About Uplight

Creating a more sustainable future.

The future is clean.
The future is bright.

Uplight is the leading provider of end-to-end customer-centric technology solutions dedicated solely to serving the energy ecosystem. More than 80 utilities around the globe use Uplight solutions to power their customer energy experience.

Uplight creates a more sustainable future by empowering customers in a way that the sum is greater than the parts—bringing together all of the pieces of customer energy action management, residential and commercial.

Our Origins

Uplight was established in 2019 by combining the recent acquisitions of EEme, EnergySavvy and FirstFuel with Tendril’s data analytics platform and Simple Energy’s consumer engagement marketplace. Uplight's recent acquisition of Ecotagious further builds upon creating a more effective and personalized energy experience.

Rubicon Technology Partners (RTP), formerly Tendril’s majority shareholder, and AES Corporation (AES), formerly Simple Energy’s largest shareholder, are the major investors for Uplight. Both investors are strategic partners, helping Uplight become an innovative leader in the customer energy management space.
