Potential Energy Savings

The harsh reality of NNN leases with base years or base stops is the split incentive. Building owners shoulder 100% of project costs while tenants get all the energy savings. Split incentives block major building improvement initiatives, even ones with above-market returns.

Building owners can’t take on projects that offer zero ROI. The result? Your projects don't get budgeted, causing a major setback for every party involved.

Deliver outstanding returns with fast payback and high ROI. Energy Savings Income solves the split incentive, allowing landlords to make a return and unlocking savings for tenants (and projects for contractors).

  • It’s not that anyone wants to waste tenants money with outdated and inefficient equipment. It’s a matter of complex lease structures that span the entire CRE market.
  • When building owners lack the financial incentive to implement building improvements, the simple truth is nothing gets done and tenants are left with increased costs.
  • EDi solves the split-incentive by generating cash flows from measured and calculated energy savings. With cash flows and actual ROIs, energy projects go from not possible to how soon can you start.

Trusted by industry leaders

Carbon Lighthouse predicted solid return on cost and environmental goals, so I did extensive due diligence on the technology and company, and I’m excited to say they performed well and returns exceeded what was promised. After capitalizing the perpeturl savings, we achieved a 3x return on equity. Where else can we get that in the current market? We’ve used them everywhere we can.
