Nexamp Named #1 Community Solar Company by Solar Power World Magazine


Nexamp, a leading clean energy solutions provider, has been awarded the prestigious title of "#1 Community Solar Company" by Solar Power World magazine. This recognition highlights Nexamp's foundational commitment to advancing renewable energy accessibility, environmental stewardship, and community empowerment.

Since its inception, Nexamp has set out to transform the way individuals, businesses, and communities access and utilize solar energy. By developing innovative solar projects nationwide, the company has consistently broken barriers and created opportunities for a greener future. The company's extensive portfolio of community solar installations stands as a testament to its vision of a cleaner, more sustainable grid.

The Solar Power World list is developed each year to honor the work of solar companies in the United States. Solar firms in the utility, community solar, and residential markets are ranked by the number of kilowatts they installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific services, markets, and states.

"Earning the top spot on this list is an honor," said Zaid Ashai, CEO of Nexamp, "and as always, it shows our commitment to our mission. With an industry-leading community solar program and our growing suite of decarbonization services, we are proud of the way we continue to revolutionize the grid by developing, building, owning, and operating the solar and storage solutions of tomorrow."

2023 so far has been one of the busiest in Nexamp's history, surpassing the company's previous single-year record for megawatts of new projects turned on in just the first two quarters. Since its founding in 2007, Nexamp has installed more than a gigawatt of solar capacity.

"Renewable energy accounts for a quarter of U.S. electrical generation, now far exceeding electricity produced by burning coal," said Kelsey Misbrener, managing editor of Solar Power World. "Solar power is an important member of that renewable makeup, and companies on the Top Solar Contractors List are all contributing to our country's shift to cleaner electricity. We are honored to recognize them each year for their necessary work putting green kilowatts on roofs, over parking lots, in desert locations, and across water reservoirs. Every project is making a difference."

The United States reported its strongest first-quarter ever in Q1 2023 for solar installed, and industry analysts expect the solar market to triple in size over the next five years. The industry will continue to lead the way in rebuilding our infrastructure to ensure a cleaner grid.

SEES Introduces Methane Monitoring Instrument for Oil and Gas Industry

SLB | October 09, 2023

SLB's SEES introduces a next-gen methane monitoring system. The methane point instrument offers exceptional leak detection sensitivity in a compact, plug-and-play solution. The instrument complies with reporting criteria from OGMP, the United Nations Environment Programme, and EU requirements. SLB's End-to-end Emissions Solutions (SEES) business has unveiled its next-generation methane point instrument. This self-installed continuous methane monitoring system harnesses IoT-enabled sensors to swiftly and cost-effectively detect, pinpoint, and quantify emissions throughout oil and gas operations. Effective monitoring is pivotal in the battle against methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) with a climate change impact potentially 84 times greater than that of carbon dioxide over a 20-year span, responsible for nearly half of the oil and gas sector's operational emissions. The methane point instrument heralds a breakthrough in methane measurement technology, providing operators with exceptional leak detection sensitivity in a compact, durable, and pioneering 'plug-and-play' solution. This innovative technology automates continuous methane monitoring, rendering manual data collection during sporadic site visits obsolete, as these visits only offer a small sample of emissions. Designed to be lightweight and portable, this compact device features an integrated solar panel, wind measurement capabilities, and a methane sensor. It can be self-installed in mere minutes, effortlessly mounted on existing infrastructure, and deployed at virtually no additional cost – akin to installing a home security camera. This advancement empowers operators to cost-effectively expand and swiftly implement continuous methane monitoring across their facilities. Kahina Abdeli-Galinier, emissions business director, SLB, commented, Designed for ‘always on’, accurate measurement and fast, affordable deployment at any scale, our next generation point instrument widens the accessibility to continuous methane monitoring for the industry, providing producers with a practical pathway to achieve a more complete picture of their emissions profile. [Source – Business Wire] Kahina further noted that such insight, combined with improved deployability, is growing in significance for producers worldwide due to increasing pressure from regulators and the public to address the immediate climate change impacts caused by methane. The methane point instrument aligns with the reporting criteria set forth by the Oil & Gas Methane Partnership 2.0 (OGMP), the United Nations Environment Programme's flagship reporting and mitigation initiative. Furthermore, it adheres to related reporting requirements within the European Union and is poised to meet the proposed US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for methane monitoring at active onshore US production sites. This announcement was made as a part of ADIPEC, an international platform where industry leaders converge to drive collective, responsible, and expeditious action toward decarbonizing and future-proofing our energy systems. SEES, launched in March 2022, offers a comprehensive suite of services and state-of-the-art technologies, empowering operators with a robust and scalable solution for measuring, monitoring, reporting, and, ultimately, mitigating methane emissions and routine flare emissions. Since its inception, SEES has executed customer projects on a global scale, deploying its array of capabilities, including consulting, optimized surveillance planning, measurements, and interpretation through a secure digital platform.

Fort Moore EV charging project provides another example of EVSE solution

PR Newswire | October 23, 2023

Fort Moore and Georgia Power, a Southern Company subsidiary, recently entered into a contract to install 63 electric vehicle chargers at 23 locations across the base, allowing up to 126 vehicles to be plugged in on the base simultaneously. The project is underway and expected to be complete by the first quarter of 2024. Georgia Power was awarded a task order to provide a turnkey electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) solution using the General Services Administration Areawide Contract (AWC). The AWC task order will be used to provide a holistic and scalable EVSE solution to support electrification requirements. The AWC provides a useful contracting vehicle with regulated servicing utility companies. Under this arrangement, federal agencies may order utilities and other services from that supplier. The electric distribution system at Fort Moore is owned and managed by Flint Energies. Georgia Power, in partnership with Flint Energies, will extend the distribution system and add the charging stations necessary to charge the expanded electric vehicle fleet. stated Col. Colin Mahle, Fort Moore Garrison commander. Fort Moore leads the Army in our development and adoption of large-scale EV projects. The Army's goal is for all of our non-tactical vehicles to be EV by 2035. That will take more than just adding electric vehicles to our fleet, it will take additional infrastructure. We intend to achieve our goal of 100 percent EV vehicles early. [Source:PR Newswire] The EV charging project at Fort Moore is an example of better energy use and overall modernization. It also demonstrates Southern Company's commitment to supporting the resiliency, net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and decarbonization efforts of the Department of Defense installations and their efforts to meet the requirements of the Biden Administration Executive Order 14057. "In addition to being essential for national defense, our nation's military bases are powerful economic engines for surrounding communities providing jobs and driving thriving local economies," said Chris Cummiskey, executive vice president, chief customer solutions and chief commercial officer for Southern Company. "We're appreciative of this partnership with Fort Moore, further exhibiting our mutual commitment to energy innovation and decarbonization. As the new EV charging stations become electrified across the installation this year, we're certain the investment that is being made today will benefit the base for years to come."
