McKinstry Earns NAESCO Accreditation

Certification demonstrates McKinstry’s excellence in the national energy and technical services market

SEATTLE (Nov. 15, 2018) — McKinstry earned official energy service company (ESCO) accreditation from the National Association of Energy Service Companies (NAESCO). McKinstry’s Brian Floyd—vice president and general manager for energy and technical services—also now serves on the NAESCO Board of Directors.

NAESCO is the leading national trade organization representing and promoting the energy efficiency industry in the energy marketplace, the media and the government both at the state and federal level. Companies seeking NAESCO-Accredited status must apply to a committee of industry experts—who are unaffiliated with any ESCO or any other company under consideration for accreditation—and then undergo a rigorous examination of their core competencies and business practices.

“As we have expanded our ability to deliver energy services across the country, the value of pursuing an accreditation has grown as well. In several states and for many clients, a NAESCO accreditation is a required qualification,” said Brian Floyd. “There are fewer than 30 other ESCOs accredited by NAESCO in the country, so achieving this benchmark reaffirms McKinstry’s position as a national industry leader.”

NAESCO accreditation demonstrates McKinstry’s prowess in delivering energy service across the U.S. Specifically, McKinstry was determined to possess the following qualifications by NAESCO:

  • The technical and managerial competence to develop comprehensive energy efficiency projects
  • The technical and managerial competence to provide a full range of energy services, including conducting energy audits, providing or arranging for project financing, design engineering, providing operations and maintenance services and verifying energy savings
  • Expertise with developing performance-based projects

McKinstry’s NAESCO accreditation will remain in effect for a minimum of two years before renewal.
