Energy Efficiency as a Service

Request for Projects

City Light is launching an Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaS) pilot program and is inviting interested building owners and contractors who work within our service territory to submit project proposals. To learn more about the program, please review the Request for Projects (RFP) document.

An Information Session will be held on August 29th at Smart Building Center from 9:30am to 11:30am where we will walk through the program details of the new EEaS pilot and answer any questions you might have. The information session can be attended in person or via webinar. Please sign up here.

 

Proposed EEaS Program At-A-Glance:

  • Building owner implements energy efficiency upgrades or constructs a new efficient building per EEaS program requirements.
  • City Light customer is billed for electricity delivered plus the electricity savings (what the building would have used had no improvement occurred). Electricity savings are noted on the bill as a service fee, based on the electricity rates of the current billing period. The customer pays for electricity costs as if no improvement had occurred, and remains bill-neutral.
  • The financial benefit of electricity savings collected by City Light is paid back to the building owner or energy efficiency contractor through a Power Purchase Agreement.

The EEaS Program Manual is expected to be available on this page at the end of August. It will include the Participation Agreement, Power Purchase Agreement, Quarterly Project and Workforce Reporting Template, Reporting and M&V Requirements.
