In 2013, Direct Energy partnered with SolarCity in an effort to help businesses of all sizes become more sustainable. Together, the companies built a dedicated investment fund capable of financing up to $124 million in solar projects for Direct Energy's commercial and industrial partners. The fund enables businesses to pay less than current rates for energy.*
This partnership provides innovative answers for businesses that put solar energy easily within their grasp. Direct Energy and SolarCity have worked on a number of projects with well-known businesses, including one of the country's largest independent food retailers, H-E-B. In July 2015, H-E-B collaborated with Direct Energy Business and SolarCity to activate one of the largest solar installations in Texas.
Direct Energy Business and SolarCity have also partnered on other solar projects with Johns Hopkins Hospital and Whole Foods Market.
