Energy Performance Contracting Manual: State of Florida
The goal of energy performance contracting (EPC) is to reduce energy consumption and costs through the acquisition of comprehensive capital energy improvements. A performance contracting agreement is a practical and economical way for public sector entities to obtain and finance needed capital energy projects for their facilities. These agreements provide an opportunity for agencies to free up scarce budget resources for other needed services and activities.
Florida's "Energy Performance Contracting Manual" explains in detail the benefits as well as pitfalls of energy performance contracting, in which situations EPC is well suited, how to structure an EPC contract, and what rules have been established to guide EPC in each jurisdiction.
