Frequently Asked Questions

How do customers pay for these upgrades?

An Energy Service Agreement (ESA) is an appealing financing option for energy efficiency projects where the service provider pays for the upfront costs of the equipment and performs both routine and emergency maintenance. ESA contracts include standard, predictable payments, while the building owner benefits immediately from modern equipment, a better tenant experience and generally lower energy costs. The equipment acts as the collateral, so an ESA doesn’t require a lien on the building.

How does BlocPower’s software, BlocMaps, work with utilities?

BlocMaps is a building analytics and program design tool. It allows a utility’s sustainability team to design and simulate citywide building electrification or energy efficiency programs with an environmental justice focus so that they can set their programs up for success.
BlocMaps has three components:
  • a curated buildings database,
  • predictive data models, and
  • software for data analysis and visualization.
This combination of insights and analysis tools enable program owners to prioritize project opportunities based on their  greenhouse gas emissions reduction and environmental justice goals, and predict and present the aggregate impact and cost of executing these projects.
