The SmartBuilding Advantage® approach to energy efficiency solutions is different. Duke Energy has adopted a multistage methodology to provide a custom solution for every partner in this program. Our assessments are systematic and performed by leading industry professionals.
"Our people said Duke nailed it. We looked at the report and were impressed. The real value in this was the engineering analysis – the incentive was critical for approval, but the engineering was very important." – Hospital Customer
Duke Energy will bring you a team of Professional Engineers that will prioritize the most cost-effective and innovative technologies to help you realize your goals for energy efficiency.
"SmartBuilding Advantage® allowed us to test some things that we would not have on our own. And it allowed us to get closer to smart grid solutions." – Office Building Customer
As an energy utility, we are not selling you a product or a brand name. We look at your needs from an independent perspective and recommend a comprehensive solution utilizing the best technology available – regardless of brand name.
Low Upfront Cost
"We are learning how to take a broader look at what we can do and what the impact can be. The program is also accelerating what we do and expanding what we consider." – Educational Facility Customer
Cost to enter the program is minimal. In fact, should you maintain participation through implementation, it is likely that your assessment costs will be covered by the Smart $aver® incentives available to you.
Exit at Any Time
At no point in the program are you obligated to move forward through each stage. If, for example, you decide after your on-site assessment that your company is unable to continue, you are only asked to pay for your share of the cost (50% of the total) of the on-site assessment.
