Clients often tell us we are easy to work with, quick to respond and innovative in our approach. We credit the depth of our experience and lessons learned over the years that inform our solutions to your energy efficiency challenges. Our programs integrate several key concepts that lead to success: local job creation, ongoing evaluation and tweaking, attention to detail and the use of innovative technologies.
OUR CORE VALUES
PROGRAM DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT
We enroll, train and motivate contractors to participate in energy efficiency programs. Local contractor networks extend coverage geographically and to hard-to-reach customers. We also hire and train local employees as needed. In addition to expanding the reach of the program, they offer further insight into the local market. A majority of our Energy Advisors are bilingual.
TAKING THE PULSE
Daily tracking and data management put critical program info at our fingertips. By constantly assessing all aspects of program performance we can make immediate, real-time improvements. We also use our database to further engage contractors by identifying ways in which they can enhance their services and find more customers.
PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Quality is one of our core values. We stress the importance of quality with our employees and program contractors and train them in our customer service policies and procedures. This leads to happier customers, more successful contractors and a smooth-running program overall.
STAYING ON TOP OF TECHNOLOGY
Technology is constantly changing. Our team reviews the latest energy efficiency technologies and works with manufacturers and distributors to determine which new measures are the best fit for our programs.
CHANGING MINDS AND INFLUENCING BEHAVIOR
We hone in on the particular needs of the target market when designing program promotion and customer enrollment strategies, combining proven marketing and outreach activities with “boots on the ground.” Our seasoned team of Energy Advisors provide grass-roots canvassing, conduct the energy audit or assessment, identify opportunities for saving energy and overcome market barriers. For example, our Energy Advisors use our Energy Snapshot® to calculate potential cost savings and provide customers with a payback analysis to document the return on their investment.
