Most auditing companies have been charging $300-$500 for a home audit
New Castle, DE (PRWEB) April 7, 2011
As homeowners move to solar energy systems the first thing they realize is that the systems are not cheap. The price of moving to solar power has significantly been reduced for some Delaware Residents over the past 6 months. Energy Miser (http://www.SaveEnergyDelaware.com) has been providing some clients of Suntricity Power with a low cost NRG TuneUp as a pilot program during late winter. The TuneUp includes a complete home energy audit with both blower door and infrared camera studies. The move to solar power is made more efficient with the coupling of a home Energy Miser TuneUp. The analysis of the homes as a system allows the client to see the overall performance of the property's windows, HVAC systems, doors, air sealing, and insulation levels, as well as isolating any potential health hazards.
Suntricity Power is now proud to announce that this program will be standard with the purchase of any Suntricity Power residential solar system. "Most auditing companies have been charging $300-$500 for a home audit," stated Mark Hald, Suntricity Power. "Energy Miser has been performing the audits and improvements for Suntricity Power, and also qualifying the clients for state rebates to make the home more efficient." "The end result is a client who has a more efficient home, and a much more affordable solar installation," stated Steve Hazewski, Suntricity Power Energy Planner. The end result can be a 40% reduction in solar system purchase price. "The goal at Suntricity Power is to make solar energy systems a more affordable purchase option", said Mark Hald, Suntricity Power.
Energy Miser services include all types of insulation, HVAC, air sealing, and general energy efficient improvements, with services provided state wide. Energy Miser also participates in the Energize Delaware (http://www.EnergizeDelaware.org) rebate program for improvements. This allows an Energy Miser client to qualify for up to $8,250.00 in additional rebates on energy efficiency projects in your home. The Energy Miser and Suntricity Power clients are also able to qualify, in most cases, for the state of Delaware Green Energy Fund Relief Program, to receive your solar rebates on a timely schedule. This can shorten the wait for a rebate from years to months. "The energy audit gives the client a complete picture before they invest in solar, and helps the client see their home as more of an energy system," state James Bowler, Energy Miser BPI Certified Auditor. "In most installations our crews can go in and do some simple air sealing and some practical electric baseload reductions on the home and save 30% homes energy needs", continued Mr. Bowler.
The Energize Delaware Program has rebates at current levels available through March 31st, 2012. The Delaware Green Energy Fund Relief Program has $910,000.00 available for quick rebate payments for DELMARVA Power clients, as of April 5th, 2011. To date Energy Miser has qualified solar clients for over $150,000 of rapid rebates and another $150,000 of Energy Efficiency Rebates. Energy Miser works with clients in Delaware of all Solar Company's and offers a $49.99 full home energy audit to anyone waiting for their rebate who wants to get in the Rapid Rebate Que.
