Lunch & Learn Webinar: Debunking Energy Performance Contracts Myths: It's Not Just Smoke and Mirrors

We discuss how EPCs help districts move capital projects forward in a cost-neutral way. During this unprecedented time when the district's budgets have been negatively impacted, EPC's provide a path forward to upgrade systems, and it's not just smoke and mirrors. We briefly discuss the concept of an EPC along with the five myths and persistent areas of misinformation that surround EPCs resulting in districts overlooking them as a potentially LARGE funding mechanism. Learn their benefits, how to be guided most effectively, the foundation to ensure you receive your guaranteed savings, and the facts that will ensure your project succeeds.

  • Do you have any EPC questions you want answered?
  • Think it's too good to be true? It isn't just smoke & mirrors.
  • Discover the persistent areas of common EPC misinformation.
  • Learn the unique skill set and experience required to be successful in taking advantage of an EPC's benefits and avoiding pitfalls

Presenters: Kendra McQuilton, Chief Executive Officer, The ECG Group, a passionate advocate for helping school districts ensure their energy performance contracts are transparent and the desired results are achieved. Kendra started with ECG in 2001 as director of business development. During that time, she identified Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) potential at over 100 school districts, resulting in projects totaling close to $1 billion. The implementation of these EPCs has saved, and continues to save each day, thousands of dollars in energy costs.  Since taking ownership of ECG in 2016, Kendra continues to work strategically with school facilities to help them solve multiple problems in a taxpayer-friendly way through the EPC concept. She is a strong advocate for minority- and women-owned businesses and works to ensure that each project ECG manages includes an enriching student engagement program. Kendra holds an MBA from Dowling College and a BA in English and Marketing from Hofstra University.
