Local Economic Development
We like to say “all solar development is local” because although we have projects throughout the United States, each and every one makes a real difference in the lives of your constituents. Renewable energy projects bring benefits to communities beyond the local generation of clean, affordable energy. Over the span of their 35+ year operational life, solar and storage projects bring jobs and tax revenue which can significantly improve a county budget and the livelihood of the people it’s designed to support.
Growing a 21st Century Workforce
We’re proud to partner with 20 organizations in our home state of Virginia on progressive workforce development initiatives through SHINE, a public-private partnership dedicated to building innovative solar career pathways. SHINE, which stands for the Solar Hands-On Instructional Network of Excellence, is aligned with the anticipated growth of the solar market in Virginia.
