One competitive RFP issued at the state level for energy service companies relieves individual public entities of the task of issuing a solicitation, reviewing bids, and selecting an energy services company (ESCO) on a one-time each-time basis. The public entity requiring a facility improvement can completely by-pass this time consuming process by selecting from a list of state pre-approved ESCOs. Note: procurement codes differ from state-to-state; therefore a review of each individual state's procurement regulations must be made to insure legislative compliance before implementing this step.
