Concept-Through-Completion Energy Efficiency Projects:

  • Electric bills are provided for review and the company’s priorities for LED lighting are determined.
  • No-cost facility audits are conducted to gather data of the existing lighting and determine the lighting preferences of company.
  • LEDs are specified, which would qualify for maximum rebates and meet building requirements of economics and lighting quality.
  • Sample LEDs are provided to test for compatibility with facility equipment and assure overall suitability for the application.
  • An Opportunity Report is prepared of existing and proposed lighting, energy savings, project cost, rebates, and net cost, if any.
  • Company authorizes an project to proceed.
  • In some cases, utility will conduct a pre-installation inspection to confirm the counts and descriptions of the existing lighting.
  • When pre-installation inspections are not required or utility approval to proceed after conducting an inspection, LEDs are supplied.
  • Installation is completed by building staff, contractors selected by the building management or arranged by AEE.
  • AEE develops and submits completed data of counts and descriptions of installation data to the utility.
  • In most cases, utility companies conduct a post-installation inspection to verify the counts and descriptions of the installed LEDs.
  • Utility approves the completed scope of work and approves rebate.
  • AEE handles all utility requirements to schedule inspections and qualify for rebates.
