The PPESCO Process

General Contracting

General Contractors are responsible for the installation of energy improvements and oversee the physical work of building project. In some cases PPESCO manages the GC; in others, it oversees only the energy-specific work.

The GC locates subcontractors to take care of the structural, mechanical, electrical, lighting, water, controls, and renewable energy services for the project. The GC oversees, manages, and coordinates all installation work for new systems and services. In order to have the confidence with which to be able to back the performance with an energy savings guarantee, the PPESCO requires that it have final decision-making authority on the energy-related features of the project, and that it sign off on energy-related work.
