Basic business fleet transportation seminar "Energy Services Companies" (ESCOs) are a new way to cut energy costs with no upfront cost to the owner of a facility. These energy service companies guarantee savings...and take their fee out of the expected savings. Many government agencies are now looking at this creative financial strategy to speed up the implementation of needed upgrades such as insulation, high efficiency electrical appliances and wiring, and even solar installations.

The Department of General Services of California is implementing such a program. You'll find details on their website. Here is one example of their call for proposals.

Energy Efficiency Projects (RFQ 07.01)

The state of California is seeking qualified energy services companies (ESCOs) to submit qualifications for performing energy services performance contracts.

A performance contract is an agreement made between the state and an ESCO, in which an ESCO guarantees energy savings that are expected to result from the implementation of an energy project.

Performance contracts are an essential component of a comprehensive state energy efficiency program, as described in the Governor's Green Building Initiative.

The state's primary energy efficiency investment goal is to capitalize on energy efficiency measure opportunities at each facility through equipment performance savings.

The California Department of General Services has received 12 timely responses to the RFQ, and is in the process of finalizing the rankings.

Final pool creation and notification date has been extended to Friday, June 29, 2007.
