Cooperative Utility Solutions

SunEdison Delivers a Local Source for Energy Diversification.

Solar Energy for Coop Utility Solutions

Cooperative utilities ("co-ops") depend on cost-effective energy from diverse, local sources. Members demand low costs, high reliability, and increasing use of renewable energy sources to meet RPS requirements as well as community goals. At the same time, more customers are demanding clean, renewable energy.

There has never been a better time to go solar. Solar energy can help to address a co-op's energy and community needs at once by providing a local energy resource that can benefit the local economy. SunEdison has experience in helping energy co-ops to affordably and effectively add renewable solar energy to their portfolios.

We're one of the world's largest solar services providers, and that enables us to apply best practices from our more than 550 deployments across the globe to benefit all SunEdison customers, helping co-ops manage variability and maximize solar energy generation. We bring local expertise for the development, deployment and integration of solar solutions-green jobs for a green economy.

Our global experience and reach gives us unmatched knowledge in helping customers navigate financing, regulatory compliance and solar incentive programs. Then we execute solar solutions with industry-leading expertise in development, deployment and integration. SunEdison customers get not only the most advanced technologies that best meet their needs, but also receive terms that are customized to maximize benefits for each customer's unique circumstances.

Solar Cost Reduction Through Innovation.

We're also focused on driving continual solar innovation to reduce costs and improve performance; this ensures 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 own solar supply chain- from sand to silicon to solar panel to solar electricity generation--allowing us to lead cost efficiencies, drive the cost of solar down and provide our customer's certainty of supply and delivery on time every time.

What's more, 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.
