Ameresco Quantum Expands Partnership With Battle Ground School District To Reduce Energy Costs And Support Efficiency Goals

Stocks in this article: AMRC

Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, announced today that Ameresco Quantum, Inc. has begun work on a $3.9 million Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) for the Battle Ground School District in Clark County, Washington. The cost to the District of the project will be reduced by a $1 million Energy Savings Grant from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and an estimated $322,000 in rebates from the Clark County Public Utility District. This group of energy efficiency infrastructure upgrades follows two energy conservation projects completed by Ameresco Quantum for the District in 2010 and 2011 that focused on major plumbing and lighting upgrades.

Battle Ground schools that will receive upgrades through the new project include Battle Ground High School, Prairie High School, Amboy Middle School, Maple Grove Primary and Middle School, Captain Strong Elementary School, Yacolt Primary School, and the Center for Agriculture, Science, and Environmental Education Building Complex.

“This grant will result in dramatic savings in our utility bills, guard against system failures and enable us to address long-standing issues of failed and aging equipment,” said Mary Beth Lynn, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and School Operations of Battle Ground School District.

“The state energy efficiency grants and the guaranteed savings provided by our energy performance contracting model has allowed many school districts, as well as municipalities and colleges across the state, to dramatically reduce operational costs and achieve long desired energy efficiency goals,” said Mike O’Connor, Vice President, Northwest Region for Ameresco. “This project at the Battle Ground School District is a perfect example of how energy infrastructure improvements can yield positive financial impacts even in the current fiscal environment, while at the same time contributing to more sustainable communities.”

Over the course of the contract, Ameresco Quantum will manage the design and installation of new mechanical systems, as well as upgrades and replacements to the District’s energy management systems and other equipment. In addition to reducing utility costs, these improvements will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by decreasing carbon emissions by nearly 2 million pounds per year.
