GSA Seeks Contractors to Improve Energy Efficiency of 30 Buildings
March 23, 2012
The General Services Administration is seeking energy savings performance contracts to retrofit 30 federal buildings to be more energy efficient, according to an agency announcement Thursday.
The buildings — including office complexes, courthouses and customs houses across the nation — total about 117 million square feet of space. They are listed at ESPC Final Challenge.
Under an ESPC, a vendor pays the upfront investment for building renovations and retrofits in exchange for payments from the government's energy savings over time. President Obama in a December memo directed agencies to award a combined $2 billion in ESPCs over the next two years.
