MARLBOROUGH, MA, USA, January 17, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Energy Federation, Inc. (EFI), an e-commerce marketplace technology solution provider for utilities, and Liberty Utilities New Hampshire, join forces to uplift low- to moderate-income households by introducing an innovative energy efficiency program. This effort delivers access to sustainable solutions that positively impact utility bills and foster economic empowerment within the community.
By leveraging EFI’s e-commerce marketplace technology solution for utilities and Liberty’s dedication to community welfare, this program aims to make a tangible difference for families and individuals facing financial challenges while driving savings across energy efficiency programs.
The program provides low- to moderate-income customers with free energy-saving kits that include bathroom faucet aerators, kitchen faucet aerators, pipe insulation, window/door seal, door sweep, and ENERGY STAR®-certified thermostats. Instructions explaining what is in the kit and a QR code linking to the utility-branded marketplace provide readily available guidance on how to install and use each product. The kit informs customers about additional energy savings products they would be eligible for through a pop-up marketplace dedicated to this customer segment.
Utility marketplaces are highly effective in accelerating energy efficiency awareness and adoption while positively impacting the customer experience and contributing to energy conservation and sustainability efforts. The program with Liberty New Hampshire targeted specific individuals to receive free ENERGY STAR®-certified thermostats and hot-water-saving showerheads, two of the highest DIY energy-saving measures for gas utility customers. The plug-and-play site allowed customers to easily choose their products at no cost, as well as choose to enroll in an additional weatherization program for their homes.
“At EFI, we believe in driving positive change through accessible solutions. Teaming up with Liberty allows us to extend our mission by empowering low- to moderate-income households with the means to reduce energy costs and embrace sustainability,” said Philip Scarbro, VP of Client Solutions, Energy Federation, Inc.
The initiative aims to create a lasting impact by not only lowering utility bills but also fostering sustainability and promoting environmentally conscious practices within low- to moderate-income neighborhoods.
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
