US Energy Operating Services is a California-based company that owns electrical generation and CHP facilities on long-term contracts to provide power purchase agreements (PPAs) to municipal and educational customers in select markets. The firm owns facilities developed by US Energy and its partners.
US Energy Operating Services often owns the facilities when there is a financial advantage to the customer to outsource total operations or to capture federal, state and local credits that are not available to municipal agencies. Most contracts are in excess of 15 years and include guaranteed results in the areas of generation quantities, system up-time, regulatory compliance or financial return.
The facilities include:
- Bio-gas generation facilities
- Dual-fuel, combined heat and power (CHP) systems
- Solar power facilities
- Street and parking lighting systems
