Unfunded liabilities and aging infrastructure are always a source of concern. When budget constraints are an issue for energy project financing, Ameresco can turn these fiscal strains into sources of cash through different contract options that allow reinvestment into core assets and the reduction of operating costs.
Ameresco is also on top of innovative funding opportunities such as renewable energy certificates, grants, utility rebates and tax credits continuously in development at the federal and state levels. This allows for a complete and up-to-date evaluation of potential aid to finance renewable energy projects.
“By using the performance contract approach with Ameresco, we were able to address several important City priorities of improving our facilities, saving money and being environmentally proactive in reducing the use of energy…Ameresco assisted in securing financing for the project, which will be repaid through energy cost savings.”
–City of Lowell City Manager Bernie Lynch
