Under the ESPC, Ameresco will implement a variety of cutting-edge technologies and services to improve the overall energy infrastructure of Warren Woods Public Schools, which include one high school, one middle school, three elementary schools and one alternative high school. This ESPC leverages Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) funds to include innovative renewable energy technologies such as solar and geothermal.

“We take great pride in providing the necessary measures to enhance energy resilience for school districts and we are proud to be a part of the project with Warren Woods Public Schools to scale up environmental sustainability standards.”
