groSolar Grows by Acquiring Solar Energy Distribution Company

With groSolar’s recently announced acquisition of Energy Outfitters, the company becomes one of the largest solar distribution and installation firms in the U.S., with additional offices in western and eastern Canada.

“The combined assets and expertise of the two companies will enable us to put more solar on more roofs across the U.S. and Canada,” groSolar CEO Jeff Wolfe said. groSolar, based in White River Junction, Vermont, was founded in 1998, by Jeff and Dorothy Wolfe as Global Resource Options; it distributes solar hot water and solar air heating systems in addition to solar electric systems, and was recently recognized as one of the best places to work in Vermont by Vermont Business Magazine. According to Wolfe, groSolar will continue to use the Energy Outfitters brand in their existing market areas, slowly transitioning to the groSolar brand nationally. “Energy Outfitters customers will see a continuation of the strong service culture, which will grow even stronger as we incorporate groSolar’s proven value added distribution expertise,” Wolfe said. With five main points of distribution throughout North America, groSolar is now positioned to serve all customers in any market quickly and effectively.
