SANDWICH, Mass., April 22, 2021:
Retail electricity supplier Actual Energy Inc. and solar energy software company SolBid today announced a formal collaboration to offer solar energy to commercial and industrial electricity consumers. The companies’ goal is to optimize cost savings and carbon emissions reduction efforts for customers interested in on-site (“behind-the-meter”) solar generation. SolBid’s solar solutions complement Actual Energy’s data-driven, transparent electricity procurement process.
According to Tony Bianco, Director of Sales and Business Development for Actual Energy: “We supply electricity, but we also supply energy solutions, so there’s synergy between Actual Energy and SolBid. Our customers choose us for our transparency, exceptional service, and sustainability, and this extends to SolBid as well. We regularly see aspirational energy management plans that include on-site solar, but our customers and prospects are often overwhelmed with options. To streamline the process, we will now direct them to SolBid, where their solar energy needs will be analyzed, and a customized plan will be developed and implemented. Our customers deserve the highest level of industry expertise and that is what SolBid delivers.”
“Our team is excited about the synergies between the two companies. Both companies are focused on quality and excellence, so there is a great opportunity for business development,” said Ian Ricci, COO/CTO of SolBid. “SolBid’s technology allows us to easily build accurate solar projects in a matter of minutes. We also make the whole experience of going solar easy for everyone. Actual Energy’s customers are in great hands.”
Mark Finley, CEO of Actual Energy, is excited about the alliance: “Sustainability is a core tenet of ours, so it makes sense to offer solar to our customers—over and above what we have in our generation mix. With SolBid as a trusted partner, we can recommend a product that enhances our own.”
