Renewable America is a California-based solar and energy storage company focused on optimally sized projects that positively impact local communities.
Now you can have local power and the scale to meet your needs. Our solar and storage projects reflect the sweet spot for renewable energy development.
Our solar and storage projects will help you reach your procurement goals by offering your customers the choice of local, affordable renewable energy.
Instead of procuring renewable energy credits or supply from far away, you can support your community with optimally sized off-site solar.
We partner with public agencies to provide community-based renewable energy solutions that scale beyond what on-site systems would allow.
Our solar and storage projects provide grid resiliency at the distribution level, stabilizing power supply directly to the feeder.
We strive to create community-based impact through job growth, distribution-level grid resiliency, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
We partner with landowners to develop land for community-based solar and energy storage projects.
By procuring solar and storage from your community, you are driving real economic impact – even if the project isn’t located at your facility.
Renewable America’s mission is to become a leading provider of Distributed Energy Resources. Meet the team who is working hard to make this possible.
