Dimock Center

Reducing Energy Expenses While Improving Employee and Patient Comfort

ESPC generates $150,000 annually while meeting heating needs

As a vital, non-profit, community organization, The Dimock Center is tasked with providing critical health and human services to thousands of Boston residents each year.

Following a campus-wide energy audit, Veolia identified the existing central steam plant as a strategic energy and cost saving opportunity. As a National Grid Technical Assistance (TA) partner, Veolia successfully secured 60% of the cost from the utility to finance a detailed study of the plant.

The projected energy savings and efficiencies identified in Veolia’s study persuaded Dimock to replace the central plant. In order to secure capital and advance the project, The Dimock Center chose to pursue an ESPC contract model, where the savings generated are used to fund the capital improvements.
