Environment + Energy Leader – Minnesota City Uses $2.5 Million Energy Savings Performance Contract to Upgrade 12 Buildings
A citywide energy efficiency project was recently completed for the City of Virginia, Minnesota. Financed by a $2.5 million Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), improvements made across the City of Virginia will guarantee energy cost savings and an overall reduction in municipal energy demand.
In 2019, the City of Virginia partnered with Ameresco in an effort to utilize energy efficiency technologies to reduce municipal energy consumption and operating costs. Ameresco designed and implemented the project across 12 city buildings that involved LED facility lighting upgrades, LED street lighting upgrades, building envelope improvements, mechanical insulation, HVAC upgrades, and building automation system upgrades.
