“We are always looking for new ways to help our customers save money. The EnergySage Marketplace helps to ensure that our customers have an advocate while shopping for solar and have an opportunity to get the best deal possible,” said Loretta DeGrazia, President & CEO of East Coast Petroleum. Consumers who create an account on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace will receive quotes from multiple, pre-screened high quality solar installers and compare the offers in an apples-to-apples format to select the best offer that meets their specific needs and goals.

The EnergySage Solar Marketplace, a comprehensive consumer destination site for solar PV systems, will serve as the program's engine, helping homeowners, businesses and non-profits to research and obtain quotes for solar power systems, for all financing options, at no cost to them. ``Multiple quotes provide consumers with options including choice of panels, brands, installers and financing options,'' said Vikram Aggarwal, CEO of Energy Sage. EnergySage has received two prestigious SunShot Awards from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop the Solar Marketplace.
