Nevada State Office of Energy: School District Success Story – Energy Savings Performance Contracting
School District Success Story – Energy Savings Performance Contracting
Nevada State Office of Energy 2011
Nevada’s Douglas County School District, the sixth largest school district in the state, had mounting maintenance needs and failing infrastructure with aging buildings. This was compounded by a budget already stretched to the limit, declining revenues and rising utility costs. Energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) fit the bill. A $5.1 million project implemented in 2008 is paying for itself through $456,000 in guaranteed annual savings.
