What is Energy Performance Contracting?
West Virginia State Code authorizes public entities and county boards
of education to pursue energy conservation programs that will provide
long term operating and energy cost reduction.
Energy Performance Contracts provide an option for county school
systems and other public entities to pay for much needed facility
improvements by providing a guarantee of energy savings which can be
used to pay for the facility improvements; in other words, the energy
savings project creates a revenue stream in the current operating budget
which is used to pay for the energy savings project over time. The link
below provides the full text from the Code of West Virginia for laws
governing the use of these contracts for School Districts, Counties,
Municipal Corporations and State Agencies.
