Bringing Higher Efficiency to Higher Education Delivering campus upgrades and carbon reduction through Efficiency Service Agreements

Free live webinar: June 13, 2019, 2:00 p.m. EST

Reducing energy costs and carbon use is increasingly a top priority in higher education. But how can schools pay for equipment upgrades and large-scale energy efficiency projects without siphoning funding from other campus priorities? This webinar explores how Wells College utilized an Efficiency Services Agreement (ESA) with Metrus Energy to implement campus-wide energy efficiency upgrades—with no upfront cost.

What you’ll learn:

  • The nuts and bolts of an ESA
  • How an ESA allows Wells College to improve efficiency without impacting its balance sheet or borrowing capacity
  • The opportunity cost of delaying efficiency upgrades

Sponsored by Second Nature, an organization committed to accelerating climate action in – and through – higher education, the webinar will feature Robert Cree, VP and CFO at Wells College; Bob Hinkle, President and CEO of Metrus Energy; and Eric Howard, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Second Nature.

The webinar will focus on similar projects valued at $2 million to $10 million. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
