Livermore, CA May 07, 2015

Introducing Smart Energy Management Bundle for Great Consumer Experience

Solar Universe today announced an unprecedented re-launch of its brand as REPOWER by Solar Universe with a new website, innovative brand strategy and an enhanced solution to help consumers generate and manage their own power in a smarter way. In an industry leading move, REPOWER by Solar Universe will now include complementary smart home components with installation bundled into every new solar system purchased company-wide.

"This move has been a long time coming and we could not resist the chance to once again take a leadership position in our industry," said Joe Bono, REPOWER by Solar Universe CEO and founder. "For the last eight years, Solar Universe has served us well, but the natural combination of two important categories, solar and smart home technology, will now enable us to create an even better consumer experience."

Beginning today, all homeowners who purchase a REPOWER Solar System will receive an integrated smart home technology bundle along with installation. The REPOWER Smart Home Kit has been sourced specifically for REPOWER by Solar Universe and includes a solar system compatible smartphone app, temperature monitoring, lighting controls and alerts. For the first time in the history of residential solar, homeowners will be able to generate energy on the outside of their home while creating a more comfortable and efficient living environment inside their home.

"It's been like watching a perfect storm and we just needed to determine when to jump in," said Joe Miller, REPOWER by Solar Universe, executive vice president. "This is a new integrated solar platform that will serve us well today and will allow us to expand to power storage, car chargers and beyond in the future."

The company continues to grow and enhance their products each year and to date has installed over 7,000 solar systems throughout the US and Puerto Rico.

REPOWER by Solar Universe was founded in 2007, and since then has grown to become one of the largest residential solar and smart home integrators in the U.S. With headquarters in Livermore, California, REPOWER by Solar Universe is unique among solar companies as the only major solar provider that offers franchising opportunities.
