K-12, College & University Services

Dorms, classrooms, dining halls, gyms, conference centers, labs, sports complexes and more create an entire energy ecosystem that has tremendous variability in demand, usage and priority. Higher educational clients consume significant energy resources to operate and the demand on energy resources increase as deferred maintenance increases. Some higher educational clients locations contain several thousand to several tens of thousands, which if not energy is not managed efficiently, effectively and sustainably can represent a significant waste of cash resources and have an unbalanced impact on the environment. In our increasingly environmentally-conscious society, students, parents and faculty alike are often at the forefront of a go-green movement. Satisfy them — your benefactors, alumni and community — by renewing old energy infrastructure, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing energy and operational costs.

FESCO® works with private colleges and universities to explore possible paid-for-through-guaranteed-savings projects using our unique Master Energy Services Contract (MESA) process. The MESA fundamentally establishes a NEW process that puts both the college/university and FESCO in an open book process whereby FESCO invests in the early identification and estimation of energy efficiency or renewable energy projects without any obligation of the college/university whatsoever. This approach enables colleges/universities the ability to affirm the scope, equipment, and pricing for each component of an energy project to determine if the work meets their criteria of cost savings, addressing deferred maintenance equipment, reduction of greenhouse gases or satisfies their needs for renewable/sustainable power supply. 

In most cases evaluates the potential for onsite power generation (thermal, electrical, storage) to ensure customers have the power to enjoy their dorms and buildings through assets that FESCO would own, which are dedicated to the service of the Client. States where deregulation of Utility supply services exist these options could also provide a revenue stream for the college/university (depending on the ancillary, frequency and/or demand response market in your State).
