CakeSystems Software Lands Contract with Clean Energy Works Oregon

Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

Non-profit Clean Energy Works Oregon (CEWO) is a public-private partnership dedicated to reducing energy waste and creating jobs by making home energy upgrades easy and affordable. Homeowners that participate in Clean Energy Works work with certified contractors who conduct a free home energy assessment to pinpoint energy waste and identify needed energy upgrades. After agreeing on a scope of work, homeowners can access financing through local lenders that offer flexible terms and preferred rates. Once energy upgrades are installed a Clean Energy Works Energy Advisor inspects the work to ensure it performs as promised.

CEWOs new partnership with CakeSystems enables CEWO to use the energy data they collect to produce an Energy Performance Score or EPS. The EPS is a miles-per-gallon score for the home that provides a homeowner with a clear indication of their energy and carbon footprint. Tim Miller, CEWOs chief operating officer commented, We are excited to begin offering the Energy Performance Score to our customers. By providing a simple and easy to understand visualization of a home’s energy savings potential, the EPS will be a powerful tool for helping homeowners see the benefits of installing energy upgrades through Clean Energy Works Oregon.

CakeSystems is the only home energy auditing software suite that is fast, accurate and flexible enough to meet the demands of todays marketplace. CakeSystems at its core uses the SIMPLE algorithm developed by nationally recognized energy efficiency expert, Michael Blasnik. CakeSystems core auditing module is the foundation for a customized software suite that fits elegantly into energy efficiency programs to dramatically increase audit-to-retrofit conversion rates. The software is designed to allow home performance contractors to deliver to homeowners a clear and concise description of their homes estimated energy use and carbon footprint.

Energy efficiency programs in Washington State, Virginia, Massachusetts, Alabama, North Dakota, Vermont, Arizona and Oregon are currently using CakeSystems software. Independent energy auditors are also using the software in New Mexico, Maryland, California, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Maine, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida and Illinois.

About Clean Works Energy Oregon

A public-private partnership, Clean Energy Works Oregon is dedicated to creating jobs, saving energy, and accelerating the energy-efficiency market. Now in its fourth year, Clean Energy Works Oregon has grown from a City of Portland pilot to a statewide program operating in 16 Oregon counties. Next year, Clean Energy Works Oregon anticipates launching in two more Oregon communities, making it available to more than 80% of Oregons homeowners.

The organization makes it easy for homeowners to upgrade their homes for energy efficiency by bringing them together with local contractors, lenders, and utilities.

As homeowners sign up for the program and receive financing from participating local lenders, the dollars flow to paychecks for workers who install new insulation, furnaces, heat pumps, hot water systems, and windows. These upgrades not only improve the comfort, affordability, and energy efficiency of homes, they also improve home value. CEWO works closely with Energy Trust of Oregon and local utilities, which contribute cash incentives for every eligible home.
