Description: In Part Two of our Three-Part Educational Webinar Series, Debunking Energy Performance Contract Myths: It’s Not Just Smoke and Mirrors, we discussed how EPCs help districts move capital projects forward in a cost-neutral way. During this unprecedented time when district’s budgets have been negatively impacted, EPCs provide a path forward to upgrade systems, and it’s not just smoke and mirrors. We briefly discussed the concept of an EPC (for more information, see Part One – Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) 101) along with the five myths and persistent areas of misinformation that surround EPCs resulting in districts overlooking them as a potentially LARGE funding mechanism. Learn their benefits, how to be guided most effectively, the foundation to ensure you receive your guaranteed savings, and the facts that will ensure your project succeeds.
