WESCO manages Tax-Exempt Lease Purchases (TELP) allowing public entities to implement energy-saving programs without voter approval.


Energy upgrades for city, state, and federal buildings face unique implementation challenges.  We manage Tax-Exempt Lease Purchases (TELP) allowing public entities to implement energy-saving technology programs without voter approval.  This helps spread the cost over time allowing energy savings to exceed the lease cost to deliver cash flow positive transactions.  Frequently, no taxpayer funds are required as the savings generated can be used to pay the lease amount. 

Facilities such as military bases, transportation hubs, prisons, office buildings, and parking garages require unique expertise to help the organization lower costs and maximize taxpayer value. Proper lighting and controls can enhance the overall feeling of safety and security while also showcasing architectural features and monuments. In today’s smart cities, lighting infrastructure can even serve as the backbone of new information and energy networks and contribute to a municipality’s resiliency plans.
