Up and Running! Construction on $5.8MM Hospital Retrofit Complete

September 24th, 2014

On September 19th, Metrus’ $5.8 million retrofit project at Kuakini Medical Center was commissioned. The company’s largest ESA project to date is now operational and delivering significant economic and environmental value to the hospital. The project—which was completed on time and on budget—will annually reduce CO2 emissions by 2,956 tons, save 3.5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, and 10,800 therms of natural gas while saving Kuakini $1.1 million in annual utility expenses.

Energy Industries constructed the project and will now provide ongoing maintenance and equipment monitoring services to Kuakini that are paid for under Metrus’ ESA.

Metrus will continue to work with Kuakini and Energy Industries to ensure that energy savings are delivered and that new energy efficiency measures that emerge over time are incorporated into this project.

100,000 Negawatt Promotion – Get on the road to savings

September 26th, 2013

Metrus Energy has launched the first nationwide energy efficiency (EE) incentive program for large commercial, industrial and institutional customers who implement multi-measure retrofit projects. The offer provides 100,000 negawatts for free for customers who engage Metrus to develop and finance their retrofit projects using a Metrus Efficiency Services Agreement (ESA). Depending on your utility rates, this could be tens of thousands of dollars of savings above and beyond the benefits you get from implementing an efficiency retrofit.

Traditional state and utility EE incentives are a patchwork of programs that vary based on energy conservation measures (ECMs), customer type and geographic location. For example, a single customer with facilities in 10 different locations might need to talk to 10 different utilities about potential energy efficiency incentives. Metrus has changed the landscape of EE incentives by providing a 100,000 negawatts incentive for all large customers anywhere in the United States for any type of ECMs.

Negawatts Offer: How It Works

To get started, give us a call at 415-284-5000, fill out a project form, or send us an email to discuss your efficiency objectives and plans. To qualify for the incentive, you must sign an LOI with Metrus before December 31, 2013. Metrus then selects an optimal ESCO or works with your existing contractor to design an integrated retrofit project with deep energy savings. Metrus invests 100% of the project cost, verifies project performance, and bills you for services delivered. ESA service payments are based on actual energy units that are saved or “negawatts” (i.e., avoided kilowatt hours of electricity, avoided therms of natural gas, etc). On your first ESA statement, you receive 100,000 negawatts at no charge, while getting the benefits of upgraded energy equipment and systems without any CAPEX or performance risk.

Join Metrus’ Webinar on 6/27 to learn about Energy Efficiency Finance.

June 13th, 2013

At Metrus, we develop and finance projects that enable energy efficiency to become a resource for our customers; in other words, we create negawatts. While many building owners and facilities managers understand that the cheapest kilowatthour is the one you don’t consume, most energy efficiency projects leave a lot of energy savings on the table. To help our customers and partners identify the best financing vehicle to get more negawatts out of their projects, Metrus has created an infographic: Which Financing Vehicle Gets You on the Road to Energy Efficiency.

Check it out, pass it along, and, attend a free introductory customer webinar on our Efficiency Service Agreement (ESA) on June 27th at 11am PST.
