Metro Energy Overview

Metro Energy Solutions is an independent energy services and energy consulting company headquartered in West Caldwell (Essex County), New Jersey that specializes in energy efficient design, consulting and installation.

Metro Energy Solutions assists public and private sector clients in designing, installing and retrofitting mechanical and electrical equipment, building on-site cogeneration plants and implementing process improvements that use less energy and improve building comfort, while at the same time lowering the facility’s operating and maintenance costs.

Metro Energy has consulted on and implemented hundreds of energy and water conservation projects in the public sector in the State of New Jersey. Metro Energy is currently the energy consultant for many counties in the State of New Jersey and is assisting in implementing county-wide energy and water conservation initiatives. Metro Energy is also the State of New Jersey’s energy consultant.

Metro Energy Overview

Metro Energy Overview • Our commitment to provide outstanding service to our clients was recognized by

Our commitment to provide outstanding service to our clients was recognized by the United States Department of Energy, which presented Metro Energy with its Energy Champions Award for Local Government Partnership with Bergen County, NJ. There is only one annual award winner in this category nationally and it is considered one of the highest honors an energy services company can achieve.

Phase I: Facility Assessment (“Audit”) and Analysis

Facility Assessment (Audit) - Metro Energy will use a combination of resources that possess the skill levels required to perform a high quality energy efficiency analysis.

Metro Energy performs a complete building envelope assessment of the utility use in the facility that will include evaluating all mechanical and electrical equipment as well as identifying water conservation measures.

that will include evaluating all mechanical and electrical equipment as well as identifying water conservation measures.

Phase I: Facility Assessment (“Audit”) and Analysis

Client Consultation – Metro Energy will begin the process with an extensive client consultation which establishes project scope, objectives and priorities, roles and responsibilities, project time line, deliverables, and communication and feedback mechanisms.

Load Data Analysis – Metro Energy will collect 12 months of historical data and perform a load data analysis to determine the amount of energy and water used at a facility, when the energy or water is used (time of day, week and month) and the costs (tariff).

Site Visit – Metro Energy’s engineers will conduct site visits to evaluate mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment and identify energy and water conservation measures.

Roofs). Water Conservation (Low flow toilets, waterless urinals, faucet aerators, restricted flow shower heads).

Phase I: Facility Assessment (“Audit”) and Analysis

Calculation of Energy Savings – Metro Energy will perform detailed calculations of projected energy and water savings based on the proposed installation of each measure.

Utility Incentive Analysis– Metro Energy will perform a preliminary analysis to determine federal, state and utility company low-cost energy loans, grants, rebates, and similar programs to supplement financing of the energy and water conservation measures.

Financial Analysis – As part of the energy audit, Metro Energy will prepare a complete financial analysis. Metro Energy will identify projected energy savings as measured in kW, kWh, therms and energy and water cost savings. The analysis will also include operational savings if applicable. Metro Energy will provide estimated pricing for materials and labor. Metro Energy will calculate the maximum utility rebates and other financial incentives. Finally, Metro Energy will perform a life-cycle cost analysis in order for a municipality to have an order of magnitude of each project.

Phase II: Project Implementation

Engineering and Design - Based on the utility audit and analysis data, Metro Energy will begin the detailed engineering/design for each measure. During the detailed engineering phase Metro Energy will be responsible for the preparation of the technical specifications.

Bid Specification Implementation – Metro Energy will prepare specifications and assist the municipality in soliciting proposals for each energy and water conservation measure that was selected for implementation. Metro Energy will also be responsible for review and evaluation of the submissions. Upon review, Metro Energy will provide a written recommendation to the municipality.

Phase II: Project Implementation

Utility Incentive Administration – Metro Energy will oversee the contractor(s) and manage the identification, preparation, and submission of applications for federal, state and utility company low- cost energy loans, grants, rebates, and similar programs to supplement financing of the project recommendations; Metro Energy will oversee the contractor(s) in obtaining all local utility rebates on behalf of our client. This will entail Metro Energy preparing the required submittals and attending the site visits and ensuring the contractor(s) responds to all required utility requests for information.

Project Management Metro Energy will provide Project Management of contractors and subcontractors during the project implementation phases to ensure that projects are installed on time and within budget. This will include preparation of project time, cost and financing schedules, including significant interim milestones, preparation of progress reports during the implementation of any energy conservation measures, renewable energy systems, or green power purchases.
