Energy Performance Contracting
DGS works with State agencies to substantially reduce Maryland's government energy consumption. The Department of General Services's Energy Division manages 27 energy performance contracts that will save approximately $322.8 million throughout the life of the contracts, $24.8 million annually, and greenhouse gas reductions of 102,574 Tons of carbon dioxide annually.
At Spring Grove Hospital Center, energy conservation measures under an EPC completed in January 2010, have provided confirmed avoided utility costs of more than $5.5 million, nearly $1.4 million in excess of the guarantee over that period.
