Asbury Park, NJ, July 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Specialty energy consulting, engineering, and project development firm ENERActive Solutions, LLC announced on July 1, 2014 it has acquired Westridge Energy, LLC of Shenandoah, VA. Westridge Energy is a technology leader in the development and integration of energy metering and monitoring solutions for commercial, industrial, and institutional clients nationwide. This acquisition furthers the capacity of ENERActive’s Virtual Energy Manager (VEM) service, a technology leveraged platform of web-based energy management that perfectly complements ENERActive’s core energy services business. With the close of this acquisition, ENERActive Solutions continues to evolve as one of the industry’s most innovative and comprehensive energy companies; adding advanced management, big data distillation, and machine to machine communication capacity through metering and real-time monitoring technologies to its portfolio. Together, the ENERActive/Westridge synergy will further develop, enhance, and capture VEM potential, which would otherwise not be realized without the acquisition.
Dan Weeden, President and CEO of ENERActive further explained the acquisition stating; “The energy marketplace is witnessing the inevitable trends of machine to machine communication, control, and management that will transform the way efficiency and sustainability services are delivered. The benefits and value in bringing our two companies together are tremendous and unquestionable.” Weeden continued; “While we lead the industry in human capital-based energy engineering and consulting, the integration of technology into our core offerings will enhance both environmental and economic sustainability for our clients and build long-term value for ENERActive.”
“Since our inception, Westridge has brought pragmatic metering and monitoring solutions to companies across the US. Now, with becoming a part of ENERActive, we see an entirely new manner with which to bring value to clients that data alone would never bring,” stated Bob Jennings, President and Founder of Westridge. Mark Baughan, VP of Technology and Operation for the newly acquired division, and Partner in Westridge, added, “Much as hardware needs software to be effective, technology needs service to thrive. This move makes that happen.”
