Infrastructure as a Service®

We pay to convert infrastructure into a reliable, safe and efficient utility service in a manner that protects institutions, the assets, and taxpayers.

Zero upfront costs, month-to-month, government friendly contracts for municipalities, universities, schools, hospitals, water/rail/power districts, ports, and HOAs.

We partner with these important institutions to replace unreliable, unsafe and costly infrastructure with modern solutions, robustly engineered with embedded long-term support. We can pay for 100% of design, materials and installation, and ensure that assets are continually maintained in a state of good repair. Sustainability Partners is a usage based utility model. We assume ownership responsibilities of essential infrastructure without interfering with your use.

When essential infrastructure assets are modernized, significant cost savings are achieved as old, unreliable and costly assets are replaced.

SP’s robustly engineered design requirements, direct procurement, and uncompromising maintenance yield real total cost savings. SP is a clear alternative to traditional purchase or public works procurement of RFP’s, Budgeting, Financing, Bonding, Renting, PPP’s, EPCs and Shared Savings arrangements. Our flexible structure allows the agreement to be a lease or non-lease. Learn more about our Infrastructure Utility Service here.

SP Makes the Old Become New

CLEAN WATER & WASTEWATER

Products

Smart Flow Metering | Water Heaters | Watering Systems | Sewage Pipes & Pumps | Gravity Sewer and Force Mains | Wastewater Treatment | Wells

Impact

Water is one of the world’s most precious resources. Our good stewardship is imperative and made possible with advanced water technologies and communications which improve water resource management. Real time data yields operational and energy-related benefits including automated leak detection, water measurement and verification, optimized system operations, reduced pollution, and inherent water and energy conservation all contributing to the overall health of communities and future generations. 

CLEAN TRANSPORTATION

Products

Government Fleet Vehicles & Optimization | Charging Infrastructure | Trucks & Refuse Vehicles | Compression Station

Impact

The United States imports about 45% of the petroleum it consumes and transportation accounts for more than 70% of total U.S. petroleum consumption. Replacing just 7% of the oil used in the U.S. each year with natural gas would save consumers $25.6 billion a year. That works out to $130.61 per licensed driver every year. The number is meaningful, but remember: That’s generated by replacing only 7% of oil used with natural gas. If half of the current amount of oil used was replaced with natural gas there would be a $182.9 billion a year savings, or nearly $1,000 per year per driver.

BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Products

HVAC | RTUs | Cooling Towers | Air Handlers | Heat Pumps | Boilers | Pumps | Smart LED Lighting | Occupancy Sensors  

Impact

Modern facility solutions eligible for LEED certification rating system points are efficient, environmentally friendly, significantly cut costs, and provide real-time energy saving updates. Utilizing smart controls and remote monitoring along with optimization software can transform an inefficient building to an extraordinarily improved system providing better comfort at a lower cost.

ARTIFICIAL TURF

Products

Sports Fields | Parks | Recreational Centers 

Impact

Decrease maintenance and chemical use with artificial turf for safe, durable, long-term community use regardless of the weather.

MOTORS

Products

VFD’s | ECM | Pumps | Induction

Impact

Replacing old motors with new technologies reduces power requirements due to the improved efficiency of the newer technology. Variable speed motors in pumping applications, like those in swimming pools, ponds, and other bodies of water, allow for proper water turnover at lower speeds while still providing necessary cleaning at high speeds.

POWER CONDITIONING & STORAGE

Products

Demand Charge (Stem) | Conditioning | Peak Storage | Batteries | Ultracaps

Impact

Power conditioning and storage upgrades help level load and peak requirements while also preventing damage to essential equipment.

CLEAN ENERGY GENERATION

Products

Solar Syngas Generator | Natural Gas Engine | Micro Turbine Electricity Generation | Fuel Cell CoGen

Impact

Natural gas is unique among our energy choices because we have vast domestic supplies and underutilized capacity. It plays a growing role in generating cleaner, affordable electricity for America’s homes and businesses. Current natural gas generation capacity is underutilized and natural gas is a highly attractive choice for building new capacity. Natural gas is also a strong complement to renewable energy, providing reliable power when the wind isn’t blowing or the sun isn’t shining.
