What is a REAP energy audit?

An energy audit is an in-depth examination of a farm that makes several energy efficiency determinations.

  • If and how energy is being wasted
  • Which systems are operating inefficiently
  • What cost-effective measures can be implemented to improve energy-efficiency
  • Analyze the present energy use of the business and calculate the energy savings that could be expected from energy saving measures

Energy audits can take several forms. An audit can be for the total business and analyze all energy use and give recommendations for energy saving possibilities. Energy audits can also be done for some specific energy efficiency measure or alternative energy possibility. To start we review your utility bills related to your goals then determine what areas of your operation may need to be audited to reach those goals.
