CommEnergy is an EnergyStar® Partner with hundreds of commercial and multifamily clients throughout California. Our experienced team provides benchmarking and ASHRAE auditing of your property’s energy utilization, alongside recommendations to help improve efficiency and reduce costs. Call us for multifamily AND commercial EnergyStar Benchmarking for all of California.

Energystar® benchmarking is required by law throughout California. The power of benchmarking is beyond the law, as it provides the building owner with a comparative energy usage analysis of each building or multifamily complex that shows:

  • Energy use trends and swings that require attention
  • Peer Ranking of similar building types throughout the USA
  • The identification of properties that need energy upgrades – some of which with rebates
  • Energystar® scores that your tenants review upon leasing

Allow CommEnergy to complete the difficult setup of your property profile in EnergyStar Portfolio Manager and obtain the utility data. We submit the reports and handle government reporting issues. Then CommEnergy shares the profile with you and trains one user on managing the EnergyStar Portfolio Manager.
