PAYS® Pilot Program Review                  





That the Committee reviews and comments on this report and considers recommending to Council that the Green Hayward PAYS® be terminated by December 31, 2019.





The Green Hayward PAYS® (Pay-As-You-Save) pilot program has been available to multifamily property owners since the summer of 2015. To date, six projects have been completed using the PAYS® on-bill repayment program. The Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) is developing a Regional Water Bill Savings Program (RWBSP) intended to replace and expand on the existing on-bill repayment programs offered by Hayward and other water agencies. Staff recommends that the Green Hayward PAYS® program be terminated effective December 31, 2019 and that consideration be given to the City’s participation in the RWBSP.
