COMMUNITY ORIENTATION
Our principals have a history of focusing on long-term relationships, which is why communities invite them back for future projects. This includes scholarships, educational opportunities, local jobs, and tax revenue. Our U.S. DOE-funded Thermal Energy Storage project includes three universities and uses local Arizona contractors.
ADDED VALUE FOR UTILITIES
Our team understands that value for utilities extends beyond just RECs and RPS compliance. We work with utilities to site and engineer projects for maximal value, including dispatchable gas firming solutions. Talk with us about how to tailor our project proposal to best fit your needs.
COMMERCIALLY PROVEN TECHNOLOGY
Our technology religion is built on bankability and cost-effectiveness. US Solar develops only projects with commercially-proven technologies. Parabolic Trough is a solar generation technology proven over decades at the SEGS projects in the Mojave. Photovoltaic (PV) projects also have decades of field history, with projects as large as 40 MW now in operation.
