Climate tech startup Station A launches Clean Energy Grades to instantly generate financial and carbon savings
Station A, the U.S. clean energy marketplace, announced it launched Clean Energy Grades, a new product that instantly tells you the financial return of switching to clean energy.
With Clean Energy Grades, you simply need to enter an address for a building that is over 10K sq feet, and Station A's platform instantly provides financial breakdowns of potential savings from clean energy installations, along with a projected payback period.
Through Station A's clean energy procurement platform, property managers and owners can then receive competitive quotes from more than 2,000 qualified providers, and track their journey to zero-emissions. To date, Station A's platform has already identified more than $135 billion in savings for potential clean energy projects that can be financed with no money down.
Kevin Berkemeyer, CEO, Station A: "Most people think that you need to invest significant amounts of time and money to go green. But with significant breakthroughs in clean energy hardware, state incentives, and Station A's innovations in grading financial return and simplifying the procurement process, there's never been a better time to be a clean energy customer."
In the U.S. alone, 40% of carbon emissions come from residential and commercial buildings. In addition to massively contributing to climate change, these buildings also represent a major opportunity for the growing market of net-zero energy buildings, a market that is expected to reach $140 billion by 2028 according to a new study by Polaris Market Research.
In the state of California alone, Station A has already identified almost 6,000 buildings with coveted A+ grades, each with at least $1 million in lifetime savings. Collectively these properties are sitting on almost $13 billion in unrealized financial value from electricity bill savings that can be financed with no money down.
To date, Station A has raised $5 million in funding from Renewal Funds, Schneider Electric Ventures, Powerhouse Ventures, Southern Company, and several clean energy Angel Investors.
