A large West Coast electric utility company is branching out into selling more than power, and it chose a Dublin company to spur its spread.
Edison International (NYSE: EIX), a $11.52 billion utility holding company based in Rosemead, California, recently started a new energy management and consulting company called Edison Energy. It plans to keep adding companies as it grows, and Dublin’s Delta Energy was one of its first four acquisitions.
Delta manages energy services for major energy users and is an old-timer in the growing world of energy management, having started nearly 20 years ago. Now it has 40 employees, representing about 20 percent of the employees of Edison Energy.
