Declare 2008 as the Year to Take Action Against Energy Waste

    EnWise launches campaign to help Ontarians reduce home energy consumption
    by 50%

    TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Ontarians are being urged to become energy waste
warriors, with EnWise Power Solutions' new campaign launch declaring 2008 as
the year to take action against energy waste.
    "A culture of conversation is paramount today, however, while there has
been a great push for environmental education, much of the actual legwork to
improve our daily ecological footprint has been shouldered onto the consumer,
leaving many to fend for themselves," explains Peter Hwang, Chief Executive
Officer of EnWise. "But all that changes today with our launch of EnWise Power
Solutions. Our new full service program opens up opportunities for consumers
to take real action."
    Offering a one-stop-shop solution, EnWise can help homeowners reduce
their energy consumption at home by up to 50 per cent, while also benefiting
from almost $10,000 in federal and provincial government rebates.

    EnWise offers a smarter way to save with an easy, four-step process:
      -  Homeowners can call 1-888-8-BEWISE or visit to
         book a comprehensive 2-hour educational home energy audit that
         covers every part of the house including the furnace, appliances,
         windows and doors, lighting, insulation, ventilation, and even
         general construction issues

      -  An Energy Auditor (EA) then produces a customized ecoENERGY report
         and recommends the most energy efficient, best-in-class suite of
         brand name products and services

      -  With an action plan that's tailored to the homeowner's needs, EnWise
         then offers its own licensed, reliable installers to implement the
         audit's recommendations

      -  EnWise also offers the most affordable, end-to-end financing options
         so the homeowner can achieve his or her energy conservation goals

    The end result means the homeowner enjoys lower energy bills with
concrete dollar savings, a better quality home, a higher home resale value,
improved comfort, and a more environmentally friendly lifestyle that reduces
greenhouse gas emissions.
    With EnWise, the other great bonus is that homeowners only need to deal
with one company from start to finish when it comes to all of the applicable
government rebates and incentives.
    "Energy conservation is a fundamental and cost effective way for
individuals to play a part in solving the climate crisis," explains Hwang.
"It's a smarter, greener way to save money and save the environment. In their
own personal way, we hope that every Ontarian will declare 2008 as the year to
take action against energy waste."
    The commercial sector in Canada has been privy to these kinds of
energy-efficient installation services for some time now, and EnWise is the
first provider in Ontario bringing these complete one-stop-shop offerings to
the consumer market. EnWise shows homeowners how they can be eco-friendly, not
just why they should be.
    "Our approach is uniquely holistic and our goal is to offer consumers
easy and affordable ways to conserve home energy," says Phil Winters, Chief
Sustainability Officer of EnWise. "Our simple customized solutions offer clear
and concise strategies for the time-strapped homeowner, empowering them to
realize their energy conservation goals faster."
    EnWise's services cover every aspect of the home including heating and
cooling, indoor air quality, weatherization and insulation, roofing, and
solar, wind and geothermal solutions. They also feature tankless water
heaters, duct cleaning services, and offer leading energy-efficient
appliances, windows and doors.
