Soil To Sun Franchise Information:

Thank you for your interest in our franchise system. To us Soil to Sun is more than a business; it is an opportunity to truly help. As citizens in our communities and new parents we feel a strong responsibility to better our lives, our family's lives and the future for those around us whenever possible. Soil to Sun is our opportunity to provide for our families now, while having a real impact on the environment not only locally but nationally and beyond.

Sincerely, Chris and Clint


Soil to Sun was born from need… As individuals and businesses alike looked for what they could do to lower their utility bills, give back to the environment and reduce their carbon footprint, they needed a company to show them where to start. With so much information surrounding green businesses, global warming, and future energy costs, consumers were often overwhelmed. Soil to Sun saw the need for local energy auditing businesses who understand the needs of home owners as well as companies. Soil to Sun's franchisees help make sense of the vast amounts of information and set consumers off on a path to lower bills and provide a warmth in knowing they were "doing their part".

The Beginnings…Soil to Sun's founders understand the path each new prospective franchisee is taking. Chris and Clint were resolute on doing something to help out in their local communities and began to look seriously at energy auditing. After reviewing the current training school offerings they didn't feel they adequately prepared students to both perform a quality, comprehensive inspection or to properly promote a new business. Next they turned to the current franchise offerings within the energy auditing space. Some of the training options were alleviated but they couldn't justify the high cost of entry, exurbanite ongoing fees and the lack of flexibility for franchises to introduce alternate revenue streams.

Chris and Clint wanted to create a better, more complete offering, keeping in mind their top goals. Soil to Sun created a franchise system built on a flexible platform allowing franchisees to generate revenue through multiple revenue streams and keep costs reasonable. To ensure the strongest possible franchise system Soil to Sun continues choosing top franchise partners who have a true caring for their communities and want to give back; knowing those truly passionate who utilize the tools provided by Soil to Sun's complete auditing and marketing systems will undoubtedly be successful.

The Industry…It's not a secret that GREEN IS HOT! The auditing industry is perfectly positioned. The data below is just some of the positive information available on the booming energy auditing industry!

  • 74% of homes were built prior to the first energy efficiency standards established in 1976.
  • The Sierra Club estimates that "those who have retrofits performed on their homes can expect to see a return on investment for residential energy efficiency improvements of 12.5 to 30 percent."
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claims that energy efficient homes "use about 30 percent less energy than they otherwise would and are helping to prevent a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions from entering our air."
  • According to the EPA, the pursuit of energy efficient homes has resulted in saving "Americans an estimated $200 million in energy costs and eliminated nearly 4 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions." The EPA expects these figures to double by 2012.
  • There is only approximately 1 energy auditing company for every 40,000 single-family homes in the US.
