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 public
agencies, helping them navigate the process and ensuring that the service
providers 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 our
Pre-Approved 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.
