Ameresco has received an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) from Warren Woods Public Schools in Warren, Michigan, to improve the district's facilities by promoting sustainability, energy efficiency, and financial resilience.
Ameresco will implement cutting-edge technologies and services to improve the overall energy infrastructure of Warren Woods Public Schools as part of the EPSC, which leverages Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) funds to include innovative renewable energy technologies such as solar and geothermal.
The advanced technologies and services included are LED lighting, HVAC retrofits, geothermal systems, roofing, water efficiency, and solar integration.
The lifetime savings of the sustainability measures are expected to reach $8.7 million over the next 25 years.
Construction on the large-scale efficiency work is projected to start in 2024 and will be completed by 2025.
“The proactive and innovative approach adopted by our school district ensures the continued financial health of the district and also aligns with our commitment to environmental sustainability,” said Stacey Denewith-Fici, Superintendent of Warren Woods Public Schools. “By embracing creative financial and technological solutions, our district is set to make substantial strides in reducing our carbon footprint.”
