'Yacht to be Green' offers free energy audit:

'Yacht to be Green'    .

Everywhere there are new initiatives beginning to help yacht owners to be green. In the USA the Yacht to be Green Consortium is set to offer yachts a free energy audit. In an example, which could well be copied in Australia, the Yacht to be Green™ consortium will launch a new initiative in the coming months that enables a boat owner to implement the safest, most efficient energy plan afloat

They can do this quickly and affordably through a Renewable Energy Specialist program coordinated with more than 175 local riggers and boatyards nationwide and centralized through a single website: http://www.miseagroup.com.

'It’s about small US businesses coming together and helping each other get through a tough economy while simultaneously offering a unique solution to boaters faced with increasing costs of enjoying their time on the water,' said Meghan Matthews, founder of OGM and principal in the MISEA Group.

'This alignment allows us to offer broad energy and safety solutions to our boat builder customers as well as a streamlined business relationship with our wholesale distributors and retailers.'

What is 'Yacht to be Green':
The 'Yacht to be Green Group' identify themselves as a collective initiative of marine businesses that have come together under one banner with a vision to lead the way in environmental efficiency.

They do this by offering sustainable solutions through proven technology that is comprehensive to the leisure sailor on how easy it is to 'green' your yacht and reduce your boats carbon keelprint on the world’s oceans.

The MISEA Group’s Yacht to be Green™ RES program enables boaters to get a custom audit by a local installer certified by the MISEA Group's energy experts. The audit criteria lets boaters know what their energy demands are based on their lifestyle, and also how those demands can be met in the most economical and efficient manner possible.

In the coming weeks, boaters can visit the MISEA Group website (http://www.miseagroup.com) for a list of Yacht to be Green Renewable Energy Specialists and to qualify for a free audit.

Once the audit is complete, the MISEA site will allow them to determine which options best fit their budgets and provides discounts on installation of the MISEA products by a certified local rigger or boatyard.

'This is only the first phase of our vision for the MISEA Group and the Yacht to be Green consortium,' says Matthews. 'One of the inspiring aspects of our industry is the capacity to work together to make a difference.'
