October 31, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Ameresco energy manageThe city of Redmond, Ore., hired Ameresco for a comprehensive $1.2 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to address energy efficiency in 11 city buildings. As part of the project, Ameresco conducted an energy audit on more than 272,000 square feet of building space and identified energy conservation measures that it will design, construct, commission and verify.

The project will include lighting and controls upgrades and the installation of two 10 kW solar PV systems at a city sports field.

The city of Redmond is expected to realize more than $100,000 annually in energy savings once the 11 projects are completed in late-spring 2015. In addition, the city expects to leverage the energy savings of the project to secure about $159,000 in utility incentives from the Energy Trust of Oregon.
