New Construction

​​​​In the United States, nearly half of all new nonresidential construction, by value, is energy-efficient, green building. Don’t be left behind. Your new building or major renovation will stand for the next 50–100 years, given an average lifecycle. That means you have an important opportunity to get it right from the start by surpassing standard practices and exceeding energy code requirements.

By integrating energy efficiency into plans for new construction or major renovations, you can start saving on operating costs from day one—and create a more comfortable, safer environment for your occupants. The sooner you start thinking about energy efficiency during the design process, the better. 

Our comprehensive building modeling services, available at no cost to you, can help you plan and achieve your energy efficiency goals. PECO incentives cover whole building systems, as well as interior and exterior lighting, for new construction and major renovation projects.
