City of Richland (WA) Joins the New Homes Performance Path Program

Fri November 01, 2019

We'd like to welcome the City of Richland as the latest utility in the Pacific Northwest to implement a performance-based incentive program for residential new construction. Richland joins Snohomish PUD, Clark PUD, Central Electric Co-Op, Pacific Power & Light, Puget Sound Energy, Idaho Power, Benton PUD, Benton REA, and Inland Power in offering builder incentives for achieving specific whole-home energy efficiency targets using a performance-based program template developed by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance(NEEA), the Regional Technical Forum (RTF) and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and implemented within the AXIS platform. Each utility defines their own above-code savings target and incentive structure while homes entered by raters and verifiers into AXIS are automatically routed for third-party QA review, approved, and paid by the respective utilities. This revolutionary approach of leveraging AXIS as the centralized data hub, the participation and administration portal, and the file/field QA platform enables a streamlined and integrated workflow for all stakeholders while providing the Northwest with the visibility into the construction of program homes throughout the region to help influence energy code moving forward.

Announcing DocuSign Integration In AXIS

Thu October 31, 2019

In order to address the growing need for capturing electronic signatures for energy efficiency and "green" program enrollment and participation, we are excited to announce new DocuSign functionality available in the AXIS platform! Initial deployment of DocuSign within AXIS was driven by a project for the Energy Trust of Oregon that required capturing electronic signatures from both home builders and verifiers on a single, auto-populated document generated by AXIS using a workflow trigger. The AXIS DocuSign integration will also be used for routing auto-populated program enrollment agreements for signature in support of Home Innovation Research Labs's National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Program.
