Noteworthy Feedback
""On behalf of -, I am writing to thank you for putting us in touch with Prof. Keith Goossen and his exceptional team. The energy assessment report and the recommendations have helped us better understand our system. It also enabled us to work on projects that have a direct impact on our energy consumption, hence helping us lower our energy bills. I am pleased to inform you that we have recently accepted a state grant to improve for our chiller/piping system. This would not have been possible without the excellent work done by the University of Delaware Mid-Atlantic Industrial Assessment Center.""
