The DES Energy Program is a national leader in developing and managing energy savings performance contracts. Acting as the owner’s advocate, the Energy Program staff delivers professional expertise and contract management services. By leveraging capital investments, customers can achieve efficiencies, improve facilities, and yield carbon reductions in their publically–owned facilities. The ESPC program also provides value to customers by managing risk through guaranteed total project costs, equipment performance and energy savings.
Upgrading to an energy efficient infrastructure helps reduce long-term operations and maintenance costs. This allows customers to be better financial stewards while achieving their mission, so that Washington is a better place to live, learn, and work.
Customers We Serve
Clients participating in this program will sign an Interagency Agreement (IAA) with the DES Energy Program. This allows the client to select an ESCO from the Master Contract directly without the traditional RFP/RFQ and bid process, and allows DES and the ESCO to evaluate the client's facilities for energy efficiency opportunities. The DES Energy Program assigns an energy engineer to assist the client throughout the process.
