Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC)

Aging equipment and high utility costs?

Is your organization facing outdated equipment, increasing maintenance and energy costs, and limited budgets? Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is a tool for paying for efficiency upgrades such as lighting, chillers, boilers, water systems, and renewable generation over time. The Arkansas Energy Office offers assistance to state agencies, institutions of higher education, municipalities, counties, and school districts. The program provides an effective and user-friendly process with standardized documents and assistance from development to measurement and verification of guaranteed savings. The Arkansas EPC Program was directed by law in 2013 and has guaranteed over $400 million in energy savings for the public sector to date.

Energy Performance Contracting is a financing mechanism used to pay for energy efficiency improvements all at once that are then paid back through annual energy savings. The AEO provides technical assistance to state agencies and public institutions of higher learning, helping them navigate the process and ensuring that Pre-Qualified Energy Service Companies (see a list below) maintain the highest levels of quality. Furthermore, the AEO actively provides education and outreach on the components of Energy Performance Contracting, maintains contract documents, and sets industry standards for Energy Service Companies. For a detailed list of how the AEO-approved process works along with a checklist of important milestones and responsibilities, please look at the AEPC Program Manual below. Please contact Senior Policy Manager Kaytie Pray or 501-682-0914 with specific questions or concerns.

If you would like to explore the possibilities of performance contracting for your organization, contact the Arkansas Energy Office and/or any of the pre-qualified Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) below. The following ESCOs were certified to operate in Arkansas after a thorough vetting of finances, organizational structure, past experience, and technical capabilities. All ESCOs have a wide variety of specialities and expertise, so make sure to contact multiple ESCOs. Also, please note that all ESCOs in the AEPC program are reevaluated on an annual basis, to ensure high quality work and commitment to the state.
