How Vicinity Can Help
Vicinity knows how important budget utilization is when working in government. Vicinity helps government agencies balance budgets through our energy solutions. The efficiency gains from outsourcing (i.e. utility systems operations, facilities management or procuring district energy) to third-party providers present opportunities to lower long-term energy and operating costs, while also freeing up budget resources. Additionally, it’s extremely important for government entities to leverage sustainable products and services to help reduce carbon impacts to our communities. That’s why we proactively invest in developing our district networks in our communities to enable better energy usage and reduce environmental impacts. With Vicinity, you get:
- Stellar reliability to support mission-critical work
- Reduced carbon footprint that supports government efforts to protect the health of our local ecosystems
- A team well versed in navigating the guidelines, regulations and restrictions to working with federal and municipal government agencies
- Budget conscious energy solutions that help reduce long-term costs
“Sustainability is one of the City’s core values. Vicinity’s purchase of carbon offsets supports our mutual goals to continue measurable progress toward reducing carbon emissions for both our city government operations and community in order to achieve the 2030 District’s target of net zero carbon by 2050.”

Energy Infrastructure Operations & Maintenance
In 2016, federal government buildings used 917 trillion BTUs of energy. That’s why it created its Better Buildings Initiative, aiming to make federal, residential and commercial buildings 20% more energy efficient by the year 2026. We’re working hand-in-hand with our federal customers to make this initiative a reality with turnkey energy efficiency programs, as well as performance-based operations and maintenance contracts.
We offer 24/7 monitoring for facilities that may not require a full-time operator on site. This helps to reduce expenses and allows for strategic use of community tax dollars.
