The federal government, the single largest user of energy in the country, awarded Seattle-based McKinstry, a 10-year contract worth up to $5B for a series of energy efficient projects in federal government buildings. McKinstry will design, build and obtain funding for energy saving projects. The federal government will pay for the work over time from the savings realized in the utility bills. No net cash outlay for U.S. taxpayers. Ahlers & Cressman PLLC is a proud business partner of McKinstry.
