Today we announced exciting new results from a 2nd pilot study assessing the impact of Savenia Solar Ratings on prospective solar customers.
The pilot study demonstrated that independent solar ratings from Savenia, when presented alongside a standard solar agreement to prospective buyers, reduced some of the most common concerns buyers face around system costs and fees when making the decision to go solar. Full release is here.
This builds on the results from Savenia’s first pilot study, which demonstrated Savenia Solar Ratngs increased interest in purchasing a new solar system and increased trust in solar proposals.
Savenia Solar Ratings demonstrate the power of certification effects, the well-known impacts of 3rd party marks that signal trust, quality and often support higher pricing on associated products and services.
Savenia is now signing up partners nationwide to bring the power of Savenia Solar Ratings into the proposal process. Interested partners can request more information at http://saveniahome.com/channel-partner/.
Today we achieved re-certification as a B Corporation (BCorp), a proud designation we’ve held since 2011. This was accomplished after rigorous documentation reviews and an onsite audit by B Lab HQ staff to verify our environmental policies and other business practices.

We were proud to be awarded the 2015 ‘Best for Environment’ award by B Lab, and continue to believe strongly that B Corps represent a better way to do business – by using business as a force for good.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,400 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

“Having the confidence to be transparent in your environmental impact and policies not only forces you to be rigorous internally,” said John Jabara of Savenia Labs, “but the disclosure of this information educates and motivates others (like suppliers, customers and competitors) to take action. This creates a positive reinforcement loop for change.”
