E Source, a data firm for the utility industry, has acquired Distributed Energy Financial Group.

DEFG is a utility customer research and advisory firm with expertise in low-income customer experience.

“Our mission is to build a sustainable future in partnership with utilities. One of the critical components of a Sustainable Utility is equity,” says Ted Schultz, CEO of E Source. “Although we’ve been helping utilities with energy equity for several years, bringing in DEFG’s expertise positions E Source as the energy equity leader for utilities. DEFG’s work in prepay, low- and moderate-income customer service, and customer experience has set the standard in our industry. It’s exciting to welcome DEFG to the E Source family.”
