Sungevity Inc., a technology company whose platform enables the sale and installation of solar energy systems to residential and commercial customers, and Just Energy Group Inc., an energy management solutions provider specializing in electricity and natural gas commodities, energy efficiency solutions and renewable energy options, have announced a partnership aimed at accelerating solar adoption in several U.S. solar markets.
Commencing in January 2017, Just Energy will leverage Sungevity’s marketing and sales platform to sell Sungevity energy systems to customers in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. According to the partners, Just Energy services nearly 2 million customers in North America and the U.K. with energy solutions. Meanwhile, Sungevity directly services solar customers across the U.S. and Europe.
“As a proven leader in energy management solutions, we were looking for the best partner to scale our solar offering,” says Deb Merril, president and co-CEO at Just Energy. “Given their platform and approach to customer service, we recognized Sungevity to be the right choice. Just Energy solar customers will immediately benefit from Sungevity’s post-sale management and installation capabilities.”
“At Sungevity, we are focused on strategic growth through our partner eco-system, and our partnership with Just Energy, one of the leading energy management companies, is a natural fit,” says Andrew Birch, Sungevity’s co-founder and CEO. “Just Energy’s ability to deliver proven value to homeowners for 20 years and our best-in-class platform will enable Just Energy to more efficiently scale their solar footprint and offer customers the very best solar experience.”
