Join AAEA and the Arkansas Energy Office for AEPC Summit 2018, presented by Entegrity.

Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting is a key cost-savings tool for state agencies, colleges and universities, and cities, counties and municipal utilities. AEPC has seen an explosion in interest since its start in late 2014, with 13 executed projects guaranteeing over $120 million in savings.

AEPC Summit 2018 will bring together state agency and higher education officials, city and county representatives, facilities managers, and energy service companies and contractors. K-12 school officials also are encouraged to attend.

Registration is open and tickets can be purchased here. If you are a potential AEPC customer or confirmed sponsor/exhibitor, you do not need to purchase a ticket. However, you must reserve your spot by registering here 
For more information on the event, please contact or (501) 537-0190.

About AEPC: 
Energy performance contracting is a turnkey service, comparable to design/build construction contracting with an annual savings guarantee. This method of finance provides taxpayer-funded public entities with the opportunity to complete a comprehensive set of energy efficiency, capital infrastructure and renewable energy measures at no upfront cost. AEPC projects are required to have a positive return on investment, with savings exceeding the contract amount in all instances.
