ARLINGTON, Va. - Pepco Energy Services, a leader in energy savings performance contracting, has been awarded a competitive bid contract by the District of Columbia’s Department of Real Estate Services (DRES) to implement a $7.5 million energy efficiency retrofit project at the One Judiciary Square facility in Washington, D.C.

Comprised of 850,000 square feet, One Judiciary Square is one of the major buildings owned and operated by the government of the District of Columbia and hosts multiple D.C. agencies. Pepco Energy Services said that, despite the volume and complexity of the scope of internal work being provided, construction will be completed without disruption of the critical operations at the building.

Pepco Energy Services will install a building management system, direct digital controls, and HVAC upgrades. In addition to saving money and energy, the project will create the equivalent of 16 full-time construction jobs.

“The District will not only improve the energy efficiency of the building systems,” said DRES Director Robin-Eve Jasper, “but the District will also be improving the air quality and overall comfort of the building.”

This project is funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act capital and will assist the D.C. government in achieving its energy reduction and conservation goals. Construction began in August and will be completed within 18 months.

“Pepco Energy Services is extremely pleased to have been chosen to implement the One Judiciary Square retrofit project,” said John Huffman, president and chief executive officer of the company. “The One Judiciary Square retrofit project demonstrates the D.C. government’s commitment to increasing the district’s energy efficiency and we look forward to continuing a successful partnership with the city.”

Pepco Energy Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pepco Holdings Inc., provides commercial, institutional, government, and industrial customers with energy efficiency services, including renewable energy and combined heat and power. For more information, visit www.pepcoenergy.com.
