EPIC Testimonial: “A Truly Amazing Tool…”


As a pioneer in cloud-based building energy performance assessment technology, SRS has earned a reputation for developing cutting edge software, data, and predictive analytics solutions. Our latest innovation is the Energy Performance Improvement Calculator (EPIC™).

EPIC continues to be enthusiastically adopted across the ecosystem of energy efficiency project professionals for its ability to provide building owners with the project financial information they need to make a confident investment in energy efficiency.

The result is EPIC helps project professionals drive sales of higher ticket, higher margin equipment.

Building Owner Testimonial

“Faced with an unexpected $50,000 capital expense to replace our medical office’s heat pump, we used EPIC to evaluate the energy cost savings that would occur if we added solar PV and LED lighting to the project.

The result: While adding the new measures increased the total cost to $137,000, the result was nothing short of spectacular:

  • Energy cost savings over the life of the equipment exceeds $355,000
  • The building asset value will rise by $160,000
  • First year GHG emissions reduction: 30 tons
  • Lifetime GHG emissions reduction: 664 tons.

In short, this project is a win-win for us, the contractors, the environment, and the people of the Bay Area – all thanks to EPIC – truly an amazing tool which gave me the information I needed to make a confident investment decision in energy efficiency!
