Gulf Power Company to Host Free Utility Workshop in Florida

February 1, 2002

On April 30-May 1, 2002, the Gulf Power Company will host a workshop in Pensacola, Florida, for Federal customers on utility energy services contracting. Sponsored by FEMP, GSA, and Gulf Power, this workshop will provide attendees with an overview of the contracting options and services available from their local utility companies to engineer, finance, and install cost effective energy and water savings projects. Participants will learn about the typical project process, from the audit phase to commissioning the equipment. Upon completing this workshop, participants will have the contracting and technical knowledge to begin a project at their facility. This innovative alternative financing opportunity provides a mechanism to help solve facility problems and meet program objectives and goals. Priority will be given to Federal personnel; however, State and local government customers are welcome.

The registration fee is waived for this workshop. Space is limited, so register by calling FEMP's Workshop Hotline at 703-243-8343 by April 15, 2002.
