Northeast-based solar contractor Nexamp is expanding its business focus to include utility-scale solar development. The company, which currently operates hundreds of community solar projects across the country, will provides its expertise in project development, land management, design and construction, power marketing and asset management to the new market.
“Building out solar assets at the utility scale is not new but requires constant innovation to remain on the competitive edge,” noted new Nexamp-hire Marc-Alain Behar as VP of Utility Scale Solar Development. “Federal infrastructure investment and demand for a cleaner grid will drive this market over the next decade. I came to Nexamp because I see huge potential for leveraging its existing capabilities and knowledge around solar and energy storage to take it to the next level. I’m just excited to play a part in moving the nation toward a carbon-free future that will help ensure more equity and a better quality of life.”
“As the nation turns its attention and resources to rebuilding the energy infrastructure with renewable technology, solar will play a significant role at all scales. Nexamp is well positioned to become a major player in the utility-scale segment of the market, and under the leadership of Marc-Alain, we have already begun to put pieces in place,” said Chris Clark, Chief Development Officer of Nexamp.
Initially, Nexamp will focus on markets where it can best support customers in addressing their sustainability goals through its vertically integrated model. Typical customers for utility-scale solar and storage projects could be utilities, commercial or industrial (C&I) companies, or municipalities.
