EnergySage has released the EnergySage Solar Marketplace, an online platform for researching and shopping for solar PV systems for homeowners, businesses and nonprofits.
Through automation and standardization, the EnergySage Solar Marketplace is designed to add simplicity and transparency to the complex solar shopping experience, allowing consumers to easily make purchase decisions that maximize the value they will receive, the company says.
In the marketplace, consumers solicit and receive multiple quotes from a pre-screened network of solar installation providers. According to the company, by reducing the soft costs associated with solar sales and marketing efforts, the Solar Marketplace delivers financial benefits to both consumers and solar installers and financiers, while expanding the market through increased demand for these systems.
‘Providers are spending an incredible amount of time and money in their efforts to acquire new customers. EnergySage drives these costs down by facilitating a more efficient sales process,’ says John Gingrich, head of corporate development at EnergySage.
