Imagine a future where infrastructure updating and maintenance allocations are completely absent from your budgets. Sustainability Partners enables this by collaborating closely with facility staff to replace worn infrastructure with cost-saving solutions, materials, product installation, long-term support, and guaranteed performance.

Organizations everywhere have difficulty implementing and financing high-impact efficiency solutions. Securing personal or corporate guarantees, leases, performance contracts, security liens, or mortgages and bonds are often not available or desirable. SP has the answer; use a behind the meter, infrastructure utility structure to provide inexpensive rates for resource saving on large capital projects. Our simple, utility-structured SaaS® agreements give customers high impact solutions with no cash outlay, personal or corporate guarantees, security interests or collateral, thereby making the transaction completely off balance sheet.

Modernizing infrastructure typically reduces your utility expenditure by half

There are 542 full service airports, which have regular airlines and fly planes with at least over 9 passengers. An average full service airport spends $16.7M annually on utilities on average. This corresponds to a national spending of $9.1Bn. With more efficient lighting and water consumption technology, these airports can save money and put it towards improved flight safety.

Executive Order 13423
  • 30% reduction in vehicle fleet petroleum use by 2020
  • 26% improvement in water efficiency by 2020
  • 50% recycling and waste diversion by 2015
  • 95% of all applicable contracts will meet sustainability requirements
  • Implementation of the 2030 net-zero-energy building requirement

City / State / Federal Buildings

Municipals nationally spend $7Bn annually on utilities. Parks & Rec program utility consumption can be improved and be put towards stronger communities.

Commercial Buildings

Data warehouses use about 30 billion watts of electricity, roughly equivalent to the output of 30 nuclear power plants. Data centers in the United States account for 1/4 to 1/3 of that load.

Most data centers consume vast amounts of energy in an incongruously wasteful manner. Online companies typically run their facilities at maximum capacity around the clock, wasting 90 percent or more of the electricity they pull off the grid.

Data Centers

Wasted outdoor lighting that shines directly upward, is estimated at 17,400 gigawatt-hours a year. At an average of $.10 per kilo watt-hour the cost of that wasted energy is $1.74 billion a year.

If all of these fixtures were replaced with quality 35 watt low pressure sodium fixtures (getting better lighting as well), it would save over $500M/year giving 24 month payback conversion.

Highways / Streets / Parking

There are 5,723 hospitals in the United States, each spending on average $1.5 million worth on utilities annually. This corresponds to a national annual consumption of $8.8Bn. With more efficient lighting and utilities, this money can be saved and used to improve patient care.

Hospitals

More efficient utility consumption in multi-family dwellings can reduce the costs of rent for tenants and improve profits for landlords.

Multi-Family Housing

According to the U.S. Government Energy Star, the combined annual energy costs for U.S. commercial buildings ($107.9 billion) and industrial facilities ($94.4 billion) is $202.3 billion. Portion of energy in buildings used inefficiently or unnecessarily: 30 percent.

The amount of money that would be saved if the energy efficiency of commercial and industrial buildings improved by 10 percent: $20 billion.

Parks and Recreation

Police stations—and other civic facilities that must be occupied 24/7—typically use more energy and other resources than traditional office buildings; their energy costs alone can be two to three times as high.

Buildings can incorporate ultra-efficient dual-flush toilets, waterless urinals, low-flow sink fixtures, and instantaneous-use boilers that together save more than 100,000 gallons a year. The result has been a more than 40 percent reduction in water use.

Police & Fire Stations

In schools, more money is spent on energy than textbooks & computers combined.

According to the EPA, educational institutions in the US spend nearly $14 billion annually on energy, of which 30% is wasted or inefficently used. Reduction in the waste in energy spending means more money for teacher salaries, textbooks and computers.

Schools and Universities

Over 80 percent of all communities in the US rely exclusively on trucks to deliver all of their fuel, clothing, medicine, and other consumer goods.

The trucking industry employs 10 million people in jobs that relate directly to trucking. The trucking industry is the industry of small business, considering 93 percent of interstate motor carriers (over 500,000) operate 20 or fewer trucks.

Transportation Fleet Owners

According to EIA data, national, annual electricity transmission and distribution losses average about 7% of the electricity that is transmitted in the United States.

Every day leaking pipes lose an estimated seven billion gallons of clean drinking water.
