MESA® (Managed Energy Services Agreements)

MESA® (Managed Energy Services Agreement) is an innovative business model created by SCIenergy that uses hidden energy savings to finance infrastructure upgrades.

Under MESA®, building owners pay SCIenergy a fee equivalent to or slightly less than their historical utility bill while SCIenergy assumes responsibility for the owner’s utility bills and pays for any upgrades through savings, disrupting traditional models by minimizing investment risk and project responsibility for owners.
