>Yes Cindy, we here in Florida Central District P2 office of the Department 
>of Environmental Protection  worked with the University of Central Florida  -
>Industrial Engineering Department or whatever it was called, and had them 
>do an energy assessment for our client. It was funded by the DOE 
>program.  It was an excellent experience. They sent in an audit  team of 
>students and professors. The professors had been doing energy assessements 
>for 10 to 12 years. The did a great job, made some very useful money 
>saving recommendations. Produced a written report with recommendations and 
>even gave the client a free copy of a software program that they could use 
>to compare the energy efficiency of various brands of new machinery they 
>might consider purchasing in future. All for no charge.
>It was a good experience.
