Hancock Software, leading provider of weatherization management solutions, today announced that its Weatherization Program Management solution has been selected as the core technology for the Weatherization Assistance Programs (WAP) by the states of Delaware and Virginia. Hancock’s software enables real-time WAP monitoring and provides instantaneous access to house, retrofit measure, job, production, and energy savings information. It is a powerful tool that standardizes Department of Energy and ARRA reporting.
For both states, the Hancock Software investment is part of the national DOE weatherization campaign to serve low-income clients and reduce their homes’ energy consumption. Using typical energy auditing techniques and priority audits, a home energy analysis can reduce the typical energy bill of a low-income family by up to thirty-five percent*.
