Bethesda, MD January 21, 2021
Empower Energies completed construction of a 1.789 MW-DC solar installation for a Fortune 500 client at a large commercial office building in Wilmington, Delaware.
The project, designed and constructed by Empower, included removing a formerly installed garage-top solar project that prevented access to a full level of parking. Once removed, Empower replaced that system with a modern garage-top canopy installation to allow for covered parking. Empower also deployed new solar canopies on ground-level parking lots for the client. Both systems are integrated into a cutting-edge blockchain management system for the client. Blockchain technology provides immutable recording and reporting of solar generation attributes that contribute to emission and carbon offsets for the company.
The Wilmington project is just one of more than two dozen solar installations Empower is currently developing and constructing under an exclusive multi-year contract for this Fortune 500 client. At the completion of Empower’s work, the client will be one of the largest on-site corporate renewable power generators in the U.S. Under this innovative contracting structure, Empower is responsible for the end-to-end deployment of solar systems across the customer’s national footprint of commercial offices. Empower conducts site analysis and feasibility studies based on the client’s parameters, designs the systems, and manages the construction and long-term O&M – providing the client with turnkey service and a single point of accountability, while reducing deployment costs and ensuring consistency and coordination across the entire program.
“Empower Energies is proud to be part of our client’s efforts to achieve its ESG initiatives,” said Empower’s CEO John Clapp. “Our services as a renewable program manager along with the leadership from our Fortune 500 clients makes reaching the sustainability targets of our customers a reality.”
