Simplifying your access to offsite renewable energy 

There are many benefits to utilizing offsite renewable energy resources. Offsite renewables such as wind and solar can help reduce electricity costs, provide greater budget certainty, mitigate energy market price risk, and help your organization meet its business and sustainability goals — without the need for onsite installation.

Offsite Solar

When onsite solar installation is not feasible for your facility or property due to physical space available, building and land ownership restrictions, or financial constraints, offsite solar may be an excellent option. With offsite solar energy, your organization can leverage clean, renewable solar energy, reduce carbon emissions, lower electricity costs and meet sustainability goals — even when the solar array is not on your property. Offsite solar projects are generally structured one of two ways: 

1. The power generated from the solar panels is directly fed into your facility to offset your electricity consumption from the grid. 

2. The power is fed into the grid and your business receives a utility bill credit for the power generated. 

Offsite Wind

Wind is a clean, cost-effective choice which can help your organization reduce its carbon footprint, lower electricity costs, and meet sustainability goals. Wind energy is affordable, good for our environment and our economy. Wind energy provides millions in tax dollars and landowner payments. It also creates jobs and boosts local economies.

We provide a renewable energy impact analysis to compare past energy usage to future state–once you are leveraging renewable energy.


Offsite Renewables Benefits

Owned and Operated Elsewhere

Offsite solar systems are owned and operated by a developer who sells energy to subscribers at a fixed rate–often at a lower than market value–or via utility bill credits.

Renewable Energy Across Sites

Unlike onsite solar which only allows a single location to benefit from the renewable energy source, offsite solar or wind can yield savings benefits for multiple locations.

Community & Partnerships

Establishes a cooperative relationship within the community and can complement landowners’ farming and ranching operations.

No Water or Solid Waste

Creates no solid waste, greenhouse gases or waste byproducts. Does not require or use water to create electricity.
