GE Home & Business Solutions was a division of General Electric from 2007 to 2014. In 2013 it was renamed GE Appliances & Lighting.


On 1 August 2007 GE announced the formation of GE Enterprise Solutions, consisting of the various GE Industrial businesses other than GE Consumer & Industrial, as well as GE Power Quality. Charlene T. Begley was named president and CEO of the division.[1]


GE Home & Business Solutions had three primary sub businesses:

GE Intelligent Platforms was moved under GE's Energy Management business in 2012, leaving just Appliances and Lighting.

Following the sale of GE Appliances to Electrolux in September 2014,[2] GE Appliances & Lighting ceased to exist. As of October 1, 2015, this transaction has not closed due to US antitrust action. As of 15 September 2014, GE Lighting has been moved under the 'Growth and Innovation' division of GE.
