Midstream / Upstream HVAC and Water Heaters

By influencing the flow of goods at the distributor level and addressing the useful life of goods, our award-winning Distributor HVAC and Water Heater programs consistently outperform downstream programs by 900%.

We forge  relationships and trust with top manufactures and more than 60 major distributors. They share details of their business with us so we have a deep understanding of the barriers and risks these partners face. We help design  win-win programs that make it simple (and profitable) for distributors to stock the most effective, energy efficient products which means we can impact 90-98% of the volume of products sold.

It was this simple, yet powerful, idea that lead Energy Solutions to pioneer an upstream approach that has truly transformed the market. And over the more than 20 years of these programs, we’ve helped our partners implement the most effective, reliable upstream program in our industry.

Distributors and Program Administrators love our implementation because the convenient real-time tracking, automated reporting, and large batch submissions make their businesses more efficient. Plus, quick application and validation processes mean incentives are paid within 1-2 weeks.

Our trusted relationships with the top manufacturing partners give the commercial and industrial HVAC and Water Heater programs we implement the leg-up in expanding into new territories.  Our national partners vouch for us and share success stories that make it easier and faster to move into new markets.
