Implementing PAYS® in Your State or At Your Utility

The Pay As You Save®system can be tailored to individual gas, electric, and water utilities to meet the needs of each utility and its customers.

PAYS was created by Harlan Lachman and Paul A. Cillo of the Energy Efficiency Institute, Inc. EEI is committed to working with legislators, policymakers, energy-efficiency and renewable-energy advocates, utilities, and regulators to develop a PAYS infrastructure that effectively stimulates resource efficiency, renewable energy, and distributed generation investments consistent with local economic realities and long-range plans. Please contact EEI for more information or review the information describing the Pay As You Save system or the PAYS presentations on this website.

Use of the Pay As You Save® and PAYS® trademarks are available at no cost to utilities and state regulators who wish to implement programs that meet the essential elements and minimum program requirements of the PAYS system.
