- Energy conservation education and action steps
- Home energy audits

Their goal is to make it easier for consumers to take action and work with reliable, local and trusted companies.

“Greenleaf certification provides customers with an assurance of value and quality,” says Scott Brown, Managing Partner of GEA. “Our purpose to help homeowners conserve energy, make informed decisions, and partner them with vendors who will deliver workmanship of the highest quality.”
Certified vendors go through an extensive vetting process. Greenleaf considers numerous factors within a chosen company’s business practices, reputation and technical workmanship. They help homeowners secure installations by local contractors with a proven record of excellence. A short list of what factors Greenleaf takes into account for vendor certification and partnerships:
