Barriers


 Seems clear…
Sharing maintenance

Considerations

 Loan payments
 Employee turnover
 Energy manager
 Coordination with utilities
 Pole ownership (current issues)
 Storage
 Communication
 Street light maintenance group
 Growth policies
 Subdivision ordinance change
 Energy management software communication
Input from other cities

 Assigned two companies to ESPCs
 Competition
 Served as a check
 Cherry-picking projects?
 “Need someone to quarterback the team”
 “Conservation Specialist”
 “black hole of savings if in other departments”
 Use Portfolio Manager and sync it with their other
dashboard software
 Figure out what is the CFO’s favorite way of financing the
projects
 Take them the cash flow and tell them there are a variety of
ways to do it (not just ESPCs)
 Find out what they’re comfortable with so you can continue
Energy bills
