For Commercial & Industrial

Increasing numbers of commercial and industrial (C&I) businesses are looking to renewable energy as a way to mitigate the threat of rising energy costs and to reach corporate goals related to sustainability and emissions reduction.

Wind and solar energy are uniquely capable of providing a hedge against future costs of power due to the absence of fuel costs. Wind energy is the least cost new generation technology available in the market, and as an on-peak resource, solar is at or approaching wholesale power costs in many parts of the country.

There are three options C&I businesses can consider, depending on their location, financials, and energy usage:

  1. Invest directly in ownership of a wind or solar energy project (either at company sites or from a grid-connected source),
  2. Purchase the physical output from a wind or solar energy project, or
  3. Enter into a financial contract that delivers renewable energy credits and provides a hedge against rising power costs.

Our wind and solar energy experts will be happy to discuss these various options with you to answer any questions and determine what might be the best solution for your needs.
