Ameresco Completes Comprehensive Energy Efficiency Project With Central Michigan’s Montcalm Community College

Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE: AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, announced today the completion of energy efficiency upgrades to Montcalm Community College (MCC), located in Sidney Township, Michigan. As part of the $1.2 million Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), Ameresco implemented various infrastructure upgrades and energy saving measures across the College’s two campuses. The new equipment and energy management system installed will allow the College to save an estimated $129,000 annually over the ten-year contract without the burden of up-front capital investment.

Located in central Michigan between Grand Rapids and Lansing, MCC sought to implement a campus-wide “face lift” in order to enhance its infrastructure and educational environment simultaneously. As part of the partnership, Ameresco installed lighting and HVAC upgrades, an energy management system to increase control over energy consuming systems, as well as vending machine controls and building envelope enhancements to save on annual energy costs.

“Montcalm Community College selected Ameresco as its partner given its extensive track record of working with institutions of higher education,” said MCC President Bob Ferrentino. “The work that has been done provided building enhancements which have improved the learning environment and comfort for our students while reducing our energy costs.”

Along with energy efficiency enhancements, Ameresco also provided energy efficiency training to staff to help MCC develop campus-wide energy standards. Ameresco collaborated with MCC staff to identify areas of focus and improve the resources available to further the level of training and resulting awareness of energy efficient behaviors by students and faculty.

“Montcalm Community College has shown real leadership by implementing energy efficient measures campus-wide, and we are proud to partner with them to reach their sustainability goals,” said Louis P. Maltezos, executive vice president of Ameresco. “We have a history of working with academic institutions in Michigan and across North America, and we have found that implementing energy saving measures through a budget-neutral ESPC model enable institutions such as MCC to reinvest back into programs that will have a direct benefit to students, faculty and the broader community.”
