Energy Alabama to Help Local Churches Slash Energy Costs with Energy Benchmarking

HUNTSVILLE, AL—Energy Alabama is helping local churches and houses of worship get the most out of their utility bills and reduce church energy costs with energy benchmarking. More budget for work in the community is just a perk.

On Tuesday, February 7, Energy Alabama will host an Energy Benchmarking at Avion Solutions, Inc. on Research Drive in Huntsville. At this free event, local church representatives will have energy experts on-hand to help guide them through the process of using energy benchmarking to save money on utility bills.

Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy a building consumes, and comparing it to the same data from similar structures. This benchmarking “jam session” will bring energy experts together with church leaders to maximize energy and water efficiency throughout the community. In addition, businesses will be able to identify potential projects eligible for ENERGY STAR certification.

Tickets are free, although space is limited. The jam begins at 5:30 p.m. and finishes at 8:30. Refreshments will be provided. Each building representative should bring the following:

  • Laptop or tablet
  • The building street address, year built, and contact information.
  • Twelve consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building.  Historical energy use data can be downloaded on the Huntsville Utilities website with an online account.

Space can be reserved at: https://alcse.org/events/church-energy-benchmarking/
