Designing, Managing, and Implementing State Guaranteed Energy Savings Performance Contracting Programs

A large component of Trident’s consulting and technical services is working with state governments to develop and implement successful state-administered Guaranteed Energy Savings Performance Contracting (GESPC) programs (also referred to as Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC)). Our consulting services include supporting state GESPC legislation; developing state-wide GESPC goals; developing a state-specific GESPC process and all related GESPC documents; and supporting the state in “rolling out” and sustaining the program. Additionally, Trident actively participates in states’ evaluation and qualification process for approving energy service companies (ESCOs) to work under the states’ programs. To strengthen the success of state’s GESPC programs, Trident develops and maintains positive and mutually beneficial relationships with the state’s ESCO community.
