Savenia Turns 5 – Rates 150,000 Products

We’ve come a long way since launching energy ratings on a handful of small appliances at Strosniders Ace Hardware Store in Bethesda and Silver Spring at the end of 2011.

Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 10.58.46 AMSince then we’ve built a massive database of energy ratings on 150,000 products; appliances, lightbulbs, electronics and more covering over 30 categories. And we’re presenting the data in ways never seen before – pinpointed to every zip code with localized utility cost and environmental impact databases for electricity, natural gas, water, propane and heating oil.

In the process we’ve been able to touch millions of purchasing decision-makers – large and small with a new way to think about buying products that save utility costs and go easy on the environment.

On our 5th birthday – we want to say a big thank you to all of our partners and supporters in Retail, EnterpriseHome and elsewhere for supporting our growth over this period!

Savenia Launches Home Ratings

Savenia Home is a new service aimed at revolutionizing the information people use to evaluate, buy and sell residential homes. Savenia Home Ratings help home buyers and sellers calculate the value of enesavenia_Hor_w_arrow_TM_NEWrgy-saving appliances, lighting and improvements before they buy or sell.

For home buyers, the ratings give the information they need to see behind the purchase price when shopping. For home sellers, the ratings provide a way to quantify and explain valuable upgrades to prospective buyers.

Savenia Home is the next step in our business model of providing relevant energy cost and environmental impact information at key buying and selling inflection points. The idea is to put the information where buyers and sellers are most likely to look – resulting in more informed decisions and value gains. For Retail, Enterprise and now Residential Homes.

We launch Savenia Home with the best in the business…and are proud to be working with Jane Fairweather Real Estate and Sandy Spring Builders – both national leaders in real estate and custom home building. Savenia Home Ratings are being used to guide the historic restoration of the Button Farmhouse in Seneca Creek State Park and the home rating label is now available. We appreciate the support of Bethesda Green and all of our partners and collaborators that continue to propel us further ahead with advice, suggestions and door-opening introductions.
