The Placing UESC Task Orders under the GSA Areawide Contract Webinar provides attendees with an overview of the contracting options and services available from their local utility companies to engineer, finance, and install cost effective energy- and water-savings projects. Participants will be walked through the typical project process, from the audit phase to commissioning the equipment. Highlights include introducing participants to Utility Energy Service Contracts and helping them determine if a UESC is right for their site.
