Louisville, KY. – January 30, 2013 – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and sustainability services, announced today it has rebranded its wholly owned subsidiary, Summit Energy. Effective immediately, Summit Energy will now function under the name of Schneider Electric and the Summit Energy name will cease to exist. The legacy Summit Energy business will now reside within the newly created Schneider Electric Professional Services division and will further enhance the company’s global services.
 
“This is an exciting time for our organization and through Schneider Electric’s Professional Services we are uniquely positioned to provide an even deeper level of service to clients around the globe,” said Steve Wilhite, former Summit Energy CEO, now Senior Executive, Professional Services, Schneider Electric.
