General Manager of Ouachita Electric Cooperative
"Ouachita Electric began to seek approval for HELP PAYS, our Tariff On-Bill financing program in 2015. So far our local workforce has earned over 4 Million dollars by installing Energy Efficiency Upgrades in members’ homes, apartments and buildings.
EEtility facilitates all aspects of our program and provides the estimated savings for program upgrades, accuracy is critical to successful results. In fact, not only are our members saving money and living in more comfortable homes, Ouachita Electric is receiving peak demand savings of 1.5 to 2 KW per participant, thus recovering the cost of the program. EEtility’s knowledgeable staff and their team of collaborators have guided Ouachita Electric down the best path forward to achieving our energy efficiency program goals and objectives. I would encourage every Utility that is looking at On-Bill Financing in earnest to consider EEtility and take advantage of their expertise. They have been a partner in our success and would make excellent partners for any utility."

"We initially chose EEtility to be our Upgrade To $ave Program Operator because we wanted to make sure our Tariff On-Bill program was best positioned to meet our goals without adding to our staff. EEtility's success is attributable to them deploying a turnkey program operations system combined with their high level of energy efficiency expertise, outstanding professionalism, and their innovative suite of services. They have helped us make a lasting impact in the lives of our member-owners."

"AEC recently contracted with EEtility as the program operator for our new energy efficiency program based on the PAYS® system. EEtility came highly recommended by several sister cooperatives, and I must say, they were right on target.
EEtility did a phenomenal job of onboarding our local contractors, taking them step by step through the process of developing a quality energy efficiency audit. Their expertise and professionalism, combined with accessible and effective field teaching techniques, immediately demonstrated their industry knowledge and garnered respect. When introducing our employees to the new program, EEtility stepped up again and provided a learning experience that was both informative and engaging.
AEC was looking for a solution that didn't require additional staff, and we found it with EEtility as our program operator. Even though we are still in the early stages of our project, they have already proven to be the right choice: seamlessly integrating the needs of both our contractors and our members in order to provide the best possible energy efficiency program experience."
President of Energy Efficiency Institute
“EEtility is the first multistate PAYS® program operator in the country and the only one that EEI has licensed to run PAYS® programs for utilities who have not paid EEI for a license to use our Intellectual Property. EEI agreed to this arrangement because EEtility has demonstrated its ability to start and operate successful PAYS® programs in several states, produce offer acceptance rates of 70% to 90%, and provide excellent customer service. We are confident in EEtility’s ability to start-up, operate, and scale PAYS Programs anywhere. We couldn't be happier about our partnership.”
