Update on Georgia Energy Savings Performance Contracting

 A bill before the Georgia General Assembly would revise the rules for contractors that are pre-qualified to perform energy savings performance contracts for state agencies and governmental entities.  The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) is tasked with the responsibility of establishing a list of pre-qualified contractors which state agencies must use for long-term guaranteed energy savings performance contracts (GESPCs).  The bill would amend the GESPC Act to expressly allow GEFA to add contractors to the list at any time during the 3-year pre-qualification term.

Finally, GEFA has issued the 2012 Georgia Energy Report, which can be viewed here or here.  Among other things, the report discusses Georgia’s current and anticipated sources of energy and prospects for energy efficiency and conservation.
