EnergySage and WattzOn Equip Municipalities and Businesses with White-Label Platform to Help Homeowners Cut Energy Costs

Integrated Solution Gives Residents Easy Ways to Reduce Energy Consumption and Realize the Financial Benefits of Solar Energy Systems

BOSTON and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — EnergySage and WattzOn, the premier provider of web and mobile engagement tools for tracking and reducing home energy expenses, announced today that WattzOn has integrated the ground-breaking EnergySage online Solar Marketplace into its white-label offerings. The combined platform enables municipalities and businesses to provide homeowners with unbiased, effective ways to decrease energy consumption and costs through a complete menu of opportunities.

The EnergySage WattzOn platform gives national partners and local communities the ability to offer homeowners a complete solution for saving money and saving energy, from simple changes and purchases to off-setting energy expenses by going solar. Municipalities and regional organizations can present residents with highly customized energy savings programs as well as seamless access to a marketplace of pre-screened local solar installers, financing options and key information about local solar rebates – everything they need to make a decision about solar adoption. National organizations can also brand the platform and offer broader programs that meet the needs of residents in any community.

“We work with municipalities across the country, creating and implementing self-funded sustainability programs that improve infrastructure and enhance the quality of life for their communities,” said Lindsey Corbin, vice president of business development at OpTerra Energy Solutions. “We see an increasing number of cities launch initiatives for residential solar energy adoption, water and energy conservation. We believe the EnergySage WattzOn integrated, plug-and-play platform can help our cities meet their community sustainability goals with trackable outcomes. The white-label feature is key – it allows cities to make it their own and build on the great work of their staff and local non-profits.”

Cities, employers and business partners rely on WattzOn’s suite of web and mobile tools to help homeowners save energy, water and money. The company’s software and powerful data analytics enable partners to present residents with a complete energy solution via personalized recommendations and energy consumption tracking. Other product features include product and rebate detail, tips for reducing energy use through easy lifestyle changes, and water saving solutions. WattzOn’s typical user saves nearly $240 per year in energy costs.

“Homeowners have a lot of options to choose from, ranging from habits and purchases to solar adoption, but this can be confusing. Our integrated platform covers all forms of energy savings and makes it easy for them to see their best solution,” said Dr. Martha Amram, founder and CEO of WattzOn. “Adding EnergySage allows our city and employer partners to serve all residents while remaining vendor neutral, and reinforces WattzOn’s reputation for unbiased, expert advice. The integrated offering provides our business partners with a platform for a single, national campaign under their brand, with complete localization of services. The EnergySage WattzOn offering opens up millions of dollars in residential energy savings.”

EnergySage is a single destination where prospective buyers can obtain the essential, objective information they need to evaluate solar energy systems and make informed purchasing decisions. Residents and business owners can quickly research and compare quotes for turnkey solar energy systems, including financing options. More than 250 pre-screened installers are in the EnergySage network nationwide, and local installers are presented to the user via micro-marketplaces. Consumers using EnergySage adopt solar at rates two to three times higher than industry norms and pay prices that are nearly 20 percent less than market averages.

“Our marketplace integration with WattzOn creates a best-of-breed energy solution that shows homeowners exactly how they can best manage energy consumption and benefit from clean energy adoption,” said EnergySage CEO Vikram Aggarwal. “Municipalities are particularly excited about offering customized micro-marketplaces to their residents, and opening up more business opportunity for installers and financiers within their communities. The EnergySage WattzOn platform provides a seamless experience for all residents – renters and owners – under one community program, and allows homeowners to select the solar installer and system best suited to their needs.”
