EnergySage, Inc., and Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy, a national network of local US chambers of commerce, today announced the launch of a partnership to help local chambers of commerce and their member businesses take advantage of cost savings from installing solar energy.
Under the partnership, businesses that are members of a local chamber can use an innovative and user-friendly online solar marketplace at no cost. Users receive quick and easy options for putting solar on their commercial or residential buildings.
The Metro South Chamber of Commerce in Massachusetts is the first local chamber to take advantage of the new partnership.
Through the partnership, chamber members will have access to solar options, an estimate of the costs, savings, and financial options and the ability to include local companies in the price comparisons. Chamber businesses that create a free account on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace will receive quotes from multiple pre-screened and solar installers, easing the process of shopping for the right solar system. EnergySage will make a donation – ranging from $250 for residential systems to up to $5,000 for large commercial systems – to the local chamber of commerce whose members go solar through the EnergySage Marketplace.
Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE) is a national network of local chambers of commerce that recognize the economic development opportunity of clean energy.

Through their clean energy information hub, CICE provides easy access to clean energy information, incentives, best practices, and an opportunity for local chambers to connect with clean energy experts throughout the country.
