Uplight Merges Six Companies
Justin Segall is Chief Strategy Officer at Uplight.
What did you do this summer? While most of us enjoyed a vacation, Justin Segall spent his summer seemingly like a superhero, accomplishing with his team an amazing blitz of mergers aimed at changing the utility customer experience.
Uplight is new. And bright. Announced in July from the merger of Simple Energy and Tendril, it builds upon combining the recent acquisitions of EEme, EnergySavvy, and FirstFuel. In other words, Justin Segall has been busy!
But there is a singular mission behind these combined companies to accelerate the clean energy ecosystem. He took time from his busy schedule to unravel the how and why behind what Uplight is doing now that it serves some eighty-five utilities in North America. So much accomplished in a short period, that we can’t wait to see where Uplight goes from here.
PUF’s Steve Mitnick: Your companies have become a big amalgam. Explain that. Most important, what drove all you to get together this summer?
Justin Segall: It’s been a busy summer. We announced Uplight in July. It was formed from the merger of Simple Energy and Tendril, building upon acquisitions of EEme, Energy Savvy, and FirstFuel.
