Performance Contracting

No Budget. No Problem.

Cox’s Creek Elementary School utilized a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract to fully fund a complete HVAC renovation that decreased the school’s energy use by over 50%.


Illuminating the Past and the Present

The Franklin County Courthouse earned a 2015 Illumination Award of Merit for the lighting work that accentuates the exterior features of the building including 16 limestone columns that surround the new plaza and frame the courthouse. The original building was constructed in 1835.


Energy savings are a way of life at Twenhofel Middle School.

Twenhofel Middle School was one of CMTA’s first schools to introduce a curriculum integrated energy dashboard. This Fall 2012 High Performing Buildings article details the school’s sustainable features.


Baby Steps to Zero Energy

When Plano Elementary School opened in 2007 it was one of the most energy efficient schools in the country. The school’s energy use was so low that the local utility changed the meters out twice believing they were malfunctioning. This Fall 2009 High Performing Buildings article shows how Plano achieved this low energy use.


CMTA "Walks the Walk"

CMTA's headquarters was built with two goals in mind: significantly reduce energy use and create a learning lab environment to test new technologies for high performance buildings. The building was the first LEED Gold office building in Louisville and received a perfect ENERGY STAR rating of 100.

The First Zero Energy School

Constructed in 2010, the Warren County Public Schools facility, located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is the first of its kind to produce more energy than it consumes.
