TROY, Mich., May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of ViSole Energy, Inc., a leading solar energy services company, announced today that the organization has changed its name to Empower Energies, Inc. The new name reflects the rapid development of the organization as a leader in Renewable Portfolio Solutions.
"ViSole built its reputation serving the renewable energy needs of large, multi-national organizations such as General Motors," said Empower Energies Chairman David Kay. "Our focus was on specific renewable-generation sources, particularly solar, which accounts for the limitations of the name we've now left behind."
"When I joined ViSole back in November, I realized that we had already outgrown the brand," said Len Jornlin, Empower Energies Chief Executive Officer. "The name had stopped communicating the integrated nature of the value proposition that we provide to our customers and partners and the benefits that we produce on their behalf. So today we introduce a new name, 'Empower Energies,' which better reflects who we are as a company."
The new name reflects the company's current vision and capabilities. Today Empower Energies serves as a trusted advisor to its client base, providing three inter-related offers:
- Commercial-Scale Renewable Energy
- Clean Transport Infrastructure
- Enterprise Energy Management
The company's integrated approach can significantly improve a customer's energy profile by lowering consumption, and therefore costs, while also generating renewable energy on-site. This can include multiple generation sources, such as solar, wind, landfill gas, and biomass, among others.
To reflect this level of integration, as well as the partnering necessary to provide unique customer solutions, the company has also unveiled a new corporate identity concurrent with the name change, including the launch of a new web site: www.EmpowerEnergies.com.
"When we hired Len to be CEO, the Empower Energies name, brand, value, and global relationships came with him," Kay noted. "The fit was perfect."
"Clearly we have what it takes to get large, complex integrated projects completed," Jornlin added. "Together with our trusted partners, we provide a value proposition unlike any other. We believe that is reflected in the new Empower Energies brand. And we're ready to deliver on the promise of renewable energy and energy efficiency for customers around the world."
