On September 14, The Broker Exchange Network, a network of technology companies, announced that its newest site, EnergyBin, would receive a $700,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative. The Energy Department’s award will support EnergyBin’s launch into the solar marketplace.
EnergyBin will use this funding to help launch what it describes as the industry’s first online community that provides members with a seamless method for buying and selling solar components. The site will facilitate the buying and selling of discounted components for residential and commercial solar projects as well as replacement parts for operating systems.
Keith Bluford, Sr. VP of Business Development commented:
“EnergyBin will facilitate the brokering of new, excess, used, refurbished, and vintage solar components. We will use our proven brokerage platform to expand into the solar arena and bring companies who need solar products and components together with companies who want to sell. We’re thrilled to have been selected as an awardee by the SunShot Initiative and look forward to bringing an additional option to the solar component marketplace sooner, given our award.”
