OneRoof Energy, Choose Energy Announce Marketing Alliance
Leading online energy retailer teams up with top provider of affordable residential solar to offer more choices to homeowners
SAN DIEGO, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — OneRoof Energy, Inc., a complete solar services provider and wholly-owned subsidiary of OneRoof Energy Group, Inc. (TSXV:ON), today announced a marketing alliance with privately held, energy comparison shopping provider, Choose Energy. Choose Energy’s technology offers consumers an easy-to-use, comparison-shopping experience for electricity and natural gas that helps them to save money. The alliance will create an opportunity for OneRoof Energy to broaden its outreach and for Choose Energy to add to its renewable solar energy portfolio. Choose Energy currently serves more than 100,000 customers in 11 deregulated markets across the United States.
“Choose Energy has been a pioneer in building a marketplace for energy, and we’re excited to plug OneRoof Energy’s leading solar lease and services into their platform,” said David Field, president and chief executive officer, OneRoof Energy. “Not only will we be able to fulfill the rapidly growing demand that Choose Energy is generating for solar, we will also further expand our cross-marketing opportunities.”
While the battle between utility companies and distributed solar has become increasingly heated this year, the Choose Energy alliance reflects a growing industry trend where progressive energy companies are beginning to identify market opportunities by working with renewable energy companies. For example, Edison International purchased SoCore Energy, a Chicago company focused on solar energy installations for real estate investment trusts and NextEra Energy acquired New York-based Smart Energy Capital, a solar rooftop developer for commercial buildings.
“Having OneRoof Energy join our roster of solar partners in the Choose Energy retail marketplace will help us achieve our primary goal of allowing consumers to find the best deal when shopping for energy,” said John Tough, the head of operations and business development at Choose Energy. “We take the selection of partners seriously, vetting them carefully so our customers can trust they are getting the best selection of plans and energy sources. We’re excited to continue growing our pipeline for solar with a partner that is bringing a fresh approach to the space.”
