What exactly is a free energy assessment and why would I want one?

100% Clean Bellarine’s free small business energy assessment assesses your business’s energy consumption patterns, equipment efficiency, and overall energy usage to determine how to lower your utility bills. Conducted by our professionally trained assessor and community leader Karen Weaver of 100% Clean Bellarine, the assessments aim to identify areas where energy is being wasted and provide recommendations to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

The assessment starts with data collection! Without data collection, it’s impossible to determine your business’ usage patterns, providing us with a baseline for comparison. Then, we look at your utility bill to find further saving gains.  

Once the assessment is complete, the findings are compiled into a detailed report outlining specific energy-saving measures and recommendations. These recommendations may include upgrading to more energy-efficient appliances, improving insulation, installing programmable thermostats, implementing lighting upgrades such as LED fixtures, adopting smart energy management systems and installing renewable energy systems such as solar and battery storage. The report will also provide a business case detailing the government incentives available to support a switch to electric appliances and renewable energy and the expected payback period. 

The benefits of a small business energy assessment are manifold. Firstly, it can lead to significant cost savings by reducing energy bills over the long term. By identifying and addressing areas of inefficiency, businesses can lower their operating expenses and improve their bottom line.

Moreover, energy assessments contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy production. By minimising energy waste, businesses can decrease their carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, healthier planet.

Additionally, optimising energy usage can enhance the comfort and productivity of employees and customers. Properly maintained HVAC systems, for example, can ensure a comfortable working environment year-round, leading to higher employee satisfaction and retention.

A small business energy assessment is valuable for improving energy efficiency, reducing costs, and promoting sustainability. By taking advantage of 100% Clean Bellarine’s free energy assessment, local businesses can understand their potential to reduce energy-related overheads and carbon emissions.
