SECO makes energy engineering expertise available to political subdivisions in Texas through its Technical Assistance Program (TAP). Eligible public entities include municipalities, counties, and other special-purpose districts such as port and transit authorities and airports.
SECO contracts with leading engineering firms having a high degree of technical knowledge. They provide customized, on-site, energy-related services across a broad spectrum, ranging from basic consultation to feasibility studies.
Officials of eligible entities may request assistance with either energy or water-related technical matters. Upon determination that the requested services are reasonable and within the contractors' scope of work, SECO will assign an engineer to contact the officials to determine the level of service necessary to provide assistance. There is no charge to the entity.
To initiate participation in the program, complete the Technical Assistance Request Form and email it to Stephen Ross.
For more information about TAP, contact Program Manager Stephen Ross.
