The Mineola Union Free School District has appointed Ecosystem as the energy services provider to proceed with a comprehensive energy audit (CEA) at the district’s five schools. In July 2015, the district issued a public request for proposals (RFP) for a Phase 3 district-wide energy project. The chosen Energy Performance Contractor is to provide design and implementation services for the schools and to guarantee the recovery of contract costs from energy savings over a maximum term of 18 years.
Ecosystem submitted a response to the RFP that met or surpassed all requirements. As a result, in January 2016, the Board of Education at the district appointed Ecosystem as the energy services provider to proceed with a comprehensive energy audit. The purpose of the audit is to identify the energy conservation measures to be installed under an energy performance contract.
“Sometimes you need a fresh set of eyes on an existing problem. Looking at things differently usually yields better results; that is why we chose Ecosystem.” Explained Dr. Nagler, Superintendent of the Mineola Union Free School District.
“Ecosystem is honored to have been chosen by the district for this audit, especially when Phase 1 was completed by a different company,” explained Ahmed Ibrahim, Ecosystem’s business development manager. “Our in-depth approach and integrated-design capabilities perfectly reflect the values recognized by Dr. Nagler.”
The audit is underway and once the final scope is approved by the administration, the project will proceed under an energy performance contract.
