8minutenergy has vast experience in successfully developing solar PV projects in the United States. We currently have over 20 ground-mounted solar PV farms in various stages of development - from 3 MW to 800MW (one of the largest solar farms in the world).
These solar farms are scheduled to produce 2,000MW of power prior to 2016. Located on over 15,000 acres, the plants will generate enough clean, safe, reliable electricity to power over one million households. All 8minutenergy projects are located on disturbed, low-value farm land.
8minutenergy has earned a reputation in the renewable energy industry for our ability to advance solar PV projects. To date, we have closed 300MW in Power Purchase Agreements (PPA); secured 1,000MW in General Interconnection Agreements (GIA); financed and constructed 700MW; have 7,500MW acres with Conditional Use Permits (CUP); and 266MW are currently under construction.
8minutenergy Renewables holds one of the largest solar PV development portfolios in the United States. We continue to expand our portfolio by adding new projects to develop and acquiring existing solar projects. Select 8minutenergy projects under development include:
