Energy Services Company (ESCO)
An energy services company (abbreviated ‘ESCO’ or ‘ESCo’) is a full-service entity that offers a multitude of energy solutions including implementation of energy-saving projects, upgrading energy infrastructure, energy supply, power generation and energy performance management.
How ESCOs Work
In general, ESCOs design and implement energy efficiency projects and also offer a range of ancillary services such as analysis of energy savings pre-construction, energy performance measurement and verification (M&V) after implementation, as well as, any maintenance or commissioning of the energy equipment installed.
Choosing an ESCO
It is important to choose a qualified ESCO to manage your energy projects from start to finish. Some points to consider while choosing an ESCO include:
At Associated Renewable, we are not just an ESCO that offers project implementation and turns over operations after completion. We are a full-service energy management solutions company that ensures project performance throughout the entire life cycle of a customer’s energy needs. As an ESCO, we not only develop and install energy conservation measures, but also fund the entire retrofit project at no upfront costs to the owner; perform ongoing measurement and verification (M&V) to ensure savings occur as projected; perform annual audits to identify more savings opportunities; offer free annual energy benchmarking; and also handle the entire application process to obtain any applicable incentives for maximum cost reduction.
