Happy METU Monday!

Why does energy efficiency make good business sense?

There are many indirect energy saving benefits according to the Small Business Administration (SBA):

Enhanced Employee Productivity - Enhanced comfort and improved lighting conditions may contribute to improvements in staff productivity.
Reduced Operations and Maintenance Costs - Many energy-efficient technologies significantly decrease your operations and maintenance requirements, saving not only money but also staff time.
Increased Customer Comfort - Building upgrades will improve your facility's appearance, present your products or services in a comfortable, well-lit environment.
Increased Asset Value - Efficient business properties have higher market values than those with higher operating costs.
Enhanced Public Image - Your contribution to environmental protection very positively differentiates your business from your competitors.

Happy METU Monday!

What are your barriers to completing energy efficiency projects?
There is no question the barriers exist and they can be very different for each of our municipal partners:

-          How to decide where to begin
-          There is not enough staff support
-          There’s too many details to keep track of
-          There is no budget for these projects
-          How to make sure the project gets completed

If you can relate to any, or all the above, we can help!  METU was designed, specifically, to remove barriers to help you save money on energy.  Let us be a resource to help you reach your energy and money saving goals.

Remove barriers, save money, repeat.  It’s that simple!

Look out for METU near you!
METU continues moving along with projects around the valley.  We are excited to be able to help so many of our local government partners and we can’t wait to expand further.  METU is currently in Avenal, Corcoran, Arvin and Taft.  We also continue to provide benchmarking support to the County of Kern.
