Energy Services JV Selected as One of Foour Vendors to Provide VA Medical Centers Across the Country with Needed Energy and Infrastructure Upgrades
Valhalla, NY – August 5, 2020
Con Edison Solutions, a leading energy services company and one of the Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses, has been selected together with its Joint Venture partner TL Services, Inc. by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as one of only four companies eligible to compete for Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) under the VA’s new nation-wide contract.
ESPCs allow VA Medical Centers across the country to upgrade energy systems and facility infrastructure, achieving energy savings and facility improvements with no required up-front capital costs by the client. Instead, the project is paid for with the energy savings through the life of the contract. ESPCs can be an attractive option for VA Medical Centers looking to reduce energy costs and upgrade their facility infrastructure.
Con Edison Solutions has been working with the VA for nearly two decades, helping to design and implement energy efficiency solutions that have improved both the performance of the VA’s facilities and the quality of care they provide. To best meet the VA’s evolving needs, Con Edison Solutions formed a joint venture with TL Services, Inc. (TLS) in 2017. TL Services is a Verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) with a 27-year track record of delivering projects and service contracts at over 40 VA Medical Centers. This JV enables both Con Edison Solutions and TL Services to jointly bid on and execute ESPCs under this new IDIQ in support of the VA’s ongoing mission to provide world class medical care and support to our nation’s veterans.
“We are honored and excited to be able to provide these services to the VA and our nation’s heroes under this unique and powerful contract vehicle,” said Peter Keating of Con Edison Solutions. “This contract and the VAs ESPC program will help the VA improve the readiness of their nationwide medical centers and clinics, which in turn will improve the medical care and services for millions of our nation’s veterans.”
“As a company that is owned and managed by veterans of multiple generations, TLS understands the sacrifices that have been made by veterans all over the country. We, as a team with Con Edison Solutions, want to give back and support the individuals who have been committed to protecting our freedoms throughout the years. Our veterans have sacrificed enough and going to a VA medical center for treatment should not be another sacrifice they have to make. It is our duty to support the VAMCs by providing our country’s warfighters with the most efficient facilities we can and to do so in a manner that saves money, energy, and VA resources. Ultimately this leads to modernization and more reliable infrastructure that allows the employees of the VA to focus on their number one mission: taking care of our nation’s heroes,” said Nicholas Looper, President of TLS.
