Energy company seeks customers
People in green shirts pounding the pavement of Gothenburg represent one of the city’s newest businesses—Energy Pioneer Solutions.
The company offers a program that allows homeowners to pay for energy improvements on monthly utility bills.
What a homeowner saves through a more efficient system is what pays for improvements over a five-year period, according to Scott Kleeb of Hastings, who is one of three founders of the company.
Energy Pioneer Solutions buys and pays for all authorized upgrades/retrofits to properties up front and property owners repay those costs over time on their monthly utility bills.
Payments are sent to company headquarters in Hastings.
Last summer, Kleeb explained the program to the Gothenburg City Council members who agreed to allow the city to bill customers who want, and qualify, for the program.
Marketing director Ryan Hughes and other company employees were in town last week talking to local business owners about the program.
Hughes said the company performs professional energy audits free of charge.
If business and/or home owners are interested in participating in the program, he said the company lines up local contractors to do the work as well as materials.
He said it usually takes less than a day to complete energy-saving improvements which can help save up to 25% on home energy costs.
“Just putting insulation in an attic saves a lot of money,” Hughes said, noting that improvements typically include insulation, doors and heating system repairs.
Energy Pioneer Solutions officials last week sought space for crews and equipment.
“We plan to be here permanently,” he said.
