Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC)

A budget-neutral funding solution for private and public-sector energy projects

Federal, state, and local governments and private entities are often saddled with aging, inefficient infrastructure that wastes energy, drains critical financial resources, and negatively impacts the environment. While optimizing energy systems will reduce energy consumption and utility bills, many organizations lack the startup capital or personnel to tackle much-needed infrastructure upgrades. Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) is a budget-neutral financing approach that allows entities to make building improvements that reduce energy and water use while increasing operational efficiency.
