Small Building Tune-up

(Return to main Building Tune-up page)

Designed to provide a streamlined approach to building tune-ups, this service focuses on common improvements to operating efficiency that result in a quick return on investment. If your commercial facility is less than 75,000 square feet and has industrial process systems, such as a compressed air system, you may be eligible for SMECO’s Small Building Tune-up Services.

For projects participating in the Small Building Tune-up Program, up to $5,000 (per project) is available for additional equipment-level metering installed to baseline the equipment before and after the tune-up to help verify savings. Project pre-approval is required.

Please review the Terms and Conditions for online applications.
