Lead by Example
Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) help you save money, make facilities more comfortable and enjoy all the benefits of green upgrades. Here’s how they work. You agree to implement a set of energy efficiency and renewable energy measures and those measures are guaranteed to save enough money to finance their full cost. Connecticut Green Bank assists the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) in administering the program for Connecticut municipalities and state agencies. We offer pre-qualified contractors, significant technical support and standardized contract documents to help streamline the process for you.
