Washington Gov. Inslee Joins Bates Technical College And Ameresco To Announce Next Round Of Energy Efficiency Grants

Ameresco Inc. (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, joined with officials from Bates Technical College to host Gov. Jay Inslee and local leaders on Wednesday, March 13, to announce the award recipients for the second round of 2012 energy efficiency grants from the Washington State Department of Commerce. Ameresco customers awarded grants include: Olympic College, Pierce Colleges, Green River Community College, City of Olympia, City of Renton, City of Edmonds, City of Kirkland, City of Lacey, Spokane County, Island County, Grays Harbor County, Okanagan County, Kittitas County, and the Port of Longview.

Bates Technical College, a previous state grant recipient, partnered with Ameresco to complete a multi-phase $5 million energy efficiency upgrade project for the College. The $2.1 million in State energy efficiency grants Bates received was part of the 2010 Jobs Act, which like those announced today, supported energy and operational efficiency projects that create jobs and reduce costs.

The energy project at Bates focused on updating building systems at the College’s Downtown Campus, South Campus and Mohler Campus facilities. The improvements have increased energy efficiency and upgraded important facility systems, which in turn have helped Bates Technical College to save energy, reduce costs and lower the college’s carbon footprint.

“The energy efficiency improvements completed by Bates Technical College and Ameresco demonstrate the tremendous progress being made with these state grants towards a more sustainable future for Washington State,” said Ron Langrell, President of Bates Technical College. “The approach used here serves as a powerful example to other educational institutions and organizations as it demonstrates how large-scale energy efficiency projects can both drive sustainability and economic development.”

In addition to Gov. Inslee, the event hosted at the South Campus featured Bates Technical College President Ron Langrell, Bates Trustee and Labor Representative Mike Grunwald, Department of Commerce Director Brian Bonlender, Tacoma Power Superintendent Ted Coates, Fritz Feiten of Ameresco, Noah Reandeau representing the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council, and student representatives.
