Low Cost Direct Installation of Energy Efficiency Measures

AMBAG Energy Watch offers a turnkey energy efficiency program. This program includes an energy audit of your facilities at no cost to your organization. The audit is reviewed with your team and you are able to select from the recommendations which energy efficiency measures you would like to implement. If you choose to proceed with installation, our program provides a streamlined process of quality-guaranteed product installation. The funding provided through the AMBAG Energy Watch program makes it possible to deeply discount the costs related to the installation of energy efficiency measures. Measures included in the program are energy efficient lighting including dimmable options, LED exit signs, occupancy sensors for lighting, vending machine controllers, and PTAC heating/air conditioning control systems.

Financing Energy Efficiency Projects

Computer Power Management Program
AMBAG Energy Watch will assist you to install Computer Power Management (CPM) software at no cost to you for the software. CPM software offers continuous energy savings through better management of the power settings on both desktop PC and MAC desktops. This software allows organizations to set standards that ensure idle computers are either using low power or completely shut down. CPM software provides centralized control over the power management features of each PC or MAC desktop within a computer network.
