Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting Program

Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting Program

Energy Performance Contracting is a financing mechanism used to pay for energy efficiency improvements all at once that are then paid back through annual energy savings. The AEO provides technical assistance to state agencies and public institutions of higher learning, helping them navigate the process and ensuring that the Pre-Qualified Energy Service Companies (see a list below) maintain the highest levels of quality. Furthermore, the AEO actively provides education and outreach on the components of Energy Performance Contracting, maintains contract documents, and sets industry standards for Energy Service Companies. For a detailed list of how the AEO-approved process works along with a checklist of important milestones and responsibilities, please look at the AEPC Program Manual below.  Please contact Chet Howland at or (501)682-7319 with specific questions or concerns.
