The City of Dallas awarded a $9 million performance contract to TAC (Carrollton, Texas) to design and construct energy conservation-related projects at six facilities. The projects will be financed through loans from the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO).

The TAC performance contract will allow the city to comply with recent legislation mandating energy conservation, the reduction of operating costs, and upgrades to mechanical systems. Improvements will include lighting retrofits, new chillers for Dallas City Hall and a branch library, a new boiler at the community center, and replacements or upgrades to the cooling towers at the Central Library, City Hall, the community center, and the satellite municipal center. In addition, TAC Vista® building automation systems will be used at all the facilities to monitor and control the mechanical systems and energy consumption.
