What is energy performance contracting?
Energy performance contracting is an innovative funding method in which an energy service company (ESCO) partners with you to take on a long-term project that tackles maintenance backlogs and facility improvements with energy efficient solutions, using the energy savings generated to pay for the larger project scope.
Once the ESCO performs an energy audit, they will make recommendations to you on where and how to improve operational and energy efficiency. The projected energy savings are guaranteed by the ESCO for the length of the project and the funds can be applied to further infrastructure updates, implementing state-of-the-art technology, and enriching the lives of those who live, work, learn, and play in your community.
