Whole Building Assistance
Re-Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning
This measure incentivizes building owners to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of current building systems for optimal performance. The Hawaii Energy incentive will cover a portion of the commissioning study cost, plus an additional amount based on actual energy savings and peak demand reduction. For more information, call (808) 839-8880.
Understanding how energy is used, and wasted, throughout your business facility is the first step in a whole-building approach to reducing energy consumption and also energy costs. The Energy Audit incentive will provide funding for an industry standard, ASHRAE Level 2 audit or equivalent. There is also a bonus for conservation measures identified and implemented within the first two years after the audit is completed.
An ASHRAE Level 3 audit is typically performed after an ASHRAE Level 2 audit and is intended to provide a more detailed analysis of a focused mechanical system or piece of equipment, such as the chiller system. Hawai‘i Energy provides an incentive to support this industry standard, ASHRAE Level 3 study or equivalent. There is also a bonus for conservation measures identified and implemented within the first two years after the audit is completed.
Hawai‘i Energy requires pre-approval for ASHRAE Level 2 & 3 audits before they are underway.
