Distributed Generation

Choosing the right mix of generation sources is critical to your sustainable energy future. We’ll help you tap the right on-site generation to help improve your “triple bottom line”: people, profit and the planet.

Solar Panels
Highly efficient distributed energy generation where you need it most

The most efficient energy source is the one located closest to use. With nearly 1,000 distributed generation projects nationwide — ranging from under 1 MW to nearly 40 MWs — we’ll tailor solar, energy storage and central utility plant solutions to meet your unique business needs and long-term goals.

That means less emissions, less energy use and more reliability for your business operations.



Increased reliability
Extreme weather can impact your access to power. Our distributed generation solutions can serve as backup for grid outages, helping to increase and better protect the reliability of your power when you need it most.


More Savings
Lower grid-sourced energy use, avoid peak demand charges and take advantage of clean energy incentives and tax credits — each helps to lower your costs while increasing your internal rate of return (IRR).


Lower emissions
Solar plus energy storage is the new power couple. We’ll help you understand how your distributed generation investment lowers emissions and demand charges.
