Background on EEaS Request for Projects
Seattle City Light is launching an Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaS) pilot program and is inviting interested building owners and developers who work within their service territory to submit project proposals. To learn more about the program, please review the program manual and term sheet available here. All proposals must be submitted by April 24, 2020.
EEaS Pilot Program At-A-Glance:
- Implement energy efficiency upgrades or construct a new efficient building per EEaS program requirements.
- City Light customer is billed for electricity delivered plus the electricity savings (what the building would have used had no improvement occurred). Electricity savings are noted on the bill as a service fee, based on the electricity rates of the building. The customer pays for electricity costs as if no improvement had occurred, and remains bill-neutral.
- The financial benefit of electricity savings collected by City Light is paid back to the building owner or energy efficiency developer through a Power Purchase Agreement.
