HOUSTON, April 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Utility Rescue Holdings, Inc., and Gainline Capital Partners (“Gainline”) today announced that Gainline has purchased a majority interest in Flagship Power, one of the fastest-growing electricity companies in Texas.

Founded by Utility Rescue in 2022, Flagship provides competitive electricity service options for consumers and small businesses in the Texas market. The management team of Flagship will remain in place, and Utility Rescue remains a significant shareholder of the company.

“We see this transaction as providing more fuel to fire the growth of Flagship and Utility Rescue’s other brands,” said Tom Schmidt, CEO of Utility Rescue. “We are excited to see to what heights we can now take the Flagship investment with Gainline’s strength behind the company.” 

The partnership is more than just a financial one. “The Utility Rescue white label platform allows partners to generate additional revenue by offering bill negotiation and other services.  We are pleased to be launching “Flagship PLUS,” the bill negotiation service that will be offered to Flagship’s electricity customers,” explained Tammi Stroud, Vice President of Business Development for Utility Rescue. “Our partnership with Flagship will generate additional revenue for both companies and will provide enormous value to Flagship’s customers for years to come.  The beauty of the partnership for Flagship is that even if customers switch electricity providers in the future, they will remain on the Flagship PLUS service as it continues to save them money on other services like insurance or even rooftop solar.”
