GAITHERSBURG, USA: Standard Solar Inc., a full-service developer, integrator and installer of solar electric systems for academic, commercial, government and residential customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic, announced Standard Energy Solutions (SES), a new division of the company focusing on energy auditing and performance retrofitting.
SES offers comprehensive building testing, monitoring and modeling services for both residential and commercial energy improvement projects. SES is a BPI Gold Star Accredited contractor and also participates in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and US Department of Energy's Home Performance with Energy Star program.
Energy audits allow customers to know how and where to conserve energy before making larger investments in renewable energy solutions. Energy savings can often be found in proper air sealing, improving insulation, sealing ducts, upgrading heating and cooling systems and installing certified windows and doors.
Making smaller investments such as replacing old appliances and water fixtures, installing new light bulbs and solving moisture condensation problem can also result in energy and cost savings.
"Energy auditing, performance retrofitting and solar energy systems all have the same end goal -- to use less power and to save money. Our goal is to show customers how to use energy responsibly," says SES Division Manager Scott Carr. "It makes common sense to use alternative energy efficiently and an audit service pinpoints how to gain those efficiencies in homes or businesses."
In addition to providing comprehensive audit and retrofitting services, SES also provides the necessary paperwork services, including permits, licenses and inspections. SES also completes the forms to apply for county, state, and federal government-issued grants, rebates, credits, and incentives that help make energy auditing, performance retrofitting and solar energy even more affordable for our customers.
"SES is an exciting addition to Standard Solar. We are focused on helping our customers become more energy independent and performance retrofitting is a great way to achieve that," said Scott Wiater, president, Standard Solar.
