Southland Energy has been approved by the US Department of Energy as a qualified energy service company. For federal agencies that are looking to reduce energy costs and meet renewable goals, this certification means they may now directly engage Southland Energy to perform energy services work.
Southland Energy has completed over $1.3 billion in design-build federal government projects, which it says makes it especially qualified to implement bundled, energy-focused projects.
Established by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), the US Department of Energy’s Qualified List of Energy Service Companies was created in accordance with the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and 10 CFR 436.
In August, the US Army awarded contracts to a group of 22 qualified solar technology contractors. Solar is one of four technologies being awarded under a $7 billion Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production for Department of Defense installations program.
