EPA’s 2013 National Building Competition is accepting entries for 2013! This competition pits buildings against buildings to see who can trim their energy waste the most. In 2012, our very own UtilityTrac Plus™ client, Town of Cary, NC, was among the winners! The deadline to register is May 31st. With UtilityTrac Plus we have the tools you need to track your projects and beat the competition!

If you are not familiar with UtilityTrac Plus or you haven’t seen it in awhile, you should check out the new Cost Avoidance feature. This new feature can show you the costs and usage you’ve successfully avoided through your conservation efforts. It works by having a baseline year and a savings period to compare. This savings period can be from the time you completed a retrofit, started energy savings initiatives, or had a change in your square footage—it’s up to you to choose what you want your savings period to be. The Cost Avoidance feature takes into account the weather, unit cost changes and square footage to show you what your costs and usage would be if all things were equal to your baseline year.  It is a great way to justify projects and initiatives when external factors such as weather or vendor rate changes cause your overall costs to rise.
