Energy Performance Contracts
Meeting energy needs
There has never been a better time to consider an Energy Performance Contract (EPC). Power Smart funding can help Power Smart Partners with an Energy Performance Contract project.
In times of increased financial constraint and shrinking operating budgets, facility planners and building operators must find new ways to meet energy needs without compromising on service delivery. Energy Performance Contracts provide an attractive option for facility managers and planners.
An Energy Performance Contract is an agreement with an Energy Service Company (ESCO) that enables building owners to carry out infrastructure upgrades without financial risk or capital dollars and pay for the project from energy savings. If you have multiple facilities that require energy efficiency upgrades this may be an option for you.
