SEATTLE , Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — EnergySavvy announced the general availability of Program Optix, its new software application for utilities running energy efficiency programs, and added two new software clients: the City of San Francisco and the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP-VA) serving the Charlottesville and northern Virginia metropolitan markets.
The City of San Francisco has recently deployed EnergySavvy’s Online Audit to help drive results in its Home Improvement & Performance program.
“EnergySavvy's ability to combine their building science expertise with an intuitive and fun customer interface is unmatched anywhere in the market,” said Reuben Schwartz , the City of San Francisco 's Residential Energy Efficiency Manager. “We are getting terrific feedback from both our expert energy contractors as well as homeowners just learning about energy efficiency.”
The City, by using EnergySavvy, has made it super easy for homeowners to understand their potential for savings, understand energy efficiency upgrades and connect with high quality energy efficiency contractors. The City is also offering incentives for energy efficiency upgrades.
Meanwhile, across the country in Virginia , the LEAP-VA program is accelerating and using EnergySavvy Program Optix.
“LEAP chose EnergySavvy's Optix because it was designed to facilitate cost effective program implementation through keeping all partners and players on task in a user friendly and meaningful way,” said LEAP Executive Director Cynthia Adams . “We need software that is flexible enough to grow with us, but well-tested and quickly deployable. We look forward to working with both Optix and the people who created it.”
LEAP joins three other energy efficiency programs, Clean Energy Works Oregon, Community Power Works (Seattle ) and Utah Home Performance with ENERGY STAR, that already operate with EnergySavvy Program Optix. Through modern customer engagement, enhanced transparency and software automation, Program Optix works to maximize program conversion rates, boost energy savings and overall impact while optimizing administrative costs.
EnergySavvy's software solutions, Program Optix and Online Audit, in conjunction with the program management services offered by its partners, represent a new standard in maximizing the impact of rate and tax payer funds for an industry accustomed to running programs with custom-built Excel spreadsheets, Access databases and Salesforce implementations.
“Utilities running energy efficiency programs are demanding more savings per program dollar and have higher expectations for how those savings are delivered and measured,” said Aaron Goldfeder , CEO of EnergySavvy. “Program Optix will be table stakes for residential efficiency programs coordinating program delivery and measuring performance in real-time.”
EnergySavvy's software powers utility and government energy efficiency programs. Their products, Online Audit and Program Optix, accelerate uptake and guide homeowners through the energy efficiency upgrade process. They enable administrators to create, manage and optimize residential energy efficiency programs.
