TAC Presents $525,000 Incentive Payment To Dallas

September 1, 2005
DALLAS - Tour Andover Controls (TAC) presented the city of Dallas with an incentive payment of more than $525,000, rewarding the city for reducing electricity demand. The energy reduction is the result of a $9 million performance contract TAC completed for the city that included the design and construction of energy conservation-related projects at six city facilities. The cost of the projects will be repaid with the realized energy savings, which TAC guarantees to exceed $1.2 million annually.

The city earned the incentive payment through participation in TXU Electric Delivery's Commercial and Industrial Retrofit Program. Facilities that received energy-related improvements include Dallas City Hall, the Central Public Library, a city-owned parking garage, a community recreation center, a branch library, and a satellite municipal center.

"The check TAC presented to the city of Dallas is in recognition of achieving the energy goals established in the performance contact," said Wes McDaniel, vice president of the Energy Solutions Division of TAC.

"This contract has enabled the city of Dallas to maximize energy efficiency as well as to implement needed infrastructure replacements and upgrades that had been deferred or delayed due to budgetary constraints, even though the improvements were necessary and appropriate."

"I am so thankful to the team from TAC for their vision to implement these energy-efficient measures at six city buildings," said Dallas Mayor Laura Miller. "Their efforts represent more than a half million dollars in direct savings in utility costs to the city of Dallas and our citizens."
