Best Buy, GE Team on Energy
Best Buy said earlier this week that it has teamed up with GE in order to support its ecomagination Challenge. The two companies will work on bringing to consumer availability two technologies- a Vphase home energy control device and a Suntulit air conditioning control system- that won the Challenge.
As part of the deal, GE Energy Smart LED light bulbs will arrive in some Best Buy stores late this year, with GE's Nucleus Energy Manager, and smart appliances with Brillion technology arriving at Best Buy early next year.
“At Best Buy, we are committed to bringing new technologies to market and we praise GE’s Challenge as a groundbreaking way to accelerate new energy technologies to the marketplace," Neil McPhail, Best Buy's senior vice president of the new business customer solutions group, said as part of the announcement.
