In just 18 months, Pro Energy Consultants has awarded more than 50 franchises across the U.S. It now has a presence in 30 states and remains the only national energy auditing franchise.
Cleveland, OH, June 03, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Despite a down economy, Pro Energy Consultants has grown to 59 franchises in 30 states in just 18 months. The energy auditing company, founded in September 2008, began awarding franchises the following month. The franchise fee is $29,900, with a total investment around $45,000.
Pro Energy Consultants, the only national energy auditing company, was recently recognized as No. 14 on the RedHotFranchises.com 2010 Hot 100 Franchise List and has been featured in several national and local news outlets. The company recently added franchises in the Atlanta, St. Paul/Minneapolis, Boulder (Colo.), Des Moines, Medford (Ore.), Nashville, and Cleveland markets.
"We developed our Pro Energy franchise based on a proven, time-tested model for conducting energy audits, and combined it with our expertise in franchising, to create an in-demand, solid business opportunity," said Pro Energy Consultants Managing Partner Derek Sola. "The current high-energy costs and 'going green' movement have just accelerated our growth."
As an unbiased, third party, Pro Energy Consultants is focused on diagnosing building performance issues -- namely comfort, excessive energy usage and poor indoor air quality issues -- for homes and light commercial buildings. The company, now backed by more than 11,000 energy audits and 15 years of experience, also offers a guarantee. If, at the end of the test, customers don't feel they've received valuable information about their home or business office, then the energy audit is free. To successfully diagnose home performance issues, the company's energy auditors first undergo extensive training from its building performance and business experts, followed by eight weeks of continuing education training.
A detailed, customized report with prioritized recommendations for maximizing the energy efficiency and comfort of the home or building is created within days of the energy audit.
