virginia

The Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) is a premiere recipient of an efficiency award from the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council (VAEEC).

The department was awarded in the government category. VADOC established the first energy services contract (ESCO) in the state. The story says that VADOC has completed four ESCO projects, has two in progress and one more in development. In total, the projects are worth about $100 million.

The story says that VADOC “tied energy efficiency to its public safety mission by creating an inmate training program in energy sector skills.”

Prisons and jails can be fruitful venues for energy upgrades and updates. In September, Ameresco announced that it has entered into an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons. Under terms of the contract, Ameresco will install energy and water conservation technology at the 776-acre Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, N.C. The contract is valued at $53.1 million.
