The DATA Source: The ROI Calculations are intended to serve as a guide to help business owners and property managers see the hierarchy of performance and payback. Given variations in energy consumption, house size, and climate zone, results will naturally vary. The calculations are based on comprehensive research and a combination of reports from the U.S. Department of Energy, the EPA, ENERGY STAR® Programs, US Green Building Council’s LEED Programs, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), International Energy Conservation Code, PLUS information directly from University Studies, Architects, Manufacturer Specifications, Distributors, seasoned Builders and Installers, and Business Owners with actual Performance Feedback. This small business resource is structured on a 2,500 sq. ft. commercial 'unit' of ten employees so that business owners can easily do the math as it relates to their own business. This aggregated information and ROI model is (C) 2009 GREENandSAVE.com
