On October 13, Green Generation Solutions, LLC announced an energy savings performance contract to make energy efficiency upgrades at 13 U.S. GSA buildings in Michigan.  

According to the company, the upgrades will generate more than $3.9 million in savings to taxpayers.

The firm values the contract at more than $1 million.

Brad Dockser, CEO, GreenGen noted:

“By retrofitting federal facilities, GreenGen is helping reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases, which supports President Obama’s vision for protecting the environment. We are excited to partner with GSA in Michigan to deliver significant energy and cost savings.”

The scope of the project includes the design and installation of high-efficiency LED lighting upgrades to the interior and exterior lighting systems, as well as upgrades to HVAC systems and controls to reduce energy consumption. The energy conservation measures in this project are expected to reduce electricity consumption by approximately 68 percent for those upgraded measures.

The project will be paid for using cost savings generated by the project. Savings in electricity and gas consumption over the next six years will be applied as payments to finance the ESPC project, meaning there is no direct cost to the government, and additional cost savings will be achieved every year beyond 2021.

Colonel (Ret.) Rick Gonder, GreenGen’s Director of Government Contracting observed: “The efficiencies we are bringing to the GSA facilities in Michigan through the ESPC program will benefit not only taxpayers but also the environment.”

In fact, the ESPC will guarantee first year savings of more than $151,000 and provide for more than $3.9 million in energy savings over the next 20 years.
