Managed Energy Service Agreement
Start a MESA-funded energy redevelopment project for no money down and lower your utility costs without having to deal with the challenges of owning the systems installed
What is a MESA Contract?
A Managed Energy Service Agreement (MESA) is a contract used for large energy projects (typically $500,000 and up) where a third-party owner funds that project and assumes responsibility for managing the energy usage. This includes handling the installation of all energy efficiency and renewable upgrades in the project scope and payment of utility bills. In exchange, the client pays an agreed-upon monthly fee based on previous utility history which is lower than the previous monthly utility expenditures, resulting in positive cash flows to the organization.
Businesses and nonprofits love MESA-funded projects because they do not have to deal with the challenges of operations and maintenance costs yet still realize positive cash flows through affordable and stable MESA payments. Investors have an affinity for Managed Energy Service Agreements, as they are able to secure the investment tax credits generated by the solar array as well as stable monthly MESA payments in exchange for a safe investment in renewable and energy efficiency assets.
