A LinkedIn page for RPower indicates that it will offer services to insulate business customers' power supply from disruption while saving them money on their energy bills.
"RPower’s revolutionary business model of Resilience as a Service (RaaS) includes the design, development, installation, operation, and maintenance of on-site, behind-the-meter power generation sources," a LinkedIn page for RPower says
"These clean-burning, natural gas Generac generators -- dubbed RPower Resilient Generators (RGs) -- provide 100% of a customer’s electricity needs both in times of outages and peak pricing periods, with no upfront capital cost to the customer. Instead, the customer pays RPower a monthly RaaS fee as an operating cost, which is significantly offset by the energy savings the generators earn via monetization through various energy and capacity programs," a LinkedIn page for RPower says
