Meet Your New Project Developer, Consultant & EE Expert
Amanda Homa is the lead consultant, project developer and program expert behind Parakeet. Her incredible attention to detail, dedication to her clients, and wealth of knowledge program knowledge produce faster project turn-around times and high-accuracy energy savings estimates.
When energy efficiency projects first started being incentivized and funded by California utilities, they were easy to navigate. But with each year, these projects and programs become more and more complex. Parakeet is dedicated to staying ahead of the curve. It has become more common to run into existing onsite generation (e.g. solar) when auditing a project for potential energy efficiency measures, and Amanda has been recognized as an expert in analyzing and navigating the effects of existing solar generation on potential projects. At times when contractors were ready to give up on such projects, Amanda has been able to step in to successfully develop them and even get them approved for OBF loans and incentives.
While Parakeet handles projects in all non-residential customer sectors, we particularly love working with municipalities and school districts to help these tight-budget customers benefit from energy upgrades!
