Key Concepts

  • Collect and organize historical energy data by evaluating bills and reports.
  • Compare different units of measure by converting each (kilowatts, therms, gallons, etc.) into a single unit of measure, such as the British Thermal Unit (BTU).
  • Calculate savings by monitoring your energy usage and comparing it to your baseline.
