Danforth Energy Performance Contracting
Danforth often engages with clients by means of an Energy Performance Contract. Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) are an alternative financing mechanism designed to accelerate investment in cost-effective energy conservation measures in existing buildings. EPCs allow building owners to accomplish energy savings projects with little or no initial capital costs. An EPC is a partnership between a building owner and an Energy Service Company (ESCO). The ESCO conducts a comprehensive energy audit for the facility and identifies improvements to save energy. In consultation with the client, the ESCO designs and implements facilities improvements that meet the client’s needs, and arranges the necessary financing. The ESCO guarantees that the improvements will generate energy cost savings sufficient to pay for the project over the term of the contract. After the contract ends, all additional cost savings accrue to the agency.
Danforth is a full service Energy Service Company (ESCO) providing a range of services that include Facility Benchmarking, Feasibility Studies, Design-Build Projects and Energy Performance Contracts.

Monroe County Civic Center Energy Performance Contract, Rochester, NY
Monroe County Civic Center
Danforth was awarded the mechanical contract for renovations to be done on the Monroe County Civic Center, located in downtown Rochester, NY. The main focus of the project was to upgrade the facility’s controls systems.
Operating out of our Victor, NY office, Danforth was to upgrade the controls systems throughout the parking garage as well as the adjoining structures. The team upgraded the current carbon dioxide detectors. Additionally, Danforth removed the current hot water and cold water control valves and replaced them with new ones. The scope of work also included upgrading the meter, controls panels and control dampers starting in the parking garage and branching out through the Civic Center.
