October 02, 2013 // Franchising.com // SAN FRANCISCO – Solar Universe (www.solaruniverse.com), the leader in solar franchising, today announced the addition of two new franchises, making its debut in New Jersey and adding a location in Long Island, New York. These latest franchises will allow Solar Universe to continue its east coast expansion, reaching more customers than ever before and easily providing a more cost-efficient alternative to traditional electricity.
The opening of these new locations comes fresh off the company’s recent acquisition of Gen110, one of the nation’s leading distributed electricity companies and a pioneer in direct sales, which now provides Solar Universe with a new, low cost way of acquiring customers without expensive marketing campaigns. Solar Universe also recently opened a new online design center to accelerate the solar sales experience, further increasing the company’s impressive growth and adding another way for customers to add solar options to their homes.
"We are excited to bring new solar opportunities to more customers on the east coast," said Joe Bono, CEO and Founder of Solar Universe. "Our expectation is that these two franchises will play key roles for us as we continue to add more residents to our already growing list of customers. We will continue to grow our franchises, thus propelling Solar Universe one step further into one of the fastest-growing industries in America."
In the U.S., a new solar system is installed every four minutes equating to two panels every second and with polls consistently showing that more than 92 percent of Americans support solar, more companies are showing eagerness to take advantage of this growing market [Solar Energy Industries Association].
"Having the tools and assets that Solar Universe provides enables us to strongly compete with any competitor," said Dan Keller, co-operator of the New Jersey franchise. "We are looking forward to being a part of Solar Universe’s network of benefits, allowing us to take our business to new heights."
