According to Schneider Electric, a new trend is emerging in an area where progress in energy efficiency is unexpected – the Southern United States.

Schneider says the reason is two-fold: increased sustainability pressures coupled with the reality of maintaining aging infrastructure with growing financial constraints.

Schneider Electric has seen an acceleration of Southern communities leveraging energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) to help fund critical infrastructure renovations that they could not otherwise afford. This financial vehicle allows cities and schools to pay for capital improvements over time without increasing taxes or their debt load.
