Direct Asset Ownership

End-user provides upfront capital and receives all economic returns and energy savings, but takes on all performance, commodity and construction risk. GIE can provide a long term service contract. 

Lease Structure

The end user avoids paying upfront costs, but is responsible for monthly lease payments that will be used to pay down initial investment. Monthly payments are not tied to energy purchase or usage. End-user is responsible for ongoing operations and maintenance. GIE can provide long term service contract.

Energy Services Agreement (ESA)

Allows the end-user to have ownership of the efficiency measures, while paying back the initial investment made by GIE through a long-term agreement tied to actual energy savings. 

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

GIE provides upfront capital and takes ownership of the energy efficiency system, providing stable energy pricing over a long-term contract to the end user.
