Government agencies looking for energy savings have a proven way to reduce energy consumption without the need for appropriating capital funds. Through ESPCs private sector companies finance and install new energy efficient equipment in federal buildings.
ESPCs are a win-win because, in exchange for a pre-determined price, the chosen ESCO guarantees future energy savings, which are used to pay for the energy efficiency upgrades, with excess savings accruing to the federal government. In fact, payment to the ESCO is contingent upon realizing that guaranteed annual savings stream.
At a time when federal agencies are looking to control expenditures, saving on water, electrical, heating and cooling costs (and much more) an ESPC is a smart decision—one that is literally guaranteed to pay off.
The FPCC is focused on accelerating the pace, easing the approval process and increasing the number of federal performance contracts with the federal government.
