On July 21, SunEdison, Inc. announced that it has acquired the UK firm Mark Group, an energy solutions provider and a SunEdison solar sales and installation partner. SunEdison now has a direct sales channel for SunEdison in residential and commercial sales within the UK.
Mark Group targets the UK residential market, offering its approximately two million UK customers energy efficient solar systems, heating systems and insulation products. The company installed the 6 megawatt solar system which is currently the largest installation on a single rooftop in the UK.
Vikas Desai, SunEdison senior vice president of residential and small commercial commented:
“This acquisition will enable SunEdison to offer additional energy solutions, products, and services directly to customers.”
At the beginning of 2015, SunEdison announced a series of solutions to bring solar energy to the residential and commercial sectors in the UK, including the launch of the SunEdison Energy Saver Plan, which makes it possible for homeowners to save up to 15 percent on their energy bills without any upfront costs. Mark Group is currently one of the SunEdison partners in the UK that sells and installs this solution to homeowners.
