Under the Department of Energy IDIQ ESPC Leidos will design, construct, and install an energy and water savings program intended to promote the use of renewable energy technologies, acquire energy and water conservation services, reduce energy or water consumption and associated utility costs, and reduce energy and water-related operations and maintenance costs.
