EnerNOC signs energy efficiency contract with San Francisco utilities commission

EnerNOC will work closely with building construction stakeholders to ensure that the city of San Francisco's new buildings operate efficiently and to the owners' specifications

Boston, May 10, 2012 — EnerNOC has been selected as the commissioning authority in a seven-year contract with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Through this master services agreement, which lasts through March 1, 2018, EnerNOC will work closely with building construction stakeholders to ensure that the city of San Francisco's new buildings operate efficiently and to the owners' specifications.

The first project under this agreement is San Francisco's new Public Safety Building, a 300,000-square-foot LEED Gold facility set to open in 2014. This contract also includes potential task orders for additional projects to which EnerNOC will contribute its energy efficiency services in the coming years.

EnerNOC has already served as the commissioning authority on a variety of buildings for the city of San Francisco, including the San Francisco International Airport, the renovation of the Moscone Center, and the SFPUC's own headquarters building, a LEED Platinum facility. This agreement builds on the success of those initiatives, as SFPUC continues its commitment to the sustainable and economically sound development of its facilities.

Located in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco, the new Public Safety Building will house the San Francisco Police Department Headquarters, as well as both a police and fire station. Construction on this $168 million facility began in early 2012, during which time EnerNOC has been working with the SFPUC and Department of Public Works to provide a full range of LEED commissioning services for the project.

As commissioning authority for the SFPUC, EnerNOC will provide documented confirmation that building systems function according to criteria set forth in the project documents to satisfy the owner's operational needs for newly constructed facilities. This typically includes HVAC, building controls, water systems, lighting controls, and renewable energy sources.

Depending on client needs, EnerNOC's work may also extend to building envelopes, wastewater, security, electrical distribution, emergency generators, A/V, and telecom systems. EnerNOC works closely with building owners, engineers, general contractors, architects and all subcontractors to achieve optimum building performance and efficiency from the outset.
