Innovative Utility Vendor Contracting DCAMM is signing direct contracts with utility vendors with the authority of the MA Green Communities Acts. These contracts will use pricing already negotiated by utility companies. In December 2012, RISE Engineering (a division of Thielsch Engineering, Inc.) became the first vendor to execute the new DCAMM Utility Vendor contract. In Q1 2013, DCAMM will be reaching out to ALL utility vendors to offer participation in program. Deputy Commissioner Sandra Duran congratulates Thielschs Vice-President Vin Graziano on becoming a DCAMM approved Utility vendor

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT Hogan Regional Center & Wrentham Developmental Center Energy and Water Retrofit Construction Began: October 2011 Substantial Completion: February 2013 DCAMM, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), J.C.Cannistraro and KlingStubbins have recently completed large-scale energy upgrades at the two facilities. Measures included power plant decentralization, solar PV installation, lighting upgrades, and HVAC improvements. The upgrades are on track to save nearly $2.5 million in energy costs annually. The 500kW solar PV installation at Wrentham will save over 6 million kWh of electricity annually.
Creating A Cleaner Energy Future For the Commonwealth Discussion Break-Out 36 1.Specify a sustainability project you have been able to implement using your own internal resources and some of the key benefits to your facility 2.Discuss the top 2-3 key reasons you were able to successfully implement this project 3.Identify ways in which DCAMM, LBE or other state agencies could be helpful in ensuring that these types of projects can be implemented on a wider scale
Creating A Cleaner Energy Future For the Commonwealth Thank you and please join DCAMM and Cannistraro for a tour of Wrenthams upgraded power plant and 500 KW ground-mounted solar PV installation. 37
