Energy Audits Can Save You Big Money into the Future.
Missouri Enterprise has partnered with the USDA and Missouri Clean Energy District (https://www.mced.mo.gov/) to provide energy audits to eligible Missouri businesses. Eligibility is determined by geographical areas and business types as defined by the USDA under the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP)
The audit is a surprisingly comprehensive review of your facility to help you understand your current energy usage and provide a list of energy saving opportunities, frequently including estimated costs and simple payback potential. Dependent upon the size and scope of your operation, we may be onsite for a couple of hours, for the better part of a day, or for multiple shorter visits as appropriate. Energy focus areas of the audit includes:
- Renewable Energy Systems, including solar power systems, biomass, geothermal, hydropower, hydrogen, wind power systems and others.
- Energy Efficiency Improvements, including lighting, insulation, energy efficient doors or windows, cooler/refrigeration, high efficiency HVAC systems, air compressor systems, boilers, replacement of energy-inefficient equipment and others.
Energy Audit Eligibility & Costs.
The cost for eligible companies to receive a subsidized energy audit is just $112.50, with the balance of costs covered by Missouri Enterprise, Missouri Clean Energy District and the USDA. Qualified applicants include small and medium sized businesses in rural areas (as defined by the USDA) and agricultural producers with at least 50 percent of their gross income from agricultural operations. Other qualifying factors may apply.
