We borrow the best practices of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) SunShot Initiative to make utility solar project development more accessible and affordable for customers without putting upward pressure on rates.
What Is the DOE SunShot Initiative?
We just can’t say enough about this smart program. The DOE SunShot Initiative is a national collaborative effort to make solar energy cost-competitive with other forms of electricity by the end of the decade. Pretty cool, right? We think so.
What Is Utility Solar Project Development?
Utility companies, such as Georgia Power and Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), are integrating increasing amounts of renewable energy into their mix by offering long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) to private developers of renewable energy projects. Participation in these utility programs typically consists of a developer (owner) and property owner (host), or sometimes these parties are one and the same (owner and host).
How Bright Spaces Helps You, Big Time
Bright Spaces’ renewable energy professionals educate host sites about the suitability of their property for solar development and educate solar developers of available host sites.
Utility and local government rules and regulations present regulatory barriers that make participation in utility solar project development challenging and costly. The Bright Spaces team has over 20 years of collective experience developing solar projects and can quickly determine a viable path for the success of your project.
We Save Time and Money
Bright Spaces employs strategies and best practices to streamline processes and reduce soft costs, including leveraging consumer-targeting strategies and using software tools that enable more accurate quotes and reduced time.
