According to Cape Cod Chamber CEO, Wendy Northcross, the EnergySage platform is “smart, easy and logical. It gives more transparency throughout the solar selection process and offers convenience to the purchaser. We are enthusiastically supporting this platform as a way to generate more business for Cape-based solar installers.”
“Our Chamber is very supportive of distributed renewable energy”, Mrs. Northcross noted, “…and we encourage our members to access all programs available to reduce and save energy, especially solar. We have installed PV panels on our visitor center and have seen for ourselves the savings that are possible.” The solar partnership with EnergySage was brought to the Cape Cod Chamber as part of a national effort to educate business owners about the benefits of solar energy driven by non-profit Chambers for Innovations and Clean Energy (CICE). “The CICE has partnered with EnergySage to promote solar to chambers as a means of reducing often unpredictable energy costs for members and driving local economic development,” said John Gingrich, SVP of Strategic Partnerships at EnergySage. “Solar has been recognized by Fortune 500 companies as an attractive financial investment and we are focused on creating awareness and informing businesses of all sizes about this incredible opportunity,” Gingrich continued.
In addition to offering a valuable, free benefit to members who are installers of solar, this program helps members get a great deal, with prices for solar panel systems on EnergySage often 10-20% lower than average market rates.
There has never been a better time to go solar in Massachusetts. With utility rates in the commonwealth rising at upwards of 30% this winter and solar installation costs falling, now is a great time to contact your local solar installers to determine the feasibility of solar on your property. Businesses going solar in Massachusetts can see their investment paid back often in less than four years and can save thousands on energy costs for years to come! Get started today and get a free instant estimate of your solar savings.
Current or prospective Chamber members who are solar installers and have interest in participating in the program should visit EnergySage for more information and can contact Aaron James (Aaron@energysage.com) to get started on the application process. Participation in the program requires no upfront cost and participating installation companies will enjoy the opportunity to connect with qualified consumers through a simple online platform.
