Energy Service Agreements
Let our team design-build an ESA-funded, cash-flow positive energy project for you
What is an Energy Service Agreement?
Energy Service Agreements (ESAs) are a relatively new kind of third party funding option which enable commercial and industrial businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and other government entities to install renewable systems and energy efficiency upgrades with zero upfront costs. ESAs involve a third party investor or developer that provides the capital to install and maintain energy systems for a client in exchange for regular service charges based on the actual performance of the installed systems. The investor may also take advantage of any available tax credits for products installed in the project.
Usually these agreements are facilitated using an Energy Service Provider or an Energy Service Company like EnergyLink that can design and build energy systems and facilitate funding for the project by finding an investor to back the Energy Service Agreement.

Which energy improvements do ESAs fund?
Energy Service Agreements are more flexible in what they can fund than Power Purchase Agreements or Solar Service Agreements, which can only fund solar installations. ESAs can fund:
