Our mission is to become the leading provider of Distributed Generation and Storage to transform power systems through a decentralization strategy. We will accomplish this by focusing on small utility-scale plants that fit into Distribution Grids and deploy electric storage to create Microgrids that serve communities with resilient energy.



Our vision is to enable every member of the community to have access to clean energy. We want to develop and operate 500MWP of solar power within the next 5 years.




Suntech Power Development America is a fully vertically integrated Independent Power Producer (IPP) and one of the 100% subsidiaries of the Suntech Power Japan Group. We have over 2GW of solar power plants operating globally.

Our US team is focusing on CCAs that serve their communities with locally generated power. Suntech Power Japan Group's strong financial background and worldwide IPP experience enables us to manage projects from the beginning of early-stage development through commissioning and operation.

Our extensive services include site selections, feasibility studies, engineering, construction, and finance. We lead the way to the future of Community Microgrids by changing how project development is executed.
