enXco becomes EDF Renewable Energy

EDF Renewable Energy leverages the knowledge, strength and stability of the EDF group, the leading electricity company in the world.

SAN DIEGO, California (August 20, 2012) – enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles Company, announces a name change to EDF Renewable Energy. The new brand name is a natural progression of the integration process with the EDF group, the leading electricity company in the world.


Ten years ago, EDF Energies Nouvelles, the EDF subsidiary specializing in renewable energy, acquired enXco, initiating tremendous growth in the company throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. At the time of the acquisition, the EDF group (Electricit de France) owned 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles. EDF acquired the remaining 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles in August 2011, and enXco is now fully integrated within the Group under a new name, EDF Renewable Energy.

EDF Renewable Energy is maintaining the delineation between the Development group and the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) group - formerly enXco Service Corporation - by changing the name of the O&M group to EDF Renewable Services. The services division will continue to perform all required O&M for wind and solar energy projects. With more than 6 gigawatts of power under contract, EDF Renewable Services is the leading provider of third-party operations and maintenance services in North America.

The closer alignment to the EDF group allows EDF Renewable Energy and EDF Renewable Services to capitalize on shared knowledge, financial strength and long-term stability.

"EDF Renewable Energy is an innovative company with dedicated and passionate employees, and we're proud of our 25 years of expertise in the renewable industry, covering all range of services from project development, management to operations and maintenance," said President and CEO Tristan Grimbert. "The full integration with EDF allows for increased global backing, new financial and technical resources, and the stability to expand our business, while maintaining our entrepreneurial spirit. We will continue to work collaboratively with our customers and clients as a local partner, ensuring mutual respect and accountability to deliver the best projects and service possible. The deeper affiliation with EDF will create a stronger U.S. subsidiary poised to meet future challenges."

EDF Renewable Energy specializes in wind, solar, biomass and biogas project design, development, construction, operations and maintenance. It develops, builds, owns and operates renewable energy projects in the U.S. for its own account as well as for third party ownership.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
