Description

This project provides a means to implement energy savings performance contracting as a mechanism to reduce the County's energy usage and perform strategic facility upgrades with significantly reduced capital costs. These contracts performed by Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) have been used extensively by the Federal government and other State and local jurisdictions to accomplish energy saving retrofits in a variety of facility applications. For each facility proposed, a unique prescriptive energy conservation analysis (audit) is conducted. Savings are associated with each element (energy conservation measure) of the analysis. Ultimately, the compilation of the measures defines the project. Third-party funding (bonds or commercial loans) covers the cost of the contract. A key feature of Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) is that General Obligation (G.O.) bonds are not required for the contract costs. A financing mechanism is initiated to cover the cost of the contract and the repayment of the debt is guaranteed through the energy savings. G.O. Bonds are required to cover associated staffing costs.
