A Nonprofit Energy Marketplace
Connect directly with selected solar, roofing, electrical, heat pump and insulation installers.
A typical energy marketplace sells your information as leads dozens of times, then collects a "small fee" of hundreds of dollars per successful install—often running over $1,000 for larger homes or commercial work. Many also charge on-boarding fees.
You can't choose who receives your information. Marketplaces don't want you making direct contact before placing themselves in the middle. Family-run installers with good local reputations, and nonprofits focused on under-served populations, don't usually buy leads.
EnergyScope chose installers across the United States, giving preference when possible to those who are established, local, well-reviewed, certified with leading manufacturers, and perform their own work. Willingness to pay was immaterial—we are free.
Browse installers, then add selections to your Basket. At Checkout, detail your needs and hit "Send RFPs." Your data goes only where you choose. Installers compete for your business without paying. No broker profits from your transition to clean energy. And you are in the driver's seat from step one.
Give good information in your RFPs when possible, including your estimated annual kWh use and Main Service Panel pictures for solar projects.
Options at checkout will vary depending on installer type chosen (solar, roofing, etc.) Separate checkout for each requirement type makes for a cleaner RFP, communicating to the installers only information that pertains to them.
Installers will respond directly, using their own quote presentation format. Create an account if you wish to reference your past RFPs, or have your contact info saved. But no account is required to use EnergyScope. Including your phone number on RFPs is optional.
Using a desktop will, of course, provide a better navigation experience. On a tablet or phone, you will have to click back to Filter each time you make a selection.
