Residential customers can use the SaveMoneyCutCarbon platform to easily purchase a wide array of efficiency products for the home that help them save money and reduce their carbon output. Business customers can benefit from consultancy services, including energy efficient audits, investment-ready proposals and product installation services.
“We aim to provide solutions that put more control into the hands of consumers looking for more value, better ways to optimize their energy use, and reduce their overall consumption and costs,” says Joanne Thornton, President of Hudson Energy and Green Star Energy. “We’re responsive to that and we’re very excited to work with such a respected and established partner as SaveMoneyCutCarbon to offer more solutions that deliver what customers have said is important to them.”
