The Aegis Shared Savings Program
In addition to available utility, state and federal incentives, Aegis has developed its own program which allows clients to take advantage of energy cost-savings without requiring any capital investments or operating expenses.
Through the Shared Savings Program, Aegis designs, installs, owns, maintains, fuels and operates a modular cogeneration system at no cost to the facility. The CHP system is interfaced with electrical and mechanical systems to provide both metered electrical and thermal energy (heat).
The produced cogenerated electricity is then provided at a discount from prevailing utility electrical rates while heat is provided at standard cost.
At any time during the life of the agreement, the host site has the opportunity to purchase the equipment at a decreasing cost.
- No upfront capital cost for installation
- No annual maintenance fees
- Reduced electric utility cost up to 15% annually
- Reduced carbon footprint
- Customers can qualify for no-cost LEED points for the USGBC
- Increases the longevity of existing heating equipment
- Aegis has accessed millions of dollars from various funding sources on behalf of clients
