Arlington-Based Company Expanding Overseas

Courthouse-based Opower is expanding its home energy efficiency business overseas.

The Arlington company announced a partnership today with one of Britain’s largest utility companies. Opower will supply home energy management software to the customers of First Utility, the U.K.’s largest independent energy provider.

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell hailed Opower in a statement announcing the deal.

“In addition to developing our diverse domestic sources of energy, we must learn to use the energy we generate as efficiently as possible,’ McDonnell said. “This innovative Virginia company is leading the way in creating new tools to help us do that. It is one of the many energy businesses located in Virginia contributing to making the Commonwealth ‘The Energy Capital of the East Coast.'”

Opower’s says its software “helps people better understand how they’re using energy in their homes so they can make smart choices and reduce usage.”

The company, which was visited by President Obama last year, has grown from 7 employees to over 200 employees in just two years.
