November 15 is the deadline to apply for 2017 ENERGY STAR Certification!

Time is running out to apply for 2017 ENERGY STAR certification! The deadline to apply is November 15. Here are some helpful links:

  1. Download instructions for how to apply for ENERGY STAR certification
  2. Read 10 reasons to certify your building as ENERGY STAR

ENERGY STAR certification is free, but your application will need to be verified by a professional engineer or registered architect. You can use an in-house PE or RA, or hire someone (he or she may charge a fee for this service, typically $1,000 - $1,500).

  1. Find PEs or RAs nearby who can verify your application
  2. Have a PE or RA on staff? Give them these instructions to follow.

And remember, studies have shown that ENERGY STAR certified buildings:

  • Have lower operating costs
  • Are more marketable
  • Command higher rental rates
  • Have increased asset value
  • Contribute fewer greenhouse gas emissions to the environment

And check out this graph showing the added market value of ENERGY STAR certified buildings.

There is simply no better way to demonstrate to your customers, investors, employees, and other stakeholders that you are saving energy, saving money, and protecting the environment.
