Best Buy Opens Home Energy Learning Centers
November 9th, 2011 by Zachary Shahan
Best Buy has been a green leader for awhile. It has pushed for strong climate change and clean energy legislation, and it has been rolling out more and more clean tech and energy efficiency programs. This all makes me quite happy, since best Buy was probably my favorite shop as a teenager, I’m a clean tech enthusiast (believe it or not), and, whether you like big businesses or not, they are critical to us solving our climate crisis.
Best Buy’s latest green step forward is the launching of Home Energy Learning Centers. From sister site Green Building Elements:
Have you been interested in increasing your home’s energy efficiency, but aren’t sure how to go about doing it? If so, Best Buy has a new in-store and online Home Energy management learning center that can help you decide how to best satisfy your energy efficient needs. The centers provide a myriad of different services, including tools for self-assessments of your home’s energy use, home energy surveys and audits, and product installation.
“Our role is to help consumers make the most of the technology in their lives, and the Home Energy concept is our latest experiment that will demonstrate the knowledge and expertise of our employees, and how our brands and our channels can help consumers understand how to own, use, and maintain energy efficient technologies,” said Neil McPhail the senior vice president of new business customer solutions at Best Buy.
