Utility Energy Services Contracts (UESCs)

Utility Energy Services Contract (UESC) offers a streamlined pathway for federal agencies to contract with energy utilities for comprehensive energy efficiency, conservation, and demand-reduction services.

Why use UESCs?

Federal entities, under 42 U.S.C.§ 8256, and D.o.D. entities, under 10 U.S.C. § 2913, are encouraged to contract with utilities to meet energy efficiency goals. UESCs create many potential benefits for federal and DoD agencies:

  • Work with trusted energy partner
  • Meet energy and greenhouse gas mandates
  • Improve water efficiency
  • Reduce energy infrastructure costs
  • Obtain low-cost financing
  • Increase savings compared to ESPC

In the past decade, federal agencies have saved $420 million with approximately 2,000 UESC projects representing a total investment of $3 billion.
