Share the cost of an assessment or schedule an audit:
Energy Audits: For small business customers looking to evaluate their energy efficiency options, or for companies of any size evaluating efficient lighting technologies, CFU offers small business energy and lighting systems audits at no cost. CFU will audit your facility and will provide recommendations about cost-effective options for your business. Contact Pete Olson at 319-268-5355 for more information.
Assessment Cost Share: Some larger business customers need to hire independent energy auditors or engineering firms who possess the technical expertise to assess options for large-scale facilities or specific industrial processes. CFU provides rebates to help pay down the costs of these technical assessments and audits. Assessment rebates from CFU are in addition to any CFU rebates for eligible energy efficiency improvements the business makes after audit completion. Assessment rebate amounts are awarded on a case-by-case basis; for more information contact Pete Olson, Energy Services Manager, at 319-268-5355.
