Demand for Innovative New Risk Insurance Programs Drives Energi Expansion

Energi opens three new offices in three months, reinforcing national footprint

PEABODY, Mass. – September 10, 2012 – Energi, a leading developer and underwriter of innovative insurance products, today announced the opening of three new satellite offices across the United States to better serve the company's policyholders and insurance brokers. The new Westport, Connecticut office opened in August; the Carlsbad, California location opened September 1; the Orlando, Florida branch is set to open on Oct. 1. This expansion gives Energi a brick-and-mortar presence which will enable the current Energi distribution, loss prevention and claims teams to work closely with existing and future policyholders.


"These office openings are necessitated by extensive client growth from across the energy sector for our insurance, and risk mitigation products," said Energi CEO Brian K. McCarthy. "The expansion of our on-the-ground resources, from the Southeast to the West Coast, establishes a true coast-to-coast reach and affords us the opportunity to build closer relationships with our customer base in the surrounding territories."

The new offices complement Energi's existing Massachusetts and New Jersey branches and will provide its nationwide network of remote employees with a much needed local presence. The Westport office will feature a National Account division that will service Energi's largest accounts. Energi plans to announce additional satellite office openings throughout the United States and Canada later this year.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
