ESPC
 Partnership between Federal agency and
energy service company (ESCO).
 ESCO conducts energy audit on facility and
identifies energy conservation measures
(ECM’S).
 In consultation with the agency, ESCO designs
and constructs project to meet agency's needs.
 ESCO arranges financing for the project.
ESPC
 ESCO guarantees ECM’S will generate energy
cost savings sufficient to pay for project over
the term of the contract.
 Energy savings estimated, guaranteed @ 90%
 Agency pays ESCO annually from energy cost
savings.
 After contract ends, all energy cost savings go
to agency.
 Contract terms of up to 25 years allowed.
ESPC
 Energy Savings Performance
Contracts (ESPCs) allow
Federal agencies to accomplish
energy savings projects
without up-front capital costs
and without special
Congressional appropriations.
USFS R3 ESPC
 DOE contract w/ various ESCO’s
 2008 Honeywell was selected for R3 contract.
 February 2009 Honeywell “Energy Audit” estimate
for ECM’s ~$1,600,000
 First year savings estimate = $103,000
 First year savings GUARANTEE = $94,500
 Simple payback = 15.7 years
USFS R3 ESPC
 March 2009 – R3 makes “buy down” lump sum
payment = $1,050,000.
 Balance = $550,000 + interest (6.88%) = $650,000
over 8 year term.
 8 annual payments of ~$80,000. (“from annual
energy savings”)
USFS R3 ESPC
 By April 1, 2010 – Most ECM’s installed.
 First payment due on April 1, 2010.
HOWEVER
 After evaluating all proposed ECM’s at all sites for
feasibility………….
 Total cost of ECM’s ~$1,093,000
 80+ Buildings, 9 National Forests
 With contract modification, annual payments will
be ~ $0, agency will incur energy savings.
USFS R3 ESPC
 FY11 payment = Principle + Interest + Monitoring
and Verification ~$60,000
 FY 12 payment = Interest + Monitoring
&Verification (M&V) ~ $30,000
 FY 13 – FY 18 = M&V ~ $3,000 / year
 Annual energy savings ~$65,000

USFS responsible for
deployment of the meters on
the buildings as they see fit.
The meters are capable of
monitoring 3 phase power and
storing the electric power
information for several
months.
The USFS will be able to
download and analyze power
data.

TRAINED FS PROJECT MANAGER
TRAINING FOR LOCAL CONTACTS
TYPE OF $ USED FOR PAYMENTS VS. TYPE OF $
SAVED?
 ONLY INCLUDE BUILDINGS LIKELY TO BE IN
SERVICE THROUGH CONTRACT PERIOD
 ESTIMATED ECM’S MAY NOT = ACTUAL
Training available:
 June 7, 2012
 Streamlining ESPCs for Small Sites (Web-based)
 Offered by FEMP, webinar fosters skill in using
ENABLE - a streamlined ESPC process that allows
smaller facilities to contract with ESCOs on energysaving projects. Includes eligibility criteria, the use of
standardized forms as well as self-assessments to
reduce application time, costs, reviews, and approvals.
 Time 01:30 PM to 03:00 PM (Eastern)
