  5. 5. Combining Rooftop Solar with Energy Efficiency By combining energy conservation measures (ECMs) with rooftop solar, Clark Energy Group is able to: <ul><li>The result is increased project viability and substantial improvements to energy security . </li></ul>ESPC Task Order Energy Conservation Measures The Result… Energy Security On-Site Renewable Energy Generation <ul><li>Use energy savings from fast payback ECMs to help fund the rooftop solar systems. In areas with low electricity rates or poor incentives, this is often the only way rooftop solar is economically feasible. </li></ul><ul><li>Size on-site renewable systems (e.g., rooftop PV) to match the demand of the facility. By reducing the energy consumption, it is easier to match demand. </li></ul>Energy Efficiency & Rooftop Solar
