation measures identified and implemented within the first two years after the study is completed. Hawai‘i Energy requires pre-approval for an Energy Study incentive before the study is underway.
Re-Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning
This measure incentivizes building owners to evaluate and periodically re-evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of current building systems for optimal performance. The Hawaii Energy incentive will cover a portion of the commissioning study cost, plus an additional amount based on actual energy savings and peak demand reduction.
