Premium smart home service provider G2i (Booth 1378) has formed a strategic partnership with SunEdison, a leading global solar technology manufacturer and provider of solar energy services, to present a solar energy system “Path to Partnership” commission-based sales and installation platform to the CEDIA channel.
This new referral program has been designed to allow integrators of all types, from single-operators to full service integration providers, to sell and install premium smart home solutions with integrated solar energy systems to their customers.
CEDIA members are invited to participate in the program by moving through a series of stages: Tier 1 Referral Partners, such as real estate agents and AV integrators, will refer business to G2i and get paid when their referral customer purchases a package. Tier 2 Certified Sales Partners become an autonomous sales agent selling G2i automation and security with SunEdison solar packages. This is intended for sales teams that do not want to handle installation and support. Tier 3 requires G2i membership with an exclusive geographical territory. Tier 3 participants sell and install G2i automation and security packages with SunEdison solar packages and generate monthly recurring revenue per customer. This tier is designed for integrators looking for a new business opportunity focused on recurring revenue. Tier 3+ includes G2i membership with SunEdison Installer Certification and adds the ability to install SunEdison solar in an exclusive G2i territory.
Tier 1 participants will submit a brief customer interest and data form to G2i, at which point Tier 2 participants will take that lead through a proposal and closed sale, then handing off the customer to Tier 3 and 3+ for installation and ongoing services.
“As G2i continues to push into the frontier of the sustainable smart home, we are proud to welcome SunEdison as a keystone partner in our vision for the future,” said G2i CEO Reed Stevens. “The G2i Path to Partnership offers customers a break-through sustainable smart home solution, as well as a business platform that fosters the collaboration of adjacent professionals in the consumer environment.”
Through the new partnership G2i subscribers will be able to manage not only their electricity usage, but also the savings they experience with a solar powered home.
