Join our team, make a difference
Our core contribution to global sustainability is decarbonizing the energy landscape through responsible solar and energy storage projects we develop, own and operate. We’ve quickly become a leader in the United States solar and storage landscape.
Since early 2019, our team in the USA has raised more than $3.6 billion in project financing and we have more than 3.2 gigawatts of solar in construction or operation. That’s enough to power more than 550,000 American homes and reduce our carbon footprint by 4.1 million metric tons every year. And we’ve just started.
