TORRANCE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/27/12 -- Verengo Solar, a leading California residential solar installation company, today announced a partnership with 65-year-old Sonoma county based retailer, Friedman's Home Improvement.
The partnership launches Sept 28-30 with Verengo Solar Experts in attendance at all three Friedman's North Bay stores' Home Expo events. Verengo's Solar Experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide solar education to Friedman's customers. The Verengo team will be at the Ukiah Friedman's on Sept. 28th from 10am to 3pm, the Santa Rosa Friedman's on Sept. 29th from 10am - 3pm, and the Sonoma Friedman's on Sept. 30th from 10am - 3pm.
"We are proud to be associated with an iconic local merchant like Friedman's," said Verengo President and Co-Founder Ken Button. "Their company values and history of customer service and quality in the area is unrivaled. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Friedman's."
"Verengo and Friedman's hope to use our partnership to educate Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake county homeowners about the amazing new financial options such as zero down leasing, which have recently changed the face of the home solar industry," said Heather Loeper, Verengo's Director of Business Development.
"Friedman's 'Greener Choice' program was developed to provide healthier products for our customers' home and lifestyle choices as well as to promote sustainability," said Tony Corsberg, VP of Merchandise and Marketing. Our relationship with Verengo Solar will allow us to introduce North Bay residents to a highly respected company which can show local homeowners how they can achieve considerable savings while protecting the environment for future generations."
The arrival of Verengo Solar also sends promising signals to the local job market, as the company reports hiring nearly four hundred employees in 2012, and according to Button plan to add at least that many in 2013.
"Customers are amazed when they find out how affordable solar power has become," added Button. "Solar panel prices have come down dramatically, and Verengo's innovative financing options mean solar power is within reach for virtually anyone interested in reducing their utility bills with clean, green energy from the sun."
