Company Summary

Demeter Power is the 1st company to offer scalable, 3rd-party ownership financing for commercial distributed energy projects. This market is worth $20 - $30 billion per year and almost completely untapped. Demeter seeks to lead the massive shift from traditional power to a more decentralized and distributed network of individual producers and consumers that generate energy right where it is needed -- as part of the building where it will be used.
