How Solar Energy Projects Work

We follow standardized processes, best practices and safe execution in developing our solar energy projects. We are committed to meeting or exceeding all the regulatory requirements. Equally important, we engage with the community to ensure we select the most appropriate sites for generating solar energy. We are respectful of our neighbors, and we work with the community from start to finish. 



When selecting a location for a solar project and other clean energy technologies, we look for sites near existing power poles, wires and other infrastructure.



The design of every solar project is unique, because we look for ways to build around wetlands and other sensitive areas whenever possible.



Construction typically lasts six to nine months depending on the size of the project. During construction, we install small steel posts to support the solar panels. These posts require no concrete and have no impact on the productivity of the soil.



During operation, solar sites make virtually no noise and create no dust or pollution. Solar sites also don’t require staff to operate, so they don’t bring additional traffic to the area.


How Solar Power Works


PV Solar


  1. As sunlight hits the solar panels, the energy from the sun is converted into direct current (DC) electricity.

  2. Direct current flows into power inverters where it is converted into alternating current (AC).

  3. The zero-emissions electricity travels through transformers and the voltage is boosted for delivery onto the electric grid for delivery to homes and businesses.
