Station A’s mission is to transition the world to 100% clean energy by helping make clean energy cheaper, more accessible, and more transparent to everyone.
As part of our mission, the Station A Marketplace for clean energy projects is where buyers can conveniently source detailed quotes from our trusted network of more than 2,000 providers through a streamlined, transparent and digital RFP process.
A buyer’s project is published for any qualified provider on the Station A Marketplace to view, download detailed disclosures, ask questions and submit proposals.
⚙️ How clean energy is procured today
55% of the total price of a clean energy project is non-hardware related soft costs
Procuring clean energy today is typically a time-consuming affair with lots of back-and-forth between buyers and providers. Buyers spend significant time researching if clean energy is a good fit for their buildings or sites and once they decide that it might be, invest in a lengthy process to solicit and evaluate proposals from a diversity of clean energy providers from installers to hardware providers to financiers. This inefficient process results in significant cost for providers, higher prices for buyers and fewer clean energy projects initiated.
🌟 Station A’s simple and transparent approach
Backed by our trusted provider network, Station A is streamlining, standardizing, and digitizing the process of buying clean energy
Free clean energy scores
A buyer can start evaluating their single building or entire portfolio by entering their building addresses on stationa.com and getting their free clean energy score, which provides an estimate of whether or not a building is likely to save money by switching to clean energy based on everything from rooftop area to the cost of electricity to the weather. Station A has identified an amazing 600,000 commercial buildings in North America where a clean energy project nets a positive return on investment.
First-of-kind digital RFPs
Once a buyer is ready to list their project, we onboard them to create a digital RFP that we publish to our trusted provider network. Any interested providers has an opportunity to learn more about the project, download additional disclosures and request more information from the buyer. The entire process from onboarding to term sheet is estimated to take two months to complete.
The Station A Marketplace process attempts to reduce unnecessary steps in the buying process and all steps are communicated to both buyers and providers.
