Johnson Controls offers building Energy Performance Contracts that put facility upgrades within financial reach. It’s totally accountable: a guarantee that building improvements will deliver operational and utility savings over a fixed period. And it’s low-risk, because Johnson Controls pays the difference if the savings don’t accrue.
Facility and infrastructure retrofit costs are offset by utility and operational savings, helping businesses and organizations fund capital improvements, maintain cash flow and reduce emissions. Johnson Controls helped establish energy performance contracting in 1983 and has implemented more than 3,000 performance contracts in North America alone.
Facility audits identify opportunities to improve the efficiency of building envelope, lighting, HVAC, water and other systems. Performance contract specifies the scope of improvements, associated costs, estimated energy and other savings, grants available for project funding and resulting cost savings. Performance assurance staff validates savings and provides effective communications.
