Ameresco Quantum Partners With Washington K-12 School Districts To Obtain Grants For Energy Saving Improvements

Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company throughout North America, today announced its business unit Ameresco Quantum, Inc. has partnered with 17 of its Washington State K-12 school customers to help them obtain energy and operational savings grants from Washington State’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). On April 2, 2012, OSPI announced 43 grants totaling $20.9 million.

Ameresco Quantum’s K-12 customers that are recipients include : Centralia School District, College Place School District, East Valley School District (Yakima), Elma School District, Griffin School District, Kelso School District, La Center School District, Lake Quinault School District, Liberty School District, Mercer Island School District, Napavine School District, Okanogan School District, Oroville School District, Shelton School District, South Whidbey School District, Wahkiakum School District and Woodland School District.

Since 2009, OSPI and the Washington Department of Commerce have distributed $137 million in energy and operational savings grants for K-12 schools and higher education. The state funding supports energy and operational efficiency projects that create jobs and reduce costs. To date, over 50 percent of the grants have been awarded to Ameresco Quantum customers.

“This latest round of state energy grants will make a significant difference in our customers’ schools,” said Mike O’Connor, Vice President, Northwest Region for Ameresco Quantum. “These grants enable school districts to implement much needed infrastructure improvements that would otherwise be out of reach in the current school funding environment. The projects are completely paid for with the grant, utility incentives, and guaranteed energy savings, and they will make a real difference in the lives of the students and staff.”

“Using their extensive experience working with schools, Ameresco Quantum was a tremendous asset to the South Whidbey School District; identifying infrastructure improvements that reduce energy consumption and offer guaranteed savings; assisting with the OSPI grant application process; and soon implementing the conservation measures,” said Josephine (Jo) Moccia, Superintendent. “Our students, teachers and the community at large are the ultimate beneficiaries of this project. With the grants and guaranteed savings, we can upgrade our learning environment while reducing energy and operational costs.”
