Renewable energy, and in particular solar, represents a great business opportunity for many independent power producers. Not only does solar allow you to diversify your investments, but it enables you to expand your portfolio as the demand for renewable energy grows.
Whether you're looking for a financing, development, installation or O&M partner, we're up to the task. No one has more experience than SunEdison in helping IPPs to profitably and effectively realize the full potential of solar. We were the first solar company to develop a utility-scale solar plant in the U.S. To date we have developed, own, or operate more than 60 utility-scale solar power plants, and deliver more than 500 MW of solar energy capacity around the world. We have worked with some of the world's leading utilities to help them meet their energy needs, and we apply that experience to deliver best practices for other customers, from development to deployment and integration of solar solutions.
Our size and experience gives us unmatched knowledge in helping customers navigate financing, regulatory compliance and solar incentives. Then we execute solar solutions with industry-leading expertise in development, deployment and integration. SunEdison customers get not only the most advanced technologies, but they get it along with terms that maximize benefits for each customer's unique circumstances.
We are also focused on driving continuous solar innovation to reduce costs and improve performance, thus ensuring that our utility customers get the most value from their investments in solar now and in the future. Together with our parent company, MEMC, we control our entire solar supply chain: from sand to silicon to solar panel to solar electricity generation. This allows us to drive down the cost of solar and ensure our customer deliveries are on time, every time.
And, we have a dedicated Research & Development team and facilities focused on applied research and testing of emerging solar technologies such as solar panel efficiency, next generation inverter technologies and energy storage.
