Energy Efficiency as a Service
Expression of Interest
City Light is planning to launch a new Energy Efficiency as a Service pilot, and wants to hear from interested building owners and contractors who work within our service territory. To learn more about the proposed pilot, please review the Expression of Interest (EOI) document and then take this brief survey to tell us about your interest. We will use the survey results to understand the level of interest and craft the formal project solicitation, which is expected to be released in Summer of 2019.
Proposed EEaS Program At-A-Glance:
- Upgrade building’s energy efficiency or construct new efficient building
- City Light bills the customer for actual energy delivered + energy savings (or what the building would have used had no improvement occurred). The energy savings are billed via a service fee, based on the energy rates of the current billing period.
- Customer passes on service fee to tenants. Tenants pay for actual delivered electricity + energy savings, essentially paying for energy costs as if no improvement had occurred, and remain bill-neutral.
- The financial benefit of electricity savings collected by City Light is paid back to the participant through a Power Purchase Agreement.
