This research was focused on small manufacturing businesses and energy-efficiency programs on the federal, state, and local levels. Small manufacturing businesses have many types of energy-efficiency programs available to them from several different sources. Sources of information for these programs provide technical explanations that are difficult to understand. In addition, different qualifications are required for participation in different programs. The intention of this research was to form a manual for small manufacturing businesses that are energy-intensive. The purpose of the manual is to make the information about energy-efficiency programs more accessible and comprehendible for owners and managers of small manufacturing businesses.
