The Company is confident in its ability to achieve sustained positive adjusted EBITDA results when it reaches its target of 50 MW - of deployed rental units, combined with its recent across-the-board price increase that went into effect on January 30, 2022. This new contract represents the continued expansion of the EaaS strategy and is indicative of ongoing customer demand. The large West Texas energy producer will use the microturbine energy systems to power production loads using the on-site gas produced from its day-to-day operations.
The 3.6 MW of Capstone systems will replace traditional reciprocating engine generator rental units. Capstone Green Energy’s EaaS solution was selected due to its proven track record of reliability in the oil and gas fields across the world and its extremely low emissions profile as the energy company looks to decarbonize its operations. Additionally, the customer will benefit from fixed operating costs for the duration of the rental since all maintenance is included in the contract, providing cost savings and added convenience.
“Our focus remains our EaaS rental business and the benefits it brings us, including higher margin rates and predictable revenues and cash flow while transitioning us away from being only a manufacturing company. The growth shows our customers both need and want this solution and that we can provide it, solving both our customer’s needs and driving returns for our shareholders,” stated Capstone Green Energy President and Chief Executive Officer Darren Jamison.
“Our overall financial goals are unchanged: we are focused on growing revenue and reaching positive Adjusted EBITDA on a sustainable basis. EaaS is a pivotal factor in achieving this goal in conjunction with our recent price increase and cost control initiatives. I am confident we will meet our strategic goal of 50 MW by March 31, 2023, as we continue to manage customer delivery dates and navigate the global supply chain challenges,” added Mr. Jamison.
