Another Philadelphia Export: Local Renewable Energy Company Changes Name And Expands
- re2g, formerly Solardelphia, will now serve other states besides PA, NJ and DE and may even expand beyond solar panels in the future. -
Doylestown, PA - February, 2011 - Over 150 years ago, Philadelphia gave the world Ben Franklin and his famous "kite in a storm" electrical experiment. Now, the city is sending another energy pioneer out into other regions: re2g, a renewable energy company that recently changed its name from Solardelphia to reflect its new ambitions.
"We remain firmly committed to the Philadelphia area, but it's time for cities in other states to get better access to clean, renewable energy," said Jude Webster, re2g's president. "With our company's new name, re2g, we're welcoming all homeowners and businesses from outside Pennsylvania."
Webster explains that the new name also speaks to his company's deep belief in helping customers sell power back to the "grid".
"re2g stands for 'renewable energy to grid'," Webster explained. "When your solar panels generate more energy than you can use, you can sell that energy. That way, your solar panels can pay for themselves over time, or even make you money."
re2g is holding the door open for other forms of renewable energy in the future, but for now, Webster says they'll continue to focus on what made them successful to begin with: providing solar power in a way that's easy to understand and easy to use.
"Solar makes a lot of sense: it's a low-cost, renewable energy source that works on a huge variety of homes and businesses," Webster said. "I can't wait to show that to folks outside of the Philadelphia area."
The firm has more details about its services on its website, re2g.com.
About re2g Since 2001, re2g has deployed over 4.5 MW of Solar PV at over 100 residential and commercial installations in the tri-state area (PA, NJ, and DE). Founded by Jude Webster, one of Pennsylvania's first solar installers, the company uses highly advanced solar panels from SunPower to provide buildings with more power from less space, and offers a 10-year full system warranty on all installations.

"As the person representing the owner, I could tell that re2g knew how to specify and design systems. They also ran cost analyses and payback scenarios for us on a variety of options, which was very helpful. I liked their approach to handling everything, including the paperwork for the government rebates. They take you through the whole process from the beginning to the end. Working with re2g was a good experience and I highly recommend them."
