Chateau energy efficiency upgrades pay for themselves—that’s the whole point

Today more than 85% of energy efficiency projects are still funded through company capital budgets. However, a lot of value in energy efficiency is being left on the table. Did you know that 77% of identified opportunities don’t get implemented due to lack of capital being available?

Fortunately, the Chateau Energy team knows that access to capital to approve energy projects isn’t always necessary. This gap between viable projects and those that get funded internally has led to the creation of new and more attractive energy finance solutions – one of which is Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS).

Chateau Energy’s EaaS program is the ideal way to implement sustainable solutions without any up-front costs. If a project would typically meet your company’s investment hurdle rate, we can use our network of well-established, institutionally backed capital partners to find financing for your project at competitive rates.

EaaS Benefits:

Below are a few EaaS benefits:

  • Guaranteed savings
  • No capital expenditure
  • No balance sheet impact
  • Third-party owned and operated

Instead of purchasing new equipment with your capital expenditure, Energy-as-a-Service unlocks available net profits from new efficiencies immediately. The idea is simple. Chateau Energy designs, installs, and maintains the update and monitors its performance, while you use measurable energy savings generated by the upgrade to stay cash flow positive. Your organization can start Making Energy an Asset® by driving out needless costs and inefficiencies without the need for approved capital expenditures.

Different technologies require different financial approaches. For example, energy conserving assets, like LED lighting, can pay for themselves out of the savings they achieve. Energy generating assets, like solar arrays, require offtake agreements to ensure the long-term profitability of the asset.

While some organizations have both the resources and interest to invest in energy infrastructure upgrades, others prefer allocating internal resources to core business initiatives. That’s where Chateau Energy comes in.

If you are looking for business finance solutions, save your capex funds. Balance sheets and capital are for investing in what’s truly important—core business operations.

Let us help you finance sustainable energy infrastructure to scale the impact of emerging technologies.
