  5. 5. The Virgin Islands Energy Alliance in Brief• Program designed by the Virgin Islands Energy Office to reduce the energy consumption for all of WAPA’s rate classes customers including Government, Large Commercial & Industrial, Small Businesses & Industries, and Residential. 5
  6. 6. Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC)• ESPC is a contract for the identification, evaluation, recommendation, design and construction of energy conservation measures, including a design-build contract, that guarantees energy savings or performance.• The investment is recouped by the energy savings in time. Now Future Avoided Energy Savings Consumption Annual Lower Energy Energy Costs Costs 6
