Citizens Solar operates projects all across the United States. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Specializing in photovoltaic (PV) technology at utility-scale, Citizens Solar partners with a variety of organizations, ranging from public and private entities municipalities, utilities, schools, individuals, industrial clients, investors and financiers, to construction and engineering contractors. Citizens Solar offers fully integrated solar energy solutions paired with the flexibility to meet the needs of each partner. A few ways to work with us are described below.
Landowners: Citizens Solar works with landowners to bring solar power generation to their property through land-lease agreements. Citizens Solar develops, finances, constructs, owns, and operates our projects to provide competitive prices and seamless partnerships. Once operational, a solar lease with Citizens provides years of low-maintenance revenue from clean energy development. Please contact us if you are interested in developing your property for solar, or would like an evaluation of your land’s suitability for a solar project.
Energy Customers: Citizens Solar contracts with a wide array of end users to provide energy customers with savings through Power Purchase Agreements, Net-metering Credit Sales Agreements, or Community Solar models. If you don’t have suitable land, but are an industrial user with a large electricity bill, or a utility that procures wholesale electricity, Citizens can provide discounted power from one of our solar projects. Citizens’ partners are saving millions of dollars through these arrangements on their electricity costs.
Investors and Contractors: In addition to leasing land or purchasing solar power, Citizens Solar also works with tax equity partners, debt partners, and proven and reliable engineers and contractors.
Developers: We are interested in purchasing development assets or partnering with local developers in any stage of the development process. Please contact us to help make your project a success.
