Identifying Energy Waste

Residential and commercial buildings consume over 40 percent of the overall energy usage in the United States. These buildings represent a huge opportunity not only to reduce our nation’s overall energy usage but also to energize economic development. The economic opportunity relates to 71 percent of US homes that were built before 1990. A majority of these homes were built before stricter building codes were enforced. This creates substantial opportunities for retrofitting and upgrading with new products including split system air to air heat exchangers, Low-E window panels, bio-based insulation and other recent technologies yet to become widely known - let alone sourced, cost justified and installed.


Localize Data Points

Using a custom MTC Maps App, when a user logs in it will identify their location with a marker. Onclick opens Energy Star Yardstick app. By completing the Yardstick tool a PDF report is automatically created. Data from that PDF can be pulled which can then be stored as content specific to that geo location. This creates a data base providing the following:

  1. Identify homes with high energy bills.
  2. Plot mapmarker - Open info window.
  3. Enable additional user input.
  4. Identify local energy audit certifiers.
  5. Assist Forms Submission for Incentives.
  6. Provide Data Access to Sponsors.


Alerts to Certified HERS® Raters

Qualified leads create alerts to registered certified professionals who can perform Thermal Analysis, identify locations with radiant energy loss. Homeowners then get Prioritized Recommendations for Energy Efficient Improvements. Resulting certified audit will deliver a road map detailing recommended investment and savings. Cost justification models will then align homeowner with incentives and financing options.


Cooperative Buying Network

The MyTown.Center portal is customized by geo location. The eCommerce portal will present both local and global content with coupons, rebates and other incentives thereby creating another level of leads for specific manufactures, suppliers, contractors and installers, idea being to unify the supply chain reducing cost and waste through cooperative network purchasing.
