A leading property management firm with nearly $1 billion in assets based in North Carolina had an office building that was uncomfortably warm and experiencing large utility spikes. After several failed attempts to identify the issue, the firm called in CCAC Building Solutions to determine the root cause.

  • Industry: Office

  • Location: North Carolina

  • Solutions: Utility Dashboard; ENERGY STAR; Controls


Using EnergyPrint’s Utility Dashboard, CCAC quickly identified where to explore further, allowing them to complete their evaluation in less time. After discovering a multitude of issues, CCAC recommended replacing several rooftop units and upgrading the building’s control system. Knowing this recommendation would burden the firm’s current budget, CCAC used EnergyPrint’s benchmarking capabilities to compare the proposed investment with projected ROI, including:

  • Greatly reduced utility bills, service costs and engineering fees
  • Less time handling tenant complaints and issues
  • Reduced vacancy risk

This approach helped CCAC’s new client see the long-term value of taking their recommendation.


By leveraging EnergyPrint’s utility data analytics and benchmarking, CCAC achieved both near-term and long-term business benefits:

  • Achieved 25% reduction in utility costs, exceeding client’s ROI plan in only three years
  • Earned ENERGY STAR® certification 
  • Gained trust and confidence from a new client – who now tracks energy savings and ROI plans for an additional six buildings

"Data that gives a client confidence to take that next step is worth gold to us. EnergyPrint’s analytics equip us with the insight we need to show our clients we can really help them and that it’s worth the investment."
