National Grid Recognized for Online Solar Panel Marketplace
Council member National Grid was recently recognized for its online marketplace that simplifies solar energy installation across multiple states, including some in New England.
The program, the Smart Energy Consumer Collaborative (SECC), was awarded a 2020 Best Practices Award by Smart Energy Consumer Collaborative. SECC educates customers on not only the benefits of solar power in their homes, but also the resources available through National Grid to reduce energy costs and improve sustainability. The program is conducted entirely online, providing new access and transparency to customers looking to investigate, and possibly convert to, solar energy. SECC was initiated in 2016 across Rhode Island, and was expanded in 2018 to upstate New York. SECC is expected to arrive in Massachusetts soon.
“I am proud that our marketplace proactively engages National Grid customers to help them better understand their home’s solar potential by providing them with the information and tools needed to make an educated decision,” said Gregory Knight, Chief Customer Officer at National Grid. “When customers have the knowledge and confidence to move forward in their solar shopping journey, they are dramatically more likely to embrace clean energy technologies and contribute to a decarbonized energy future.”
The Council congratulates National Grid on this award recognizing its efforts to increase access and information on the transition to more sustainable energy sources. Read more in MarketWatch.
