When your facility wastes energy, you're impacting more than just the environment; you're also hurting your profit, productivity, and people.

IAC grant amount

Unlock and maximize your facility's profit with an in-depth assessment through the Department of Energy's Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) Program.  

After the assessment, small and medium-sized manufacturing firms are eligible for grants up to $300,000 at 50% cost share. These grants are to offset the costs of implementing upgrades found in your assessment.   Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed quarterly. As a provider of IAC-equivalent assessments, Michaels Energy can complete energy audits and provide all the supporting materials needed for your grant application.

Why do I need an energy assessment?

Grant applications will only be accepted if the IAC-equivalent assessment is performed. The assessment looks at the equipment and operations within your facility to find ways to save and optimize; ultimately helping your bottom line. Once we've completed the evaluation, we'll provide you with a full report of the recommendations for improvement. This includes equipment costs, annual energy savings, annual non-energy savings, and payback periods. The results of the assessment are used to support your Implementation Grant application.

Minimizing waste is not just about reducing costs but building a sustainable future. Our team works closely with your organization to implement targeted energy efficiency solutions, significantly reducing your environmental footprint while maximizing your bottom line.
