NORESCO, a national leader in energy efficiency and energy infrastructure solutions, is implementing nearly $22 million in infrastructure upgrades at the Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and at the El Paso VA Health Care System in El Paso, Texas, through a guaranteed energy savings performance contract (ESPC). The contract is being administered through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Program Contracting Activity Central (PCAC). NORESCO is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
"NORESCO is proud to continue our business relationship with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs with this ESPC project," says Michael Beccaria, senior vice president, NORESCO. "This project will help deliver energy efficiency and facility improvements including energy management control system enhancements, air handler upgrades, new boilers, chilled water system improvements and the installation of high-efficiency LED lighting technology. It also supports the VA's renewable energy objectives through the implementation of a 528 kW roof-mounted solar photovoltaic system."
This ESPC will help advance the VA's progress toward meeting energy reduction goals, improve veteran comfort, provide additional energy security, reduce heating energy costs by up to 70 percent, and meet or exceed the renewable energy goal at the El Paso VA Health Care System's site. More than $33.8 million in cost savings will be achieved by NORESCO over the course of the contract. The ESPC project will also eliminate the introduction of nearly 18.3 million pounds of emissions into the atmosphere annually, equivalent to removing more than 2,000 cars from the road.
