Sponsored by

Petaluma, Calif., February 9, 2010 — yoUtilBill LLC launched a service in Sonoma County to help homeowners make the energy saving choices and save up to thousands of dollars on their PG&E bills.

yoUtilBill's Residential Energy Management Service provides qualifying homeowners with the end-to-end service helping them make decisions on reducing energy consumption while minimizing out-of-pocket spending.

Reducing home energy use and lower bills is complex, requiring expertise in a wide range of areas: house and equipment energy consumption, economics, regulations, options in energy sources, government incentives and rebates and other factors.

REMS provides homeowners with a one-stop-shop for evaluating their expenditures, starting with an initial, one-hour diagnostic of their home's energy consumption and detailed recommendations for balancing energy and cost savings, to assistance with filling out paperwork, and identifying and engaging local contractors. The yoUtilBill service also offers ongoing monitoring and spending management.

Customers with monthly utility bills of over $300 qualify for a free diagnostic/audit, while others with lower bills are asked to pay a nominal $200 fee.

The company uses energy management software that analyzes energy consumption and spending against alternative solutions and products to find the ideal money- and energy-saving approach for each homeowner.

yoUtilBill is a joint venture of New Energy Investment Partners (NEIP) and Building Solutions. NEIP is an investment business focused on highly scalable and innovative business propositions in energy. Building Solutions is the leading professional home performance contractor in the US, and has a deep understanding of structural energy consumption.

yoUtilBill has extensive experience in energy management, and is able to offer its unique set of services as it possesses a unique combination of skills; most saliently including know-how in structural engineering, and in energy and consumer economics acquired through thousands of household retrofits.
