Borrego Solar Systems Inc., a designer, installer and financier of grid-tied solar photovoltaic systems, says it has been certified by the Department of Energy's (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program as a pre-qualified Energy Service Company.

This certificate allows the company to conduct energy-savings performance contracting (ESPC) directly with all federal agencies.

Legislated mandates and increasing energy costs have many federal agencies looking to deploy solar energy, but the upfront purchasing costs are often prohibitive, Borrego says. This trend has driven increased demand for Borrego Solar's power purchase agreement (PPA). Through its certification, Borrego Solar will be able to deal directly with and offer a PPA to all federal agencies.
