What is GESP?

• Guaranteed Energy Saving Project leverages energy and operational savings to finance building retrofits and renewal projects

• Written guarantee from contractor for savings to pay annual financing

• If savings not met, contractor will reimburse the shortfall

Challenges

Page 23: Bemidji Guaranteed Energy Savings Program

Challenges of GESP

• Initial project with City our size and for Honeywell

• Time delays to get to construction phase to follow GESP process

• Some glitches in project financing – required financing over 20 years vs. 15 years

• Not all projects were selected due to long payback periods

Page 24: Bemidji Guaranteed Energy Savings Program

Benefits• Streamlined process

for selection and implementation of program

• Competitive bidding among prequalified energy companies

• Minimized work load on City staff; no energy experts on staff

Page 25: Bemidji Guaranteed Energy Savings Program

• Accelerated timeline to implement projects

• Majority of projects paid for with energy savings over period of time

• All bidding and contracting is completed by Honeywell

Benefits
