Serial entrepreneur Greg Butterfield and Smart Energy Today chief sales and marketing officer and strategist Jonathan Gibbs have launched Lumio, a U.S. residential solar provider that has combined five regional U.S. residential solar providers: Atlantic Key Energy, Deca Solar, Lift Energy, Our World Energy and Smart Energy Today.
“I’ve seen the future and it’s led by those willing to hyper-focus on creating delight at every customer touchpoint,” said Butterfield. “Jonathan and our Lumio team are driven by this purpose. We know that when we lead with customer delight, the success and longevity will follow.”
Each company leads their respective markets in customer satisfaction and time-to-install, Lumio said. In a period in which the solar industry’s average install time is 60 to 90 days, Lumio’s average install time, with high customer satisfaction, is less than 30 days. In some cases, it is less than 10 days.
“Speed is the currency of solar,” according to CEO Gibbs. “The future leaders of this industry will ultimately find a way to reliably complete installs in seven days or less while elevating the customer experience.”
As of its formal launch, Lumio already had a 12-month run rate of more than $1billion in gross sales, and more than 3,500 team members across 37 states.
