Track your Energy and Water Use

Congregations of all sizes can make a commitment to save energy. The first step to managing your energy and water use is to take stock of how your property is currently performing. To find out if your property is using a lot or a little energy compared to others, benchmark it in Portfolio Manager, EPA’s free online energy management tool. Once you've entered your energy bills for the past 12 months and some information about your property, Portfolio Manager will provide information about your property's performance. Benchmarking is the first step to identifying opportunities to save energy and money.
