SECO’s new Remote Energy Audit Program will help improve the energy efficiency of public buildings in Texas. The program is designed to identify operational and capital related energy efficiency savings opportunities without onsite visits. Remote energy auditing uses software-based data analytics where sufficient daily, monthly or interval electric usage data is available. Remote audits are provided at no cost to selected public entities to help reduce energy bills, freeing up operating dollars for other needs and improving the usability and comfort of facilities. SECO has contracted with CLEAResult to provide these remote energy audits.
This is a voluntary collaborative between a public entity and SECO. SECO will provide these services at no cost with the understanding that the Applicant will exert its best efforts in collecting the necessary information for the remote audit, and act on any cost effective savings opportunities.
Eligible applicants for the program are Texas public K-12 schools, local governments, state agencies and public institutions of higher education, to reduce energy costs and maximize efficiency. SECO encourages applications from K-12 schools in rural areas.
