Ameresco NCC Energy Efficiency Projects Home

New Castle County, DE is committed to creating a carbon neutral community by fostering economic development, creating green job opportunities for all citizens, and enhancing environmental protections. 

To meet their goals, the County is leveraging $3,746,200 of federal stimulus funds with $4,000,000 of its own capital dollars to implement this $7,746,200 efficiency and renewable energy project to upgrade county-owned facilities. Ameresco performed audits of these county-owned facilities to assess the current energy performance of these facilities, and to identify opportunities to renew facility infrastructure and reduce energy demand and costs. From these audits, a number of conservation measures and two solar installations were identified. The total project will impact 20 facilities and 461,643 sq. ft. of building space. New Castle County (NCC) has contracted Ameresco to implement the identified energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to the County's facilities. 

The Project Team Portal is used to ensure proposal requests (RFPs) and related information are disseminated widely across the region with attention to local small businesses inclusive of minority- and women-owned businesses.
