Spotlight on Savings: The Aegis Shared Savings Program

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Sep 22

If this year has taught us anything, it’s this: expect the unexpected. Being in the business we are in, we’ve done a good job helping our customers prepare for unexpected energy issues, suggesting Combined Heat and Power (CHP) as a reliable solution—in terms of both energy production, consumption—and costs.

To the latter point, our in-house experts routinely monitor available federal, state and local funding sources, sensing trends and patterns, often anticipating changes to programs before they are publicly announced.

Even with all our research, we never could have anticipated this year’s pandemic or widespread economic recovery votes and programs that would supersede energy initiatives. In the spirit of planning for the unexpected, we have in place a contingency plan: a funding source called The Aegis Shared Savings Program that is independent of government bodies, unaffected by votes or vetoes, and unique to our company.

Shared Savings Program

As the name implies, our program shares the savings realized by way of CHP. Through our Shared Savings Program, we can design, install, operate and retain ownership of the CHP system at no capital or maintenance cost to your facility.

You might be asking, “What’s the catch?”

We can assure you, as could over 50 customers who have taken advantage of the program, that there is no catch. And in fact, there are nothing but benefits to speak of.

No Capital? No Problem

Although alluded to above, the main benefit of our Shared Savings Program is so important, it’s worth reinforcing. We recognize that a CHP installation is a significant investment if paid for outright, and for some businesses, that expense could put CHP out of reach. We also recognize that over time, the system pays for itself, and with this knowledge, we knowingly support set-up costs associated with Shared Savings projects, and likewise, share in the positive results yielded through the unit’s operation.

While on the topic of costs, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that customers who opt-in to this program are also free from annual maintenance fees, and routinely see reduced electric utility costs—up to 15% annually.

Additional Benefits

There are several other benefits—costs aside—to speak of in relation to CHP. Namely:

  • It reduces your company’s carbon footprint
  • You can qualify for no-cost LEED points for the U.S. Green Building Council
  • It increases the longevity of existing heating equipment
  • You have the option to purchase the installation at any time throughout the life of the agreement at a decreasing cost
