It's possible that the company wants to sell the building/facility and left the power, water, heat on, so the building would remain in good condition and pipes wouldn't freeze, etc. in anticipation of a future sale.

The company is also leaving a ton of assets inside such as manufacturing equipment, office equipment, etc, could this have any effect on this decision?

Hi again, and thanks for your reply.

Yes, if the owner is planning to sell the facilty, they may feel it will 'sweeten the deal' to leave the equipment you mention, as an added incentive. However, if the company is in debt, it may be planning to sell these items off, to help satisfy their financial obligations, and that may be another reason they have chosen to keep the power and heat on, so the equipment is not destroyed by extreme temperature conditions.
