For a Second Year in a Row Local Home Efficiency Contractor Wins National Recognition


GreenSavers USA, a home energy solutions company with offices in Bend and Portland, was named an ENERGY STAR Century Club Contractor by the U.S. Department of Energy two years in a row. They are one of only two contractors in the state to receive this honor. This award is given to a small selection of companies and organizations nationwide who have improved the energy efficiency of more than one hundred homes in the past year.

“It is such an honor to be named a Century Club award recipient again for 2012.  Last year we maintained our growth and worked harder than ever.” said Robert Hamerly, owner and operator of GreenSavers. “I am proud of our team in both Bend and Portland for working so hard and look forward to helping more homeowners in 2013.”

This award is reserved for companies like GreenSavers who focus their business on a “whole-house” approach to energy efficiency. This means that GreenSavers presents the best solutions for each individual home, and provides comprehensive services—from new heating systems to window replacement—which reduces their client’s energy bills and increases the comfort and value of their home.

Instead of simply focusing on one aspect, like an inefficient furnace or poor insulation in the ceiling, GreenSavers home performance technicians are trained to view a house as a whole system, and to suggest improvements that will work together to give their customers the best results. All GreenSavers technicians are certified through the Building Performance Institute for advanced home energy analysis and installation training.

“Integrating multiple energy efficiency solutions under one roof is not an easy task. But we stay dedicated and true to our mission when we can make the best unbiased recommendations,” said Hamerly.

Within the last few years, financing options, utility rebates and tax credits have made it more attractive and easier for homeowners to make improvements that reduce their energy bills and help the environment.

“Every GreenSavers team member has the drive and passion for helping homeowners and making a difference.” said GreenSavers Community Outreach & Education Director Kendra Van Note. “Everyone at GreenSavers knows we are doing something that is giving back to our community and the environment. This dedication shows in our work.”

GreenSavers is proud to partner with the Energy Trust of Oregon and Clean Energy Works Oregon and is grateful to join the ranks of only 97 other nationally recognized contractors in the ENERGY STAR Century Club.
