Energy and water efficiency is hands-down one of the best investments homeowners, renters, and small business owners can make. Many times efficiency improvements will pay for themselves in less than a year with the energy and water savings they’ll create, while also reducing global carbon emissions to make the world more sustainable. This site is all about helping you (and the world) get there. We train people to green their own homes and small businesses, and to start efficiency related companies.

Our company

Our founder and CEO, Scott Cooney, a five time eco-entrepreneur and author of Build a Green Small Business (McGraw-Hill)

HomeEfficiency.com is a part of a multi-tier sustainability focused company. In addition to this site, it includes:

  • Pono Home, a home efficiency company that has performed services in more than 15,000¬† homes and small businesses, saving customers more than $3.5 million a year on their utility bills. The company’s work has reduced more than 300 million gallons of wasted water per year, along with more than 25 million pounds of carbon pollution (CO2 equivalents).
  • The world’s most well read and respected clean energy news website CleanTechnica, which regularly garners more than 6 million page views per month.

The company’s founder and CEO is Scott Cooney (pictured). Scott’s been there and done it–he doesn’t just talk the talk. He’s personally gotten on ladders, hands/knees, under/behind appliances, and deep into the guts of homes big and small, rich and not-so-rich. He’s personally greened over 3,000 homes, hired and trained more than a dozen technicians to do services, and built the IT infrastructure, contracts, sales platforms, and reporting mechanisms that support it all.
