How We Compare

Stop the painful cycle of RFI, RFP, budgeting, financing, bond, taxes, rental, PPA’s, leases and shared savings arrangements. This is NOT a loan, lease, financing agreement, bond, ESCO, installment purchase, rental, or ordinary sharing-agreement. We actually assume the ownership responsibilities and risks.

We pay for 100% of materials and installation and we continuously invest in well-funded maintenance, upgrades, and eventual replacements. 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.

With SP, you have no guaranteed minimums, terms, or debt. Simply pay for use.

A Behind the Scenes Utility

Utilities–like gas, electric, and water–are essential and easy to contract. They run continuously and reliably 24×7, 365 days, year after year.

Like a utility, we work behind the scenes to provide you essential infrastructure components with no demands on your budget. SP is committed to delivering utility type services inside your facilities through the creation of the first inside/internal utility and the SaaS™ model to fund, design, procure, install, maintain, warrant and continually upgrade equipment. Just like the outside utility companies, we bring our own capital to the table to provide what you need, when you need it, and where you need it.  We then maintain it as long as you are a customer, creating a win-win for everyone.

SP requires no facility guarantees, minimums or multi-year contracts. The new infrastructure is simply paid for by usage fees, when and if used. Thus, a school that is closed during the summer or spring break incurs no fees to SP.

While our service is comparable, our commitment goes beyond that of a traditional utility. We aren’t just delivering a standard product to your door. We work tirelessly to ensure your solutions are always at peak performance.
