Why Did Catalyst Power Purchase U.S. Energy Partners?

First and foremost, USEP’s goals align with our four core pillars: positive environmental impact, immediate savings, long-term budget certainty, and outage protection. USEP’s offerings include renewable energy, fixed-rate and indexed plans, and community solar from various solar projects in New York.

We view the integration with USEP as a crucial step toward our continual development of distributed solar, natural gas engines, and other energy supply options for middle-market commercial and industrial customers.

If you select a solar solution (say that five times fast), we will install a solar array on the property of your business at no cost to you. Then we’ll sell that energy to you at a lower cost to both you and the environment. So you’re saving money and the planet at the same time. Learn more here.

How Does the Gas Generator Work with Catalyst Power?

If your business requires a generator solution, we will install the correct size of gas-fired generator on your property at no cost to you. Then we’ll sell that energy to you at a lower cost. Learn more here.

How Does Traditional Power and Gas Work with Catalyst Power?

How Does Community Solar Work with Catalyst Power?

You can save on your electric bill and help the environment by supporting renewable energy generation in your area. The solar farm creates solar electricity and adds it to the electricity grid. Supporting that generation will earn you solar energy credits on your monthly bill, which guarantees you a discount on your energy costs. Learn more here.

Retail Choice

How Does my Relationship with my Utility Company Change with Catalyst Power.

Nothing changes! They will remain responsible for the lines, poles, and meters in your area.

How Does Billing Work with Catalyst Power?

If you sign up for solar panels or a gas-fired generator, you will still receive an energy supply bill each billing cycle. That bill will credit you for the energy produced on your property. You’ll also receive a separate PPA bill for that produced energy.

If you sign up with Catalyst Power via a retail Power Purchase Agreement, then you will simply see one energy supply bill each billing cycle.

If you sign up with Catalyst Power via Community Solar, you will see one energy supply bill each billing cycle, and that bill will reflect the solar credits.

What is a Connected Microgrid?

Using a concept called distributed generation, we install solar panels or a gas-fired generator on your premises at no cost to you. Then, you buy that energy at a price that undercuts your utility cost. Excess energy generated at your facility is distributed to the Grid and shortfalls are supplied from the Grid. You stay connected.
