From lowering utility bills to modernizing buildings, reducing maintenance costs and improving the building environment for occupants, an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) project can prove incredibly valuable for most organizations, all with little or no cost to the client.

Selecting a good Energy Services Company (ESCO) and keeping some basic principles in mind will help make your ESPC a successful one.
