ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Bernalillo County’s Metropolitan Detention Center is getting $13.9 million in energy upgrades, and the county says money saved on utility bills as a result of the improvements will be enough to cover most of the cost.
Commissioners voted unanimously this month to enter a so-called guaranteed energy performance contract with Yearout Energy Service Co., a New Mexico firm also known as YESCO. Under the contract, YESCO is guaranteeing that the savings produced by the project will be sufficient to cover the cost.
