ENERGY ENGINEERING

With an estimated 5 million commercial buildings in the United States spending a combined $ 200 Billion on energy costs, investing in more efficient designs could save up to 30% ($ 65 Billion) per year. If you have an existing building, let CTA help you get an estimate of possible energy savings with our energy audits, or maximize your return on investment by using our turnkey solutions.

 

An investment in an energy project can be one of the smartest things a real estate owner can do today to create value. With ROI’s approaching 20 to 35% a year for many projects and funding costs recently as low as 2.5%*, an energy project can have an immediate impact on the building NOI – which adds value to your building. 
*Using a state funded loan program for energy projects.
