Tarleton State University Enters Into ESPC For Energy Upgrades
Tarleton State University will soon be undergoing a series of energy projects that are expected to reduce its electricity use and natural gas consumption by 21-23% annually.
The Stephenville, Texas-based university is partnering with Ameresco on LED retrofits and replacements, controls and instrumentation improvements, and HVAC lifecycle replacements. The project will be entirely self-funded using the utility savings generated by the upgrades under the energy savings performance contract with Ameresco.
Construction on the projects began in June 2021 and is expected to be completed by June 2022.
“Our goal is to reduce our deferred maintenance backlog and improve campus operations in a budget-neutral manner. After a thorough review process, we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with an organization as committed to advancing the future of sustainability as Ameresco,” Tarleton CFO Lori Beaty said in a statement. “Our partnership with the team only furthers our energy and water conservation efforts, which have already seen tremendous success. We cannot wait to see how Ameresco’s innovative solutions will continue to transform our campus landscape.”
