EPA relies on licensed professionals to ensure that commercial buildings certified as ENERGY STAR are what they say they are — top energy performers that haven’t sacrificed comfort for efficiency. As part of the certification process, a building owner or manager is required to have a licensed professional verify that the information in their application is accurate and complete before it’s submitted to EPA.
Why should you verify applications? Because it will expand your business opportunities. By providing this verification, you not only ensure the integrity of the ENERGY STAR program, you tap a growing market of building owners and managers seeking ENERGY STAR certification (and possibly other services).
