Your employees and customers alike are focused on sustainability, and they want to align with organizations that share their values. A 2021 Meaningful Brands report released by Havas Group found that 73% of global respondents believe that brands must act now for the good of society and the planet. Further, 64% of people, representing a 10-point uptick since 2019, prefer to buy from companies that center both purpose and profit as part of the business strategy.
One simple way to attract, engage, and excite these important stakeholders is by partnering with companies that help them live those values. EnergySage partners with companies, from the Fortune 500 to Main Street, to build employee and customer engagement programs that help them switch to clean energy solutions like solar and heat pumps
What is EnergySage?
EnergySage, a Schneider Electric company, is the nation’s leading residential clean energy marketplace. Customers looking to go solar use EnergySage to shop for products and hire vetted, local installers.
The EnergySage experience is simple and puts customers in control. They answer a few questions about their homes, then receive multiple quotes from trusted rooftop solar installers or community solar providers. EnergySage makes it easy to compare options side-by-side, highlighting the differences between systems, costs, equipment, and installers.
Customers that purchase rooftop solar through EnergySage typically save ~20% compared to similar system quotes they would receive going it alone. That’s because when installers compete for their business, prices are more competitive.
Customers who choose community solar, great for renters or homeowners who aren’t interested in installing solar, save 5-15% annually on electricity bills. EnergySage has over a thousand reviews on Google, Facebook, and other platforms that rave about their free service and unbiased Energy Advisors.
“Partnerships like the one that Schneider has forged with EnergySage are a vital piece of the ecosystem of solutions to address the climate crisis. By enabling greater access to cleaner energy sources like solar, EnergySage offers our employees tangible ways to lower their carbon footprint while reducing their personal energy bills. As an impact company, we are committed to providing access to tools that bring everyone along in the pursuit of a carbon-free energy future.
