noresco energy manageNorth Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) signed a $3.8 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) with NORESCO for work on the Greensboro, NC, campus.

The project is funded by reductions in energy usage over a 17.25-year contract term. It includes lighting, steam system and weatherization improvements, installation of new heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls, retro-commissioning at selected buildings and a preventive maintenance program. Construction is expected to occur over 14 months.

As part of the agreement, NORESCO guarantees annual energy consumption savings of more than $300,000 after the improvements are fully implemented.

University students participated hands-on as the project began in 2012 with energy audits of campus buildings and equipment.

NORESCO is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies.
