Continuing this month’s celebration of six years of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio, today’s segment features one of the sponsors that make it possible for co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick to bring quality content and news on the Atlanta real estate industry and the city’s special events. On today’s All About Real Estate segment, Carol and Todd are joined by Amy Bryan, Director of Residential Marketing at Jackson EMC.
Founded in 1938, Jackson EMC services over 220,000 customers in the Northeast Georgia area. What sets Jackson EMC apart from other energy suppliers is its commitment to energy-efficiency since its beginning days. Jackson EMC’s Right Choice™ new home program guarantees energy savings, comfort (that each room’s temperature will stay within three degree of the thermostat setting for that zone), energy-efficient construction and a low energy advantage rate. To ensure this, Jackson EMC works with an Atlanta-based national engineering firm and has a hand in the process of floor plan design, building new home communities and quality control tests to make sure that the homes adhere to their standards.
Additionally, Jackson EMC saves Right Choice™ new home customers 5 percent on their energy bills as part of their low energy advantage rate benefit. They achieve this by working with rate design engineers. Not only does this save homeowners money that adds up, but the home has higher resale value if the homeowners decide to sell, since the low energy advantage rate stays with the home. Home buyers looking for builders who use Jackson EMC’s Right Choice™ program can visit www.JacksonEMC.com/Communities to search for builders and homes that are certified Right Choice™ users.
Listeners of this show may recognize Jackson EMC’s sponsor ad in the middle of the segments, starring Ty Pennington of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. To push Jackson EMC’s message about energy-efficient living, they teamed up with Pennington to produce a series of Ty Talks. Lasting around two minutes each, the Ty Talks cover a wide variety of topics, including thermal envelope, LED lighting, smart water heating and more. The talks help home buyers know what to look for in an energy-efficient home while providing engaging, easily digested content. Watch the Ty Talks on Jackson EMC’s YouTube channel.
Amy also shares that this year is Right Choice™’s tenth anniversary of becoming a trademarked program. After 10 years of three-year energy savings and one-year comfort guarantees, their claim rate, she says, is less than half a percent, showing that Right Choice™ customers are happy with their homes.
