1. Ensure they have the required licensure and certifications.

Like most professionals, energy consultants require specific licensure and certifications to perform the work that they do. To ensure you’re hiring a legitimate energy consultant and not just some random person on the street, verify they have documentation that is in accordance with New York requirements (or whatever state you might live in).

2. Research their reputation in the community.

Instead of just offering empty promises, a reputable energy consultant will have an established reputation in the community. You can check their reputation by reading online reviews or by asking fellow business owners about their experience with the energy consultant.

You can also check and see if the consultant has a portion of their website with legitimate testimonials and hear about client experiences there.

3. Check that they have a well-rounded set of skills.

An energy consultant should have an array of energy management skills. At Energy Network, our energy consultants are well versed in energy procurement and management, lighting savings, water savings and savings in waste management.

4. Make sure they’re upfront about the services they will offer your business.

Most energy consultants perform an audit of your energy spending before making an official and finalized plan. Make sure the energy consultant lets you know exactly how they plan on helping you reduce your overall energy costs for the long term.

5. Make certain they put you first.

Above everything else, make sure the energy consultant you choose will always put your best interests first — not theirs. Energy Network consultants are vendor-neutral, so we don’t have any ties or commitments to one specific energy company. We truly find what is the best solution for you and your business.
