When you’re responsible for the operation of a federal agency with a critical national security mission, it’s imperative to select an experienced energy services partner to ensure energy is available when and where it’s needed. As a prequalified US Department of Energy ESCO and a certified Energy Star® partner, Southland Energy has a $1.5 billion track record of helping federal agencies significantly lower their operational costs, reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and increase their energy efficiency and resilience.

When working in partnership with federal organizations to design, build, and in many cases, own, operate and manage energy projects, we utilize a variety of contracting options, including:


  • Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC)
  • Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESC)
  • Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)
  • Energy Services Agreement (ESA)
  • Enhanced Use Leasing (EUL)

These contracting vehicles use private sector resources for the development and implementation of comprehensive energy efficiency and facility infrastructure upgrades. Through the cost savings generated by solutions that increase energy efficiency and reduce emissions, we can develop energy projects that eliminate the need for agency funding altogether. Our guaranteed performance-based solutions not only reduce operational expenses, but also improve the long-term energy efficiency and resiliency of your facilities and help you finally defeat the endless cycle of deferred maintenance.

As a recognized expert in federal agency energy solutions, we have served all types of government facilities from military hospitals to the Pentagon. We are proud to employ over 80 professional engineers, LEED accredited professionals, certified energy managers, and project developers that collaborate to determine the most time-efficient and cost-effective energy solutions for you. Our in-house expertise includes energy modeling, building automation controls, and computational fluid dynamics in addition to commissioning and retro-commissioning, operations and maintenance, and testing and balancing, which provides us with more budget and scheduling control throughout the entire process.
