How does the Worship Facility score account for energy intensive equipment (eg: AV)? Follow

The model for Worship Facility is based on an analysis of the Department of Energy's Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) which includes a random sample of worship facilities from across the U.S.  The Worship Facility model accounts for a variety of common operating and physical characteristics in worship facility. Worship Facilities with more extensive audiovisual equipment (e.g. for internet broadcasting) typically have computers to support their activities and "computers" is an input for the rating model data.  As a result, these worship facilities will be fairly evaluated as compared with facilities that do not have computers or internet broadcasts.
