Laboratories consume about 5 to 10 times more energy per square foot than commercial office space due in part to air filtration requirements and energy-intensive equipment. Understanding that each lab facility is unique, Willdan provides a tailored, custom approach to identify near and long-term energy-saving opportunities that improve operational efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and save money on utility bills. Our services include expert engineering, financial and energy analysis support and utility incentive management.
