Our Easy 5 Step Turnkey Process
Thermo Source’s audit team will visit your site to collect all the information needed to develop an energy savings proposal. We perform the following at our site visit:
- Count every light fixture and determine existing wattage
- Understand hours of operation
- Discuss customer light level desires
- Request the last months electric bill to determine cost of energy
- Discuss customer’s budget, payback requirements and interest in financing
Following our site visit, Thermo Source inputs the gathered data into our custom software programs and develops a detailed proposal that outlines specifically what we will replace, the options to replace it with, the specifications of each option, the total cost of each option, the annual utility/maintenance/escalation savings of each option, the utility/state/federal incentives available for each option and the Return on Investment.
Many customers prefer to finance energy conservation projects because these programs can be structured in a fashion where the monthly energy and maintenance savings are greater than the monthly financing payment, which means positive cash flow is generated each month and no up-front investment is required. For those customers interested in financing, Thermo Source will develop a simple cash flow which details the benefits (annual utility savings, maintenance savings, local/state/federal incentives), costs (finance payments) and cash flow generated over a 5 to 25 year period (depending on project). Upon acceptance of that cash flow, Thermo Source will work together with you to secure loans for the projects. For our Michigan-based clients, Thermo Source offers a 0% Interest financing through Michigan Saves.
In addition, Thermo Source will submit all rebate applications on behalf of the client. Thermo Source has completed thousands of applications and knows the best practices required to secure the largest rebate possible for our clients.
Let the transformation begin! Thermo Source’s implementation team will install the requested system. With over 12 years of experience, Thermo Source has mastered the implementation process without disruption to our customers operations. As needed, Thermo Source will gladly work on weekends or overnight.
