PRESS RELEASE: U.S. Green Data Joins the White House-inspired, Industry-led Green Button Initiative
Using U.S. Green Data's innovative platform and Green Button data, homeowners and businesses will soon be able to instantly see energy savings and nationwide energy incentives for every building in America. U.S. Green Data, a leading data provider and aggregator of energy incentives across the U.S., announced today that it has joined the White House-inspired, industry-led Green Button Initiative. The technical standard behind Green Button was developed by industry and facilitated by a public-private partnership--the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP). Based on existing commitments made by private industry, the Green Button will soon cover 22 utilities and electricity suppliers, 31 million households, and over 20% of U.S. homes.
"By integrating Green Button data into our current platform, we are able to instantly provide homeowners and businesses the exact dollar amount and energy efficiency ratio they can save. Americans can finally feel confident as they weigh their options of going 'Green' by knowing the exact incentives they are entitled to, and as a result they are investing in sustainable improvements more than ever before. Coupled with our proprietary database composed of all U.S. incentives, we can help homeowners and businesses access huge savings immediately—all while going green," said Jonathan Doochin, CEO of U.S. Green Data.
