"WE OFFER YOUR COMPANY THE FASTEST & MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO START MEETING YOUR ENERGY & GREENHOUSE GAS BENCHMARKING GOALS"
CARBON THRESHOLD offers a complete setup and ongoing reporting in Energy Star's Portfolio Manager. With our thorough knowledge of Portfolio Manager, we can help you to meet or exceed your targeted threshold of energy benchmarking to reduce your carbon imprint. Let us manage your 'Portfolio Manager' with your completed building survey from us, along with copies of at least one year of past utility bills; we will review of all information for accuracy and do a primary upload into Portfolio Manager. We then can offer you with continual updating of your portfolio choices throughout the year. With access to Portfolio Manager's website, you and your company officials will be able to see your energy reduction on a monthly or quarterly basis, depending on your updating frequency. By viewing these reports frequently, it will also help you identify your energy reduction savings from any newly implemented energy efficiency retrofits.
By taking the Energy Star Pledge and setting your reduction goal by 10%, your company will play a vital role in achieving a greener footprint. After 12 months of energy consumption data, Portfolio Manager will then compute your building's "energy efficiency rating" by taking in a number of different factors: size, location, year build, number of workers/tenants, size % if it's heated and/or cooled, # of computers, parking area, etc. If your building has a rating is '75' or higher, you will be able to apply for the prestigious ES Label Award. Your company can proudly display this award and most importantly be listed as an ES certified rated building.
With the new focus on our carbon imprint, local and state agencies are also mandating that you document your energy usage in Portfolio Manager. Many major cities are now requiring annual compliance reports from ESPM, like New York City's NYC LL84. It won't be long before Clark County or the State of Nevada starts enforcing similar types of regulations.
The accuracy of these reports will be dependent on the receiving all the correct building documentation & all the monthly utility bills on a timely basis.
CARBON THRESHOLD also offers preparation of Clark County's Department Air Quality & Environmental Management 'Annual Emission Inventory Report' and data inputting for your future annual compliance reports. Our service offers a timely, complete detailed annual report for the Responsible Official and upon review, ready to be submitted with just your signature in ink!
With a copy of your Source Permit, Technical Support Document, and annual equipment runtime hours, we will build you a customized spreadsheet. Depending on your preference, runtime hours could be inputted on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis, then calculating your YTD 'PTE' numbers and total 'RUNTIME' hours. By monitoring these gases on a consistent basis and overseeing the required documentation, you will be doing your responsible part by not exceeding your runtime hours and/or threshold levels of PTE pollutants that is set for your facility.
Let us help your company stay compliant with your annual Air Quality Report, with a thorough and detailed customized spreadsheet enabling you to track your annual emissions on a year to year basis.
