DARIEN, Conn., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Soluxe Energy Solutions, the Connecticut based marketer of energy savings solutions, announced the launch of a new website today for both consumers and contractors.
"Homeowners can now see over 20 realistic and affordable solutions that can drop their utility bills 20% or more," said Kelly Kaminski, Soluxe vice president of sales and marketing. "At the same time, our new website helps contractors who meet our tough quality standards check out the products our consumers want and submit an application if they want to work with us."
Soluxe Energy Solutions puts energy consumers together with energy efficiency contractors to reduce heating and cooling bills.
"Energy is the second or third highest cost component in running a home," Kaminski said, "so a savings of 20% can mean $1000 or more in your pocket and a big boost in your home value."
Soluxe's new website, www.SoluxeSavings.com, provides customers with a primer on the most popular energy savings approaches, including rooftop solar, furnace upgrades and conversions from heating oil to gas, insulation, geothermal heat pumps, and micro-cogen.
The company was founded in Darien in 2011 by principles of MXenergy, a large retail distributor of natural gas and electricity that was sold to Constellation/Exelon in July 2011. Soluxe currently markets to customers in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey but plans to make its products available nationwide over the coming months.
Kaminski explained that Soluxe screens contractors for experience and professionalism and monitors them for responsiveness and quality control. "Homeowners often get stuck with unlicensed or uninsured contractors," he explained. "Soluxe makes sure that you get what you pay for and what you need, not what an aggressive salesman tries to push."
The company performs a survey of the consumer's energy and safety needs and evaluates practical solutions for reducing electric bills and bills for heating oil and natural gas, including sealing the building envelope through wall and attic insulation, air duct sealing, and window replacements. The company also evaluates ways of reducing energy consumption through improved efficiency of furnaces and air conditioning units.
"For some customers, one of the quickest bangs for the buck is replacing expensive heating oil furnaces with natural gas furnaces," Kaminski said. "Governor Dannel Malloy of Connecticut recently estimated that over 200,000 homes in Connecticut are within 250 feet of a natural gas distribution line but are still paying for expensive heating oil. With natural gas costs about a third of heating oil costs, homes can instantly see a return on their investment," he added.
The company projects that over the next few years thousands of homes and businesses will turn to cogeneration, also known as combined heating and power. "Cogen units are like furnaces that produce free electricity at the same time they are heating your home," Kaminski said. "Homes in Japan and Germany have embraced cogens but the product is new in the United States and we believe that it offers a cost-effective way to wipe out a home's electric bill," he said.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Soluxe has also offered homeowners back-up generation with both propane and natural gas options. "Believe it or not, some contractors are still cleaning up from the ravages of Hurricane Irene in 2011," Kaminski reported, "so some of our consumers may not hear from our generator contractors for a couple months, but we are determined to help people avoid long term power outages in the future."
Soluxe Energy SAvings is committed to helping homeowners and small business owners lower their utility bills. Headquartered in Darien, CT, the Soluxe Energy Solutions leadership team combines decades of expertise in the energy markets and solar technology. Soluxe Energy Savings prides itself on delivering premium customer service, high quality products, and hassle-free installation. Soluxe Solar aims to help customers save money and save the planet at the same time.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
