Responsible Solar: Energy

Our primary purpose: Delivering affordable, emissions free energy through responsibly developed solar and storage projects

Driving meaningful climate action with Responsible Solar

Our core contribution to sustainability is generating emissions free electricity that adds security to our energy mix, while driving down electricity costs. By reducing harmful emissions in the energy sector, we are improving the health of people and the environment they live in.

The 3.2 gigawatts of solar projects we’ve developed across the USA deliver on this mission.

4.1 Million

Metric tons of CO2 abated annually, for healthier air


Fuel-burning cars taken off the road each year (equivalent)


U.S. homes able to be powered each year with home grown, clean energy

While decarbonization of the global energy landscape is imperative, Lightsource bp also recognizes that there are additional efforts to be made to reduce emissions associated with our operational footprint and our supply chain. In 2020, Lightsource bp joined the UN Race to Zero. We aim to reduce our absolute Scope 1 and 2 emissions 42% by 2030, from 2021, and to reduce our Scope 3 emissions 52% per MW generation capacity constructed by 2030, from 2021.
