Austin, Texas, April 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CLEAResult, a leader in designing and implementing technology-enabled energy efficiency programs for utilities, is the first to bring a fully-featured Virtual Assessment and Assurance offering to market through a partnership with Streem, an award-winning technology firm and part of the Frontdoor (FTDR:NASDQ) portfolio of brands.
“CLEAResult is thrilled to offer this innovative and easy-to-use platform to our clients at a time when social distancing has disrupted their ability to deliver traditional energy assessments to their commercial and residential customers,” shared CLEAResult CEO Scott Boose. “We are already piloting the offering with several clients and plan to bring on more utilities in the coming weeks.”
The offering goes beyond a simple video call with an energy advisor. Virtual Assessment and Assurance is a live, augmented reality remote-support platform with built-in tools that enable professional energy assessments and post-assessment quality checks to be conducted from a distance.
“Our Virtual Assessment and Assurance products were developed to deliver more choice, control, and convenience to customers,” says Dan Ridings, VP of Virtual Delivery at CLEAResult. “Connecting our experts to utility program stakeholders through Streem’s powerful technology is a real game-changer for delivering utility programs during the COVID-19 constraints and after.”
“Now more than ever, it’s essential that customers have safe access to expert advice and data that can help them control their energy costs and make their dollars go further,” said Ryan Fink, Streem President and Co-founder. “Through our partnership with CLEAResult, Streem is empowering utilities to help consumers make smart decisions on how to improve their home’s energy efficiency. This will no doubt have a positive impact on homeowners as well as the energy efficiency industry now and into the future.”
