AjO’S ONE PAGE REPORT
AjO’s hallmark product is the One Page Report.
A concise summary of an energy upgrade project, it’s like
an ingredient list.

improvement project. AjO’s One Page Report condenses
the volumes but amply informs various inspection needs
such as for Appraisers and Realtors in valuation.
Full, Solar, and custom reports are also available.
APPRAISED VALUE in FINANCE
Liam and Joy energy upgraded their 1960s ranch style home to
realize 56% savings then added solar to reach net zero.
The result they’re most thrilled about is how Liam’s health has
improved. 75 years of asthma, then, with the upgrades installed
his symptoms were gone. He’s been off medication ever since!
Their AjO report guided the appraiser and lender’s understanding
of the improvements and their benefits to the house and occupants.
APPRAISED VALUE in
When Ivy and Ryan chose a house to buy that needed work,
they wanted to include energy improvements. Their contractor used AjO to describe the work scope which convinced the bank to approve the loan.
From the day they moved in they’ve enjoyed a home that’s more healthy, comfortable and costs less to own.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY as a
AjO supports builders, homeowners and programs that
invest in energy efficiency by affirming the value of their good work
and increasing the visibility of their data and success stories.
Energy efficiency reduces home operating costs, carbon emissions,
and is a distributed resource to our power grid along with
renewables and storage.
Energy efficiency is the least cost source of energy at approximately 30% or less the price of other types. A vital resource; critical to the grid and environment.
AjO’s DATA is HPXML CODED
Home Performance (HP) extensible mark-up language is the data standardization and transfer protocol for the home performance industry.
HPXML reduces costs of data collection and exchange and enables interoperability between software systems. It facilitates accessibility of higher quality data and research.
HPXML is increasingly required by various programs and efficiency stakeholders. Every builder, project and program should use HPXML compliant data tools!

HES certified assessors can use AjO’s data tool to produce
United States Department of Energy’s Home Energy Scores.
HES Reports estimate home energy use, associated costs, and suggest solutions to cost-effectively improve the home's efficiency.

HES raises awareness and delivers transparency in disclosure of
2 key metrics: Energy use and carbon emissions.
SECURE CLOUD STORAGE
Documentation is essential to support valuation, insurance
claims and other financial needs.
AjO provides secure storage for homeowners and
builders to safely maintain their records in one place.
Junk the old jalopy, hop on the
