NRG Energy scoops up home roof solar company


The CEO of power giant NRG Energy, David Crane, told me earlier this week to expect big things from his company around rooftop solar systems for homes. Now here’s some major news on that front: On Thursday NRG Energy announced that it plans to acquire Roof Diagnostics Solar, the sixth largest residential solar installer in the U.S. with 470 employees. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Based in New Jersey, Roof Diagnostics Solar is currently focused on providing solar installation and financing services to East Coast home owners, but plans to expand its services to the West Coast soon. NRG Energy already has a small but growing residential solar installation and financing business called NRG Residential Solar Solutions. Roof Diagnostics Solar will start operating under the NRG Residential Solar Solutions brand within the next month.
