If you have ever been on a job site or tried to order parts, you have probably realized that contractors and electricians have some—let's say creative—names for things. Slang terms can mean different things to different people, and it is especially important to make sure you know what product you are talking about when you are ordering medium voltage products. If not, things can blow up—literally!

- ENERGY AUDITS
- RENEWABLE ENERGY
Lighting represents the largest source of electricity consumption in a typical commercial building. But it doesn’t have to be that way in your building. Van Meter lighting experts can conduct a lighting audit to determine how well your current lighting system suits your needs, and then suggest changes to improve lighting quality while reducing lighting energy usage and utility bills. We can also help you incorporate adequate amounts of daylight into your building with dimmers, controls, sensors, and other lighting solutions.
Our team of energy-efficiency professionals walks you through the details of your building’s energy use, identifying areas of potential energy waste. Then they recommend solutions to help you cut usage (lighting controls to bring in more daylight, efficient LED lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, etc.). And if you’re not sure how to fund these energy-efficiency initiatives, we can help you identify rebates, credits, and incentives.
Economically viable renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, and geothermal, are natural, continuous resources. As renewable energy technology improves, and as the government and utilities provide investment incentives, costs are becoming increasingly competitive. Even if you’ve never explored renewable energy as an option before, Van Meter can educate you about the options and help you select the system that’s most appropriate for your building and your site. There’s never been a better time to consider renewable energy as a way to achieve year-round utility savings.
