Have a technical analysis completed by an engineer or other professional who is a Professional Engineer (PE), a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) or an Accredited Commercial Energy Manager (ACEM) so that you know which energy measures will yield the greatest savings, have a plan in place, and know how much you need to borrow. In some cases, vendors may prepare the technical analysis if you are only contemplating one type of energy measure.
