Verengo Solar's Northeast Sales and Operations Teams Become Part of NRG Home Solar

NRG enhances capabilities in Northeast U.S. with additional sales and operations expertise

Wall, New Jersey – February 3, 2015 – (NYSE: NRG) NRG Home Solar is growing its capabilities by assuming the Northeast sales and operational resources of Verengo Solar, a top-tier provider of residential solar with a proven history of delivering quality operations.


"Increasing our capabilities and bandwidth in the Northeast ó one of the fastest growing areas for residential solar in the U.S. ó is an integral part of our plan to continue our growth towards ultimately becoming the top provider of residential solar in the country," said Kelcy Pegler, Jr., President of NRG Home Solar. "NRG is deeply committed to residential solar and we continue putting the key pieces in place to drive a fantastic customer experience and help homeowners realize the value of their rooftops."

NRG Home Solar is a leader in the residential solar industry in several states across the U.S. The company is a top-tier home solar company with locations in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, California, Massachusetts and Texas. Late last year, NRG Home Solar acquired Pure Energies, a leading online and tele-sales company for residential solar and announced a loan product for the first time to supplement its leasing operations.

"From online and kitchen table sales, to financing and installation, we are a vertically-integrated residential solar company that is committed to winning this space," said Pegler. "Having this experienced and established Northeast team join NRG Home Solar will be a tremendous resource to help us continue serving more and more customers in the region."

The company sees residential solar as the gateway for American consumers to join the growing movement toward a clean energy future. Increasingly, Americans in many states are adopting solar at home as they seek the freedom to make their own clean energy and reduce their electricity bills by capitalizing on the energy generating potential of their own home.
