If you use Kayak to hunt down the cheapest airfares, then it won’t be hard for you to grasp what EnergySage wants to bring to the solar PV market.
Automation, transparency transform solar photovoltaic shopping for homeowners, businesses and non-profits.
EnergySage adds value to the transactions by helping educate and shepherd customers along the decision-making process, and presenting quotes (and defining all the factors involved) in a clean, consistent, comparable format.
Instead of having to compare different forms, formulas and variables from different companies, you receive all of the bids in a clear, standard format.
The marketplace’s functionality and usability is light years ahead of other similar sites.
Enable consumers to get multiple bids from installers, view those bids in formats that make it easy to compare various line items in their quotes, and even check out the specs of the solar energy systems already installed in their neighborhood.
