1. Cost Savings:  Municipalities reduce their energy consumption and operating costs. By implementing energy-efficient technologies and practices, municipalities can achieve significant cost savings over the contract term.

2. Guaranteed Savings: One of the key features of GESCs is that they guarantee a certain level of energy and cost savings. JMI commits to achieving specific performance targets, and if these targets are not met, they may be required to compensate the municipality for the shortfall.

3. No Upfront Costs: GESCs often allow municipalities to implement energy efficiency measures without upfront capital investment. JMI typically covers the initial costs of the project, and the municipality pays for the project over time through the realized energy savings.

4. Infrastructure Improvements: GESCs provide an opportunity for municipalities to upgrade and modernize their infrastructure. This may include improvements to lighting systems, HVAC systems, building envelopes, and other energy-consuming assets.

5. Environmental Benefits: By using GESCs to improve energy efficiency, the municipality can lower its greenhouse gas emissions and help the environment. This shows that the municipality cares about sustainability and being eco-friendly.

6. Risk Transfer: JMI guarantees the energy efficiency results. If the savings fall short of the target, JMI may have to pay the difference. The municipality can relax knowing that JMI bears the risk.

7. Long-Term Partnership:  The municipality and Innovation have worked together on GESCs for a long time. They keep checking, fixing, and improving the energy systems even after they are set up.

8. Job Creation: When the municipality does energy efficiency projects, it can hire more people from the area. These people can work on planning, setting up, and taking care of the energy systems. This way, the projects can benefit the local economy and the environment.

9. Compliance with Regulations: Some places have rules or plans that want or need the municipalities to use less energy. GESCs are a good way for municipalities to follow these rules or plans. They can also save money and help the planet by using GESCs.

10. Improved Public Facilities: Upgrading municipal facilities through GESCs can lead to improved comfort, safety, and functionality. This can positively impact the experience of citizens using public buildings and spaces
