What is energy-as-a-service?
Energy-as-a-service, also known as EaaS, gives customers access to energy management services without upfront costs. These services, which may include asset and energy use management, are tailored to a customer’s specific energy goals and delivered through a contract with a services company. Similar to a software-as-a-service model, with EaaS, you avoid capital expenditures like equipment costs and maintenance and pay only for ongoing service.
EaaS helps consumers and communities improve energy resilience and sustainability, while also reducing performance risk and capital burden. Learn how Montgomery County’s microgrids create sustainable energy.
