Loughborough, UK (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
Homeowners who are keen to install renewable energy in their homes have received a boost with the launch of http://www.GreenEnergy360.org , a website specifically designed to help them make the right energy choices.
As well as a wealth of renewable energy information, the site includes a unique interactive calculator which helps users to quickly determine the renewable energy source which is most appropriate for their home.
The calculator generates a tailored report based on the home owner's postcode, property information, and lifestyle details. It helps people to understand capital costs, CO2 savings and the return on investment they can expect.
http://www.GreenEnergy360.org is a comprehensive information website for those considering renewable energy in their homes. The aim of the site is to be able to deliver information to meet the needs of homeowners, whatever the state of their own understanding of renewable energy. The site is a completely free resource and designed to be the single most comprehensive source of information on renewable energy for the home available on the web.
Central to the website's ability to give home owners useful advice is a module which takes site visitors through a simple questionnaire designed to identify the renewable energy installation which is most appropriate for their needs. Developed in association with Loughborough University's Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), the questionnaire is unique in cutting through the technical details and meeting the needs of those who are keen to find out whether renewable energy will be a good choice for their home or small business. The questionnaire provides its conclusions graphically, providing the user with likely capital cost and CO2 savings, together with the energy yield and return on investment they can expect from a particular renewable energy choice.
Having provided users with the information they need, the site can go a step further and, if requested, can refer the user to a selection of local installers who can quote for the required work.
Website founder Simon Calvert is enthusiastic, saying; "The assessment programme provides exactly the information needed to make informed decisions about your home's renewable energy possibilities. There's no need to drag in a troupe of unfamiliar installers and other experts whose principal interest may be in selling their preferred solution. Having assessed their options independently and objectively first, site users will be able to contact one of our quality-assured installers knowing exactly what they want."
