Energy Conservation

Higher energy prices have increased awareness of energy conservation opportunities. Energy is one of the single largest controllable operating expenses for most businesses. However, many do not invest in energy conservation because they do not understand the financial costs and benefits of implementing or upgrading their facilities. Maffett Loftis Engineering specializes in identifying, evaluating, and designing projects that reduce energy expense and generate compelling financial paybacks for our clients. Maffett Loftis Engineering stays abreast of the latest advances in efficient technologies and uses them to engineer top-quality projects.
