SoCore Energy Becomes an Engie Company

April 16, 2018

Today, SoCore becomes part of ENGIE North America Inc. and we join a unique and growing family of renewable energy businesses that are collectively helping customers large and small across North America improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon and lower costs. Founded in Chicago ten years ago, SoCore has been at the forefront of the solar and renewable revolution in the U.S. From our earliest days installing commercial rooftop solar to the development of industry-leading distributed solar installations for electric cooperatives and the installation of some the largest battery storage projects in the nation, SoCore has been an integral part of an energy transition decade.

As part of ENGIE, the team at SoCore will bring its unrivaled expertise and track record in solar and storage development to ENGIE’s other retail, wind, and biomass offerings in the U.S. to meet customers’ renewable energy procurement goals more comprehensively than ever before.

With SoCore, ENGIE is investing in an experienced, accomplished development team, and we look forward to working with this team to accelerate the expansion of our renewables presence within the United States and meet customers’ renewable energy procurement goals much more comprehensively than before.

SoCore will continue to be based in Chicago, supporting and growing its ongoing operating and development sites in some 25 states nationwide. Our talents, combined with the scale and experience of ENGIE will enable accelerated growth in the business, as well as more solutions for our customers and the communities they serve.

As we have always said, “When your business revolves around the sun, the sky’s the limit”. With a decade under our belt already and a new and growing family at ENGIE, all of us at SoCore look forward to the next phase of our journey.
