Real estate portal Estately has added ClearlyEnergy’s Utility Costs Platform to its search features. “We know prospective homebuyers are eager for more information on homes’ energy footprint, and we’re happy ClearlyEnergy and Estately were able to provide this transparency,”said Véronique Bugnion, co-founder of ClearlyEnergy. “Energy costs are typically the second largest cost of homeownership or rental, and it was about time buyers and renters saw that information.”
