Explore our innovative financing packages

Whether you choose our Energy Services Agreement (ESA) option or Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) option – or purchase your energy solution with upfront capital or a low-interest loan – be confident that you have the right partner to help your organization leverage the power of energy to improve your organization’s efficiency, enhance resilience and prepare for the future.

Energy efficiency financing with an ESA

Use our ESA to transform your energy infrastructure with no capital outlay

Our ESA financing option is a pay-for-performance solution that allows organizations to realize their energy ambitions by implementing energy efficiency projects. Organizations can upgrade or install new, efficient cogeneration systems across their footprint, all without the need for an upfront investment. This energy efficiency financing option is ideal for organizations that want to improve the reliability, efficiency, and resilience of their facility.

An ESA makes it simple to implement a more efficient energy infrastructure. You sign a contract with Centrica Business Solutions, allowing you to purchase energy produced by a cogeneration unit installed at your site for a term between 10 and 20 years. Centrica Business Solutions funds the costs associated with the implementation of the project and retains ownership, operation responsibilities, and maintenance of the system. You make payments to Centrica Business Solutions that are tied to the hours of operation and/or kWh produced – when the term concludes, you have the option to purchase the system.

Businesses who choose our ESA option benefit from a savings guarantee, measured through the performance of the system. This creates a holistic energy solution including maintenance and support provided by Centrica Business Solutions.

This commercial solar panel financing option is ideal for organizations looking to reap the many benefits of installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on their site. The PPA requires no upfront investment and no solar PV system ownership responsibilities – Centrica Business Solutions is responsible for any maintenance needed for the solar PV system and for the removal of the system at the end of the contract.
