Tips for Finding an SPP

ENERGY STAR service and product provider (SPP) partners are companies that assist commercial buildings with running more efficiently by helping clients with benchmarking energy performance, improving efficiency, and earning recognition.

To partner with ENERGY STAR, a company must demonstrate a minimum level of past and ongoing experience working with Portfolio Manager and earning ENERGY STAR certification for their client buildings.

The selection of experienced, competent providers and other energy professionals is critical to the success of your energy efficiency project. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind as you choose a company:

  • Ask whether the company is an ENERGY STAR partner.
  • Ask for multiple current references that you can contact about work the company performed.
  • Ask the company to provide a cost-estimate in writing for any work they will do.
  • Make sure they are licensed and carry liability and workers' compensation insurance.
  • The company should certify that their work conforms to state and local regulations and codes.
  • Make sure the company has experience and will use energy-efficient equipment.
