Why Hire an Energy Consultant
You’re running a business, whether large or small, you may …
State and local governments are faced with many challenges — aging facilities, deferred maintenance, increasing energy costs, capital generation, and the ongoing pandemic, just to name a few. We know how overwhelming it can be to juggle it all and find solutions that meet your community’s specific needs, all while remaining fiscally responsible.
As an energy efficiency and facility solutions provider, SitelogIQ is dedicated to making buildings better by implementing measures that improve the health and safety of occupants, benefit our planet, and maximize facility performance — and identify funding to make it possible.
Our approach to any project focuses on delivering energy infrastructure upgrades to support infrastructure resiliency and create real bottom-line cost savings on energy, maintenance, and future capital improvement expenditures.
We design, plan, and implement customized facility solutions that address energy use, sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions reduction, resiliency, and cost savings. After evaluating your energy consumption and related operating costs, we provide you with our recommendations and include the latest technology and methodologies to best meet your operational goals and objectives. We also offer funding solutions and have experts who can guide you through the process.
From comprehensive lighting programs, HVAC retrofits, trash management systems, and temperature control system updates to co-generation plants and renewable energy systems, among others, we can help you make facility upgrades that ensure energy and operational savings, which you can then use to pay for your capital improvement projects.
SitelogIQ is an energy services company, accredited at the highest level, by the National Association of Energy Service Companies. We continue to be recognized for achieving and maintaining the highest standards of excellence in the industry. Additionally, we are members of the Design Lighting Consortium (DLC), the California League of Cities, Local Government Commission and the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.

Extreme weather patterns, wildfires, rolling blackouts, and an ongoing pandemic have cities feeling more vulnerable and less prepared. Local government facility managers can support municipal leaders and help local government facilities navigate difficult and uncertain times by creating more efficient and sustainable environments.
It is important to note the unique challenges local government facilities and public sector buildings face to better understand the various areas of improvement. For example, during peak operating hours, local and state government facilities are often more crowded than traditional buildings, with a high density of people in areas such as courtrooms, libraries, community buildings, and other public services areas. With higher volumes of people present, systems are often taxed. Conversely, when these same public service areas are empty, having the tools to monitor systems that optimize the building’s needs based on demand use will better serve the facility long-term.
Many facility owners and managers share the challenge of maintaining assets that have a finite useful life span. Too often, the focus remains on the short-term needs of buildings and occupants, so when expensive replacements such as roofs, boilers, and ventilation systems among others become a necessity, the funds aren’t always readily available to pay for them. At SitelogIQ, we offer a proprietary tool, called mySiteIQ, to help prepare our customers for these subsequent deferred maintenance expenses. We work with building owners to develop two program plans – a comprehensive Master Facility Plan (MFP) and a Long Term Facility Maintenance (LTFM) Plan to allow proper planning and limit risk.
A comprehensive MFP includes all facility needs, including technology, space use, and programming demands. An effective MFP can identify funding options and the highest priority projects while managing multiple projects with various funding sources.
Government buildings are essential structures with complex systems requiring careful monitoring and maintenance to function properly. Municipal preparedness is key to keeping these buildings and internal workings operating smoothly, efficiently and providing a healthy and safe environment for those who occupy the spaces. Some of the most important local government facility management solutions include:
One of the most effective ways to improve facility management in municipal buildings is to help unify systems and implement smart devices to optimize efficiency, insight, and performance. While individual strategies will vary depending on the municipal building, an effective plan may include:
