Include your hourly and fixed costs (Tip: This is a good exercise to determine what your competitors may charge for a service, so that you can set your own fees. Consider conducting an internet search on the average cost of a commercial energy assessment, subtracting 10-15% for fixed costs (travel and incidentals), then divide by the number of hours you expect to work on the project); and,A discussion on what further investigation or energy management program development activities could be completed following the initial energy assessment scope; Your proposal should be a brief as possible (customers do not want to read long proposals), be APA formatted and referenced.
