Utility Energy Services Contracts

DTE Energy’s Utility Energy Services Contracting (UESC) program is an opportunity to effectively help federal agencies under 42 U.S.C.§ 8256 (f) save money on utilities by implementing energy efficiency initiatives that help to meet their goals as mandated by the Energy Policy Act of 1992.

A UESC contract is a process where a selected local electric, gas or water utility company assesses the energy savings opportunities, fronts the capital costs, and designs and installs the equipment in the project. When project financing is required, payments are made from the resulting savings. Project development and implementation costs can be fully or partially financed or be completely paid for upon project acceptance.
