Framingham Saves $380,000 per Year with ESPC
The Town of Framingham, Massachusetts, is partnering with Ameresco on a comprehensive $6 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to improve town buildings. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2016. The project includes energy efficiency measures that will save $380,000 annually.
The ESPC is a central tool to the town’s commitment to lower its energy consumption by 20 percent over the next several years. Under the ESPC, Ameresco conducted an energy audit on nearly 2 million square feet of building space and identified 93 energy conservation projects that it will design, construct, commission, monitor and verify. Some of the measures include lighting system upgrades, integrated and new energy management systems, infiltration reductions, transformers, and new heating, ventilation and cooling systems. Ameresco also has developed a street lighting system that will upgrade nearly 5,000 streetlight fixtures.
Ameresco is an international company with its corporate headquarters in the Town of Framingham, Massachusetts. Ameresco first began working with Framingham in 2013.
