Following a decision not to progress a franchise model, Echo Group will move away from the Jim’s Energy branding.
Echo group aim to always provide the best value to their customers and the move to an ‘in house’ brand will ensure that they can continue to provide industry leading pricing, quality products and service. (worth noting by way of reassurance)
EKO Energy is a well-known brand in the Australian solar industry. Launched in 2007, EKO Energy pioneered the “solar neighbourhoods” (community solar purchasing) approach. In total, over 8,000 solar installations have been installed under EKO Energy across 204 solar neighbourhoods throughout the country. (nice to give some history and credibility but I took out the stuff about Erik)
So what does this mean for you?
- The only change is the name. The terms and conditions of Jim’s Energy contracts are with the parent company ‘Echo Group Corporation’ and hence the contracts remain as is
- Their phone number is now 1300 740 784 or alternatively you can dial direct 03 8560 2677
- Your warranty is unchanged and remains with Echo Group (as it has always been under Jim’s Energy). Echo Group is a leading (top 8) Australian commercial solar installer and a Clean Energy Council approved solar retailer
- The email address of your Renewable Energy Consultant will end with ekoenergy.co
Please note that Jim’s Group HQ may choose to sell the Jim’s Energy brand to another company. If that occurs, this new entity will have no relationship with EKO. So if you want to write a review or recommend friends and family to the same company then please refer to EKO Energy or Echo Group
