As a large distributor of Smart Thermostats, EFI is at the tip of the spear when it comes to what the homeowner wants and needs. Each year via our pioneering Utility Marketplace technology we deliver 100's of thousands of Smart Thermostats to customers, including a significant portion enrolled in a Demand Response program.
We love seeing great news like this: Better Homes & Gardens has chosen the Google Nest Thermostat as the best overall! In fact, they say "Inexpensive and easy to use, the Google Nest Thermostat is an intelligent choice for your home." see their analysis here
And our data shows that Better Homes & Gardens are on to something. 70 to 80% of the thermostats sold across our 60+ live marketplaces are Google Nest. And based on the reviews from the purchasing customers that appear on the site, the customers agree! Ease of installation, price, and features are the driving factors.
As a note, the beauty of working with EFI, the only non-profit in the Utility Marketplace space is that each year we donate any remaining revenue to Energy Efficiency grants. And to date, we have donated over $1M!
In short, with partners like Google by our side, and our easy-to-use marketplace technology, we see the Smart Thermostat category being a continued driving force for EFI's mission-driven work!
We are very excited to be able to combine the convenience of online shopping with the importance of energy and water efficiency. Customers can have a personalized shopping experience and know they are purchasing high-end products that will help them save energy and water.Steve Z. General Manager
We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer
We’re excited to partner with EFI! Using our existing programs, customers have saved millions of dollars in energy costs over the years. The PPL Marketplace certainly will add to those savings.Mary Ann M. Manager of PPL’s residential EE programs
We worked with EFI to create a product marketplace to offer our customer base an easy to use shopping portal. Our goal this year was to move 500K bulbs across all of our jurisdictions, and the EFI's marketplace and marketing expertise ensured that that number was hit by Q3. These guys know what they are doing, its just that simple.Ron S. Manager – Planning and Evaluation
I am always very happy with your service. I am proud that you want to help us save energy - I bought a ton of light bulbs. Thank you for being one of the few services I use that I can feel good about!Tracey Kitchens - Marketplace Customer
