Financing Capital Projects Through Energy Management

Web Abstract: 
Performance contracting, a flexible energy savings program, has varied definitions and applications. But, at its core, a school district is guaranteed a specific amount of savings by its local energy savings company (ESCO). The author lists the age of U.S. school facilities, the escalating results of deferred maintenance decisions, and rising energy costs due to inefficient energy equipment and practices, as problems facing many resource-poor school districts. He sees performance contracting as an effective method of addressing energy costs as school funding dwindles.
