We don’t just say we want to make the world a better place, we actively build projects with impacts at the site-level, project-level, and community level. Whether it is adding pollinator projects and native grasses during project development or working with one of our many community partners to bring those left out of the clean energy transition into the fold, we’re firmly committed to accelerating an equitable transition to a sustainable energy future.
Sol Systems and Google have structured an integrated clean energy investment and procurement strategy to enable 225 MWdc of new solar energy projects and 18 MW of battery storage. The partnership will deploy capital to seed critical investments into community organizations that serve under-resourced and minority communities
FedEx is allocating a portion of the electricity bill credits generated by the project as well as supplemental cash donations, to local nonprofit SOME (So Others Might Eat) to offset the annual electricity costs at two facilities. Sol is matching first-year contributions and committing volunteer hours.
Solar Farm 2.0 incorporates native seeding throughout the 54 acres of land in which the solar project lies that bring extensive ecological benefits. The 21 different plant types create a natural habitat for a variety of local and migratory birds and beneficial insects, bolstering their populations.
Approximately 94% of the project’s construction-related waste was recycled or otherwise diverted from landfills through zero-waste construction practices. This process prevented as much as 45 tons of materials from reaching landfills, including the project’s construction packaging, plastics, wood pallets, and other refuse.
Sol Systems worked with students in the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment’s campus wide sustainability minor to access the carbon footprint of Solar Farm 2.0 from start to finish, including hands-on measurement of the onsite carbon levels that occur through soil sequestration.
In parallel to a 500 MW portfolio Sol is developing for Microsoft. Sol Systems and Microsoft will invest at least $50 million for community-led grants and investments that support educational programs, job and career training, habitat restoration, and programs that support access to clean energy and energy efficiency.
Projects in the portfolio will be planted with pollinator habitats as well as deploying agrivoltaics where possible in the form of wetlands restoration, onsite crop growth, and other methods that promote thriving ecosystems around our projects.
The Norfolk community solar + storage project is part of NPPD’s SunWise program, a community solar initiative where customers who sign up to obtain a share will receive an electricity bill credit. The credit allows customers to benefit from solar without the upfront cost of building a solar system on…
The project incorporates on-site pollinator habitats to support the local ecosystem and local pollinator populations, like bees.
Sol Systems and our counterparties partnered with Northeast Community College’s (NECC) Electrical Construction and Control Program to give students internship experience by working alongside project operators and partners to gain onsite and practical solar experience once the project is operational. Sol Systems is also contributing three scholarships to students in…
