The first step in reducing energy costs is measuring how, when, and where facilities use energy.
T4 Engineering is headed by Michael A. Trzesniowski, PE CEM CEP. We
are a consulting business focused on energy conservation and management, as
well as educational facility engineering. Our mission is to provide
practical advice to our clients to enable them to focus on their primary
business. The principal officer has worked in and around the electric
utility business since 1980 and experienced the transition from a "widows
and orphans stock" workplace to Enron and deregulation. A good energy
consultant is essentially a low-cost, high-return investment for a company
because a fraction of the fees should be recovered from timely advice.
Anything less means the consultant isn't working for you.

"Thousands of engineers can design bridges, calculate strains and
stresses, and draw up specifications for machines,
but the great engineer is the [person] who can tell whether the bridge
or machine should be built at all, where it should be built, and when."
