Project Description
The Town and School District of Cheshire, CT desired the benefits of an Energy Performance  Savings Contract, but wanted to ensure their interests were protected throughout the process. After receiving  proposals from multiple energy  consultants to oversee their EPSC, the Town/School District ultimately selected ECG because of our depth of experience in the specific area of EPSC and professional engineering license/qualifications.

The Town/School District is currently constructing a self-funding ESPC that is making over $10 million worth of energy efficient upgrades possible.  One of the highlights of the project is a district-wide lighting upgrade to dimmable LED.  The project is also providing a complete conversion from electric heat to hydronic heating with high efficiency condensing natural gas boilers for the Highland ES and portions of the High School.  Additionally, a cost saving oil-to-gas conversion and 18 other measures were implemented that will produce over $600,000/year in guaranteed energy savings.  All work was developed and installed at no out-of-pocket cost to the Town.
