The Massachusetts Sierra Club and Cambridge, Mass.-based EnergySage, an online marketplace for solar photovoltaic and other clean energy systems, have launched a joint effort designed to help businesses and nonprofits learn about, select and obtain competitive bids for solar and other clean energy technologies.

The EnergySage program, which is accessed through a Sierra Club portal, provides objective, comprehensive information on the operations and benefits of clean energy systems. In addition, the EnergySage Marketplace provides an online comparison-shopping process that secures competitive quotes from pre-screened installers. EnergySage facilitates the choice of system, installer and financing option and accelerates the procurement process.

For properties lacking suitable structures for a solar installation, EnergySage provides the ability to evaluate and shop for a range of clean energy and high-efficiency technologies, such as solar hot water, small wind turbines and ground source heat pumps for space heating and cooling.

The program focuses on businesses, municipalities, religious institutions and other not-for-profit organizations, though homeowners also have access to the same tools and information.
