Austin, Texas [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Verde Energy is providing an online source for homeowners and commercial businesses to obtain multiple quotes for installations of solar energy systems — providing multiple bids and high-quality delivery of installations.Verde prequalifies homeowners and businesses through an online assessment system — and then provides qualified leads to local solar contractors throughout the country for installation of the solar systems. Depending on locale, consumers can expect an average of three competitive bids for their installation, all by pre-qualified local companies. Verde is projecting growth of 10,000 solar energy requests in the next 12 months due to high-energy prices, sizable tax benefits (in some states paying for 70% of the system) and the ease of the Internet for obtaining multiple-bid pricing for solar systems — systems that are often the second most expensive purchase a homeowner will make. Verde Energy has received more than 1,000 requests for bids on residential and commercial solar energy installations in less than three months. Recent requests for installations include Reagan Airport in Washington, DC, homeowners throughout the U.S., a 2.7-megawatt (MW) installation in Nevada and a 180,000 sq. ft. hotel in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
