Funding Energy Conservation Measures

Establish Budget-Neutral Financing by Aligning Energy Savings to Project Cost


With tight budgets and limited resources, dealing with aging infrastructure is a challenge every school faces. For many schools, deferred maintenance becomes the knee-jerk response, but there is a better solution. Prioritizing energy upgrades is a good place to start, since those projects can often pay for themselves. Updating to more energy-efficient equipment often produces savings that can be used to fund your upgrades, creating a cash-flow neutral or shared savings scenario that produces a return on investment.

Replacing old systems with energy efficient alternatives not only saves money on energy costs, but can also pay for itself using a cash-flow neutral solution scenario or produce immediate returns with a shared savings funding model.
