"We've always had a two-part mission to help reduce emissions that lead to climate change and build a sustainable Triple Bottom Line company that values people, planet and profit. Over the last few years, as we've had the opportunity to work on bigger projects farther afield with our large industrial and commercial clients, it's been challenging on our resources given the difficult capital markets," SEM president and co-founder Maria Kingery said. "We are enthusiastic about this new partnership, which provides our industrial and large commercial team with a well-established, well-funded platform for growth, as well as complimentary service offerings to deliver even more value for customers. At the same time it allows the residential and small commercial team to focus on serving our individual clients with the utmost care and attention."

With PowerSecure's resources and relationships, this partnership gives our commercial team more opportunity than ever before," SEM CEO and co-founder Bob Kingery said. "And at the same time, we want to grow SEM into a bigger, better version of how we started off. There's a myth that solar power and energy efficiency are out of reach for most homeowners and small businesses. That's not true. It is absolutely achievable, and we can't wait to throw all our effort into helping those types of customers make smart energy choices."
