A UK energy solutions provider has been snapped up by US renewable company SunEdison.

Leicester-based Mark Group offers solar, heating and insulation technologies to around two million customers in the UK.

The deal will allow SunEdison to offer additional energy products and services directly to consumers, the company said.

Vikas Desai, SunEdison residential and small commercial Senior Vice President said: “By establishing a direct sales channel in the UK, we are augmenting our existing installation partner network to meet the growing demand for solar in this market.”

Earlier this year, the company raised £84.6 million for green projects in the UK and launched a competition to find Britain’s “most solar savvy street”.
