Pivot Energy and Standard Solar to Develop Three New Community Solar Projects in Colorado

Pivot Energy, Colorado's largest community solar developer, and Standard Solar, Inc., a nationally recognized leader in the development, financing, ownership, and maintenance of commercial and community solar assets, have announced the development of three new Colorado community solar projects. Two of the projects are in Garfield County, and the third is in Jefferson County. The projects will generate enough electricity to power more than 700 homes and a total of four megawatts of new renewable and abundant solar energy.

One megawatt of the portfolio is dedicated exclusively to servicing low-income subscribers, with the remaining three megawatts subscribed to by local governments and organizations. Pivot Energy designed and built the solar gardens and will manage the customers, while Standard Solar will finance, own, and maintain the systems.

Community solar is rapidly expanding across Colorado as a way for local governments to help meet renewable energy goals while also offering the potential for meaningful cost savings to everyone who pays an electric bill. Via the Garfield Clean Energy Collaborative and other initiatives, Clean Energy Economy for the Region (CLEER), a major clean energy advocacy organization for Colorado's western slope region, promotes the increased development of community solar.

Both solar gardens in Garfield County will be operational in June 2021, while the Jefferson County plant will be operational later this year. In 2021, Pivot intends to develop more gardens on the western slope.
