Atlanta, December 9, 2010 — Florida Public Utilities Co. and Central Florida Gas have selected Apogee Interactive’s suite of Web-based energy tools to help their customers evaluate home energy use and find ways to save on their energy costs.
Atlanta-based Apogee currently provides online home energy audits, energy calculators and energy education to more than 500 energy utilities nationwide.
FPU and CFG customers can soon access a self-service home energy audit, a comprehensive residential energy library and a special interactive Kids Korner section on www.fpuc.com to discover the most effective steps to reduce their energy consumption and cost.
The flagship tool within Apogee’s HomeEnergySuite is the fast, easy-to-use HomeEnergyCalculator, which has been customized to reflect the respective service area’s home construction standards, weather zones and common home energy equipment.
In addition, energy conservation representatives will be trained on Apogee’s corresponding home energy audit platform for in-home audits, called EnergyInsights.
This assures customers receive the highest accuracy in evaluating their home’s energy use and savings alternatives, whether they choose to use the self-service tool or request a free in-home audit from FPU and CFG.
EnergyInsights is one of only a few home energy audit platforms to pass a battery of stringent tests conducted by the Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Lab for analytical accuracy and certification by RESNET as a home energy rating software tool.
