Energy Company plants Deeper Roots in Region
Direct Energy is an international business that established its North American corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh last year after acquiring the Pittsburgh-based company Strategic Energy. To further invest in the region where about 230 of its employees work, Direct Energy President Maura Clark says the company is committing $2.5 million in programs that help conserve energy, promote alternative energy and other green initiatives over the next five years. Governor Ed Rendell met with company officials this morning to support the program. Direct Energy sells gas and electricity for commercial, industrial, and governmental use.
