What does this data mean?
Baseline: The annual energy consumption before the project
Guaranteed: CMTA's guaranteed energy use for the client post-project

While our project has generated savings for the school district, most impressively, several of our buildings have met Energy Star requirements and are certified. As a result, our district is not only saving funds on utilities, but we are also having a more positive impact on the environment....
