Reclaim Your Dollars for Students and Classrooms with Energy-Saving Solutions

Study after study shows that school building deficiencies reduce the probability that students and teachers can achieve their full potential.

Outdated infrastructure, inadequate lighting, poor ventilation, and a lack of safety measures not only detract from learning objectives, they also drive up energy and maintenance costs. With limited funding for school building improvements, it’s getting harder for K-12 schools to make the grade.

We are your Easy Button for making necessary upgrades. 


Since 1994, ESG has helped school administrators overcome the challenges of limited budgets to transform outdated school buildings into secure, energy-efficient powerhouses for learning and engagement. Working in tandem with your team, we help you do more with less to boost student achievement, staff satisfaction, and community goodwill.

Achieve More with Smart Capital Improvement Funding for School Districts

Funding for school district improvements can be piecemeal, difficult to find, and challenging to navigate. We help you put the pieces together using energy savings performance contracts that enable you to pay for today’s facility upgrades with tomorrow’s energy and operational savings. You’ll have guidance for maximizing available funds through budget-neutral solutions. We can even assist with budget planning to support your short- and long-term budget financing goals.
