Municipal utilities face a myriad of energy objectives, from meeting sustainability goals, to local control over energy generation, to economic development and job creation. And, as more constituents are demanding clean energy, public utilities must be ready to respond.
There has never been a better time for municipal utilities to add, or increase, solar into their energy mix. And no one has more experience than SunEdison in helping municipal utilities to affordably and effectively add renewable solar energy to their portfolios.
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 generation and sustainability objectives, and we apply that experience to deliver best practices for other customers.
Our experience and reach gives us unmatched knowledge in helping customers navigate the complexities of solar while executing these programs with a local workforce for development, deployment and integration of solar systems. 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.
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.
