Pro Energy Consultants Launches First National Brand in Residential Energy Auditing
CLEVELAND – October 28, 2008 – Arizona-based PEC Holdings, LLC has joined forces with Cleveland-based Home Energy Consultants to form Pro Energy Consultants, the first nationally franchised home energy auditing company. Pro Energy will provide homeowners with standardized, comprehensive energy audits designed to maximize the home’s energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.
“With household budgets tightening, energy costs soaring, and environmental awareness on the rise, residential energy audits are exploding onto the national small business landscape,” said Pro Energy Consultants Managing Partner Kris Simonich.
According to Simonich, joining an experienced franchise operations company like PEC Holdings with one of the most experienced energy auditing companies in the nation was a natural fit.
“There is a real need for a professional, comprehensive, standardized energy auditing that is not currently being met,” said Simonich. “Our vision is to become one of the nation’s most prominent educators of energy auditing professionals.”
Simonich says there is incredible demand for this service but little certification and even less regulation. By combining the expertise of both companies— PEC Holding’s extensive business and operational experience with Home Energy Consultants unique training techniques and professional auditing methodologies—Pro Energy Consultants is the nation’s only company with more than a decade of energy auditing and franchising experience.
“Pro Energy Consultants is in a unique position to offer its affiliates the chance to take proven business and marketing strategies to a fledgling industry with very little competition,” said Simonich.
Simonich, with two other managing partners, comprise a team of nationally renowned energy and franchise experts with more than 13 years of residential energy auditing and franchising experience. Given the current economic conditions, Simonich feels Pro Energy represents the ideal “green franchise” opportunity because it provides interested franchisees with a low-cost of entry.
Pro Energy Consultants is currently seeking affiliate auditors nationwide. The total initial investment, including the franchisee fee, is $35,000.
“Energy auditing is a real home-based opportunity for budding entrepreneurs with a passion for the environment and for customer service,” said Simonich. “For many fearful for their jobs or looking to establish a significant second income, energy auditing can help some realize their dream of owning a low cost, highly profitable business.”
Added Simonich, “It’s a great chance to fire your boss and do something meaningful and lucrative for a living.”
