Power your energy infrastructure with Centrica Business Solutions' range of flexible contracting options

Centrica Business Solutions helps public and private entities understand contracting options available for their energy projects. By exploring alternative delivery methods, our customers can select the right approach for their organization to address deferred maintenance and close budget gaps while making significant strides toward sustainability goals. Alternative delivery methods have made infrastructure modernization more attainable, especially with recent legislative developments, grants, and incentives.

Several options are available to advance an energy project depending on the solution, its scale, and the needs of each entity. Some of the most common approaches include Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS), Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC), Power-Purchase Agreements (PPA), and Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE). Each option has its own advantages, and the choice will depend on the specific circumstances of the project owner and the project itself. 

Reed Intermediate School in Newtown, CT is saving $1.5M over 25 years by generating clean, efficient solar energy through a PPA.
