Energy Performance Contracts

An energy performance contract (EPC) provides an alternative funding source for a state agency to repair and/or upgrade its facilities. Energy performance contracts use avoided future energy costs from increased facility energy efficiency as the method to fund facility improvements over the life of the lease-purchase energy performance contract.
