Corrections Facilities

Restore Your Bottom Line with

Energy-Efficiency and Security Upgrades

ESG can help you convert those infrastructure liabilities into security and energy improvements that pay for themselves.

We bring decades of experience helping state and local corrections agencies modernize their infrastructure, reduce their operating costs, and invest in the future through energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) and other strategies for reducing or eliminating out-of-pocket expenditures.

Correctional facility administrators are tasked with a tall order: run a 24/7, 365-day operation; protect the safety and security of staff and inmates; and meet an ever-expanding list of mandates—all with limited resources.

It’s understandable why facility upgrades get pushed to the back burner. 


But that growing list of deferred maintenance is increasing both your risk and operational costs.
