Energy Saving Performance Contracts, CL # 853
Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) Survey CL # 853

The New York State, Office of General Services (OGS), Procurement Services is conducting a survey to help determine if there is a need for a centralized (statewide) Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC).


ESPC is a budget-neutral approach to make building improvements that reduce energy and water use and increase operational efficiency. By partnering with an energy service company (ESCO), a facility owner can use an ESPC to pay for today's facility upgrades with tomorrow's energy savings—without tapping into capital budgets. State and local governments could implement ESPC projects in their own facilities, as well as promote and support ESPC projects through ESPC programs.


Federal and State Agencies have used the ESPC contracting process since the late 1990’s to significantly reduce energy and operating costs and make progress toward meeting sustainability goals. Equipment typically included in the scope of ESPC projects are; lighting, water fixtures, HVAC equipment, HVAC controls, solar PV equipment and in some cases building envelope upgrades.

It’s important for us to understand your perspective and invite you to please take our survey no later than Wednesday, December 5th by clicking the link below.


We welcome your feedback and thank you for your time. If you have any questions or would like to provide additional information please contact Todd Kayser.
