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 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 a new and more attractive financing option – Chateau’s Energy Efficiency-as-a-Service (EaaS).
Chateau’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 partners to find financing for your project at competitive rates. Instead of purchasing new equipment with your capital expenditure, Energy Efficiency-as-a-Service unlocks available net profits from new efficiencies immediately. The idea is simple. Chateau 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.
Easy, isn’t it?
