February 19, 2013. GreenWizard - a cloud-based Product Management and project collaboration software that simplifies building efficient, healthy, and sustainable buildings - today announced that it has created a partnership with JustGreen. Through this partnership, JustGreen and GreenWizard will offer a new and efficient application that will provide instant quotes for LEED green power credits using JustGreen's green power calculator.
GreenWizard's Product Management Workflow™ tools are utilized for the research, specification, modeling, documentation and submission of building materials and their associated projects, totaling over $12.9 billion in value. JustGreen is one of the largest green energy providers in North America with green energy investments totaling $70M. JustGreen products provide consumers and businesses with the ability to help them reduce the environmental impact of their everyday energy use through carbon offsets and renewable energy credits. Through this partnership, JustGreen offers a new and unique product to Green Wizard's cadre of construction materials, products and services.
JustGreen and GreenWizard will work to help LEED projects achieve the (EAc6) green power points that offset the energy consumption of a building for up two years- the JustGreen calculator www.justgreenleed.com is an ideal tool for that task.
One immediate benefit of the JustGreen-GreenWizard partnership is facilitation for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community to achieve instant quotes for the purchase of green power, also known as renewable energy credits as well to provide quotes for carbon offsets in anticipation of LEED v4.
"GreenWizard, in collaboration with an industry leader like JustGreen, is promoting powerful tools that simplify the process of obtaining energy related credits for Design and Construction professionals." said GreenWizard's President Jerry Lepore, "This partnership demonstrates both party's continued commitment to simplify the process of green building with a comprehensive solution for project teams:"
