CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EnergySage, the online marketplace for solar energy systems, today announced a partnership with Staples (SPLS) that makes it easier than ever for Staples customers to install solar on their homes and businesses, while being rewarded for reducing their environmental impact. Consumers who install solar through the Staples-EnergySage Solar Marketplace will receive Staples e-gift cards ranging from $125 to $300 for a residential installation and from $500 to more than $2,500 for commercial installations, depending on the size of the solar panel system installed at their property.
The EnergySage Solar Marketplace, a comprehensive consumer destination site for solar photovoltaics (PV) systems, will serve as the program’s engine, helping homeowners, businesses and non-profits to research solar and obtain multiple, competitive quotes for solar power systems, for all financing options, at no cost to them.
