Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaS) Pilot:

Seattle City Light has launched a new Energy Efficiency as a Service pilot and wants to hear from interested building owners and contractors who work within their service territory.

EEaS aims to unlock deeper energy efficiency in commercial buildings by helping to overcome the split incentive and paying for measured electricity savings over a 10+ year time horizon. Instead of paying up-front incentives that come out of the general utility fund (a disbursement-style model common among utility industry), EEaS creates a business model wherein tenants – the ultimate beneficiaries of energy efficiency upgrades – effectively fund deep retrofits over time from their energy bills. Landlords benefit from increased asset values, a new revenue stream, and more marketable green buildings. Tenants receive the comfort and productivity benefits associated with leasing space in a green building. Society benefits in the long-term from substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption.

Buildings participating in EEaS will be billed for the electricity the building would have used, had no energy improvements occurred. By keeping the building’s monthly utility bills “neutral” and passing on the benefit of the energy savings, the pilot aims to aid in recouping the initial investment. The financial value of the savings are transferred to the entity responsible for financing the energy retrofits, by Seattle City Light purchasing the electricity savings using a long-term power purchase agreement contract.
