Distributed Solutions

Utilities & Co-ops

EDF Renewables has a positive history and lengthy track record of integrating PV systems with utilities and power cooperatives across the U.S. We are knowledgeable in navigating interconnection requirements and the due diligence needs for successful utility interconnections. The utilization of solar PV can provide positive system benefits including peak load management, reduction in fossil fuel usage and greenhouse gas emissions, and compliance with renewable portfolio standards.

Some of the utilities and co-ops we have had the pleasure of working with on clean energy projects:

  • Dairyland Power Cooperative - Wisconsin
  • Taunton Municipal Light Plant - Massachusetts
  • Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) - Indiana
  • Templeton Municipal Light Plant - Massachusetts
  • Jacksonville Electric Authority - Florida
  • Oklahoma Gas & Electric - Oklahoma
  • Green Mountain Power - Vermont
