Energate Announces Launch of Innovative New Brand

OTTAWA, Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energate Inc., the leading provider of interactive energy management solutions, today announced the launch of its new brand and approach to its corporate communications practices, including a completely new look and state-of-the-art website. The launch coincides with the company's increasing success in the interactive energy management solutions market, and in celebrating ten years of providing the most innovative and cutting-edge reliable technology for utilities and their consumers.

"The timing for the launch of our new brand couldn't have happened at a better time," commented Steve Dodds, Energate's newly appointed Chief Executive Officer. "As a company that is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, it has afforded us time to reflect on our successes, as well as our future—this next decade represents not only a new look, but a renewed outlook and commitment to clients and industry. With exciting new products, new customers, and new goals, our new brand and the depth of its communication practices promises a very bright future for Energate."

The push to expand Energate's communications has come at the request of its valued customers. Thus, to ensure utilities' needs are met to the highest standards, Energate has engaged a national communications firm that will be responsible for managing Energate's brand, including marketing and communications.

"Energate has an extensive solution that 'just works.' I know that is a cliché, but with our solution it is simply true," said Louis Szablya, Energate's EVP of Sales and Marketing. "Energate's Interactive Energy Management Solutions are one of the best kept secrets in the industry and it's time for everyone else to find out. Designed to please both utilities and consumers, Energate's solution allows both to truly focus energy where it counts." As an anecdotal note, Louis added, "Using Consumer Connected Demand Response™ (CCDR), I found out my refrigerator was not operating correctly. After a quick and simple fix its energy consumption dropped dramatically."

Energate's Interactive Energy Management Solution featuring its CCDR platform is available today. To learn more about the company and its solutions and products, visit Energate's new website at www.energateinc.com.
