FREDERICK, MD, USA, June 8, 2023
FESCO a leading integrator of cleantech solutions for sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy has been awarded a $11.9 million Design-Build Solar PV Energy System project as part of a campus wide Utility Energy Services Contract (UESC) to provide engineering, design, and construction services for a prominent US Federal Research Agency.
The project will deliver 2.35MW DC of behind the meter solar generation comprised of three Solar PV Parking Garage solutions producing 3,288,700 kWh of carbon free electricity (CFE) annually powering the installation’s mission critical research activities, while supporting the Agency’s efforts to meet Federal renewable and sustainability goals. The 3rd party financed solution significantly reduces the campus GHG emission through leverages cost savings generated by the Solar PV assets to pay for the project’s capital costs.
