Buying solar power provides a wide array of benefits
Purchasing solar power enables organizations to meaningfully advance their global carbon reduction and renewable energy goals and, importantly, drive the transition to a low-carbon economy. Our customers also capitalize on long-term budget certainty and cost savings through competitive solar energy procurement.
In other words, buying solar power is not only good for the environment, it makes sound business sense. According to the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook 2020, solar is now the ‘cheapest electricity in history.’ As a result, the US solar industry has passed 100 gigawatts of installed capacity, doubling the size of the industry in just over 3 years.
