DARIEN, Conn., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Soluxe Energy Solutions, the Connecticut based marketer of energy savings solutions, announced the launch of a new website today for both consumers and contractors.
"Homeowners can now see over 20 realistic and affordable solutions that can drop their utility bills 20% or more," said Kelly Kaminski, Soluxe vice president of sales and marketing. "At the same time, our new website helps contractors who meet our tough quality standards check out the products our consumers want and submit an application if they want to work with us."
Soluxe Energy Solutions puts energy consumers together with energy efficiency contractors to reduce heating and cooling bills.
"Energy is the second or third highest cost component in running a home," Kaminski said, "so a savings of 20% can mean $1000 or more in your pocket and a big boost in your home value."
Soluxe's new website, www.SoluxeSavings.com, provides customers with a primer on the most popular energy savings approaches, including rooftop solar, furnace upgrades and conversions from heating oil to gas, insulation, geothermal heat pumps, and micro-cogen.
The company was founded in Darien in 2011 by principles of MXenergy, a large retail distributor of natural gas and electricity that was sold to Constellation/Exelon in July 2011. Soluxe currently markets to customers in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey but plans to make its products available nationwide over the coming months.
Kaminski explained that Soluxe screens contractors for experience and professionalism and monitors them for responsiveness and quality control. "Homeowners often get stuck with unlicensed or uninsured contractors," he explained. "Soluxe makes sure that you get what you pay for and what you need, not what an aggressive salesman tries to push."
The company performs a survey of the consumer's energy and safety needs and evaluates practical solutions for reducing electric bills and bills for heating oil and natural gas, including sealing the building envelope through wall and attic insulation, air duct sealing, and window replacements. The company also evaluates ways of reducing energy consumption through improved efficiency of furnaces and air conditioning units.
"For some customers, one of the quickest bangs for the buck is replacing expensive heating oil furnaces with natural gas furnaces," Kaminski said. "Governor Dannel Malloy of Connecticut recently estimated that over 200,000 homes in Connecticut are within 250 feet of a natural gas distribution line but are still paying for expensive heating oil. With natural gas costs about a third of heating oil costs, homes can instantly see a return on their investment," he added.
The company projects that over the next few years thousands of homes and businesses will turn to cogeneration, also known as combined heating and power. "Cogen units are like furnaces that produce free electricity at the same time they are heating your home," Kaminski said. "Homes in Japan and Germany have embraced cogens but the product is new in the United States and we believe that it offers a cost-effective way to wipe out a home's electric bill," he said.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Soluxe has also offered homeowners back-up generation with both propane and natural gas options. "Believe it or not, some contractors are still cleaning up from the ravages of Hurricane Irene in 2011," Kaminski reported, "so some of our consumers may not hear from our generator contractors for a couple months, but we are determined to help people avoid long term power outages in the future."
Soluxe Energy SAvings is committed to helping homeowners and small business owners lower their utility bills. Headquartered in Darien, CT, the Soluxe Energy Solutions leadership team combines decades of expertise in the energy markets and solar technology. Soluxe Energy Savings prides itself on delivering premium customer service, high quality products, and hassle-free installation. Soluxe Solar aims to help customers save money and save the planet at the same time.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that a...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
