The U.S. Department of Energy defines energy performance contracting as “a budget-neutral approach to make building improvements that reduce energy and water use and increase operational efficiency.” By partnering with an energy services company, a building owner pays for today’s facility upgrades with tomorrow’s energy savings – and without tapping into capital budgets.
The Newburgh EPC project team consists of Johnson Controls, the energy services company selected through a competitive Request for Proposals to build the project and guarantee the energy savings and Mr. Roger Ramjug, Director of Management Efficiency/ Capital Projects Administrator for the district. Overseeing the project in collaboration with Mr. Ramjug is The ECG Group, a company that specializes in the technical review and overall management of EPC projects throughout New York State.
Any additional information such as FAQs, important updates, and other general information will be posted here when it becomes available. For any additional questions you can reach out to Roger Ramjug at firstname.lastname@example.orgLATEST UPDATES
