Energy Performance Contracting


With aging infrastructure, rising energy costs, and the risk of energy price volatility, many businesses and organizations want to save energy and money through infrastructure improvement projects. Finding the capital to finance infrastructure upgrades, however, can be a challenge. Through an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), organizations and businesses can finance capital improvement projects by leveraging the future estimated savings resulting from the improvements.

SourceOne has served both as an Energy Services Company (ESCO), directly managing the ESPC, and as an owner’s representative managing other ESCO providers to streamline implementation and validate guaranteed savings. 



With SourceOne as your ESCO, you can be confident that you will maximize your energy savings. As a full-service energy management company, we have spent over 15 years helping our customers improve their energy infrastructure. Most importantly, unlike many ESCO’s, SourceOne is vendor neutral, so you can be sure that our only priority is to help you achieve your energy goals and save money.


Organizations should consider hiring an independent owner’s representative to manage their ESPC, particularly when implementing complex, multi-year or multi-site energy conservation projects. SourceOne will act on your behalf throughout the process to objectively evaluate the ESCOs investment grade audit and estimated energy savings; negotiate the contract to ensure the terms are favorable; oversee ECM implementation; and validate the measurement and verification of the ECMs.
