Utilities and Electric Cooperatives
Throughout our history, we have developed a brand that caters to the unique constraints, risks, and regulatory frameworks within which municipal, investor-owned, and cooperative utilities operate.
Our goal is to be a commercial solar company partner serving utilities to help them meet their renewable energy goals and objectives. Through our combination of industry-leading sources of project capital, and a mission based approach to development, we are able to win projects based on price, and deliver them based on reputation and thoughtful development within the communities you serve.
Our team is committed to working through risks upfront for the project, to ensure your organization only commits time and resources to viable projects.
Ways to Work with Encore:
- Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs):
We can provide industry leading competitive PPA pricing for utility owned sites, or our company controlled sites within your service territory.
- Project Development and Construction Agreements (PDCAs):
We can provide investment ready project development and EPC services to construct a project for direct utility ownership under a risk adjusted milestone payment schedule designed to limit exposure of the utility and its ratepayers from development and construction risk.
