“In partnering with EnergySage, we hope to provide participants with a deeper, more robust experience as they tour this year’s projects,” said Jenifer Marrapese, Executive Director of NESEA. “Our mission to drive broader adoption of energy efficiency and sustainability is directly aligned with that of EnergySage. As consumers learn from their peers who have successfully implemented renewable solutions, and become more familiar with these technologies, they are more likely to start using them themselves.”
For NESEA’s member network of sustainable energy and sustainable building professionals, the virtual tour is a valuable marketing vehicle for extending brand recognition and increasing a potential consumer's awareness of their experience and capabilities. Through these customer testimonials, consumers will be able to see the actual results of NESEA members’ work in action. These case studies showcase examples of energy efficiency and clean energy installations across a broad range of applications, property types and geographies, giving consumers confidence to take action for their own properties.
As a member of NESEA, EnergySage is committed to making clean energy more accessible to consumers. “We believe that evaluating and investing in clean energy systems should be as easy as buying any other home appliance,” continues Aggarwal. The property profiles within the company’s peer to peer community as well as its comprehensive suite of educational and analytical tools, provide consumers with the knowledge needed to make confident clean energy system purchases. In June, the company announced that it received a Department of Energy SunShot Startup Investment to develop and implement additional functionality to its current web offering. In late 2012 it will launch a web-based solar photovoltaic (PV) comparison-shopping platform. Aggarwal expects that the EnergySage platform will do for the solar PV market what LendingTree has done for the mortgage market.
