Distributed Solutions

Corporate & Industrial

The Distributed Solutions team of EDF Renewables works with clients to understand the operational costs and energy requirement that solar PV can offset. A solar or solar + storage or a solar + storage + EV charging project can offset the energy costs of large manufacturing buildings, warehouses, cold storage facilities, or large corporate campuses. Ground-mounted projects are ideal for land that may not be utilized for other purposes.

By using renewable energy, your organization will be able to reduce its impact on the global environment, while also stabilizing electricity costs for years to come.

Some examples of our work with corporate entities include:

Bristol
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters
Pocono Raceway Solar
Environmentally-Sensitive Sites

EDF Renewables is a leader in the brownfield solar market, constructing solar on properties that were once thought to have little to no development potential.  We have experience developing PV projects atop technically-challenging and environmentally-sensitive sites such as brownfields, municipal solid waste landfills, open water and wastewater treatment tanks, Superfunds, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) landfill caps. This experience is vital to developing appropriate safety guidelines, training standards, and design parameters that will take into consideration the unique challenges of these sites.

Some examples of our project experience on capped landfills include:

Stafford Hill Solar Farm
Clean Harbors
Tannery Road Landfill
