Pioneering Progress for 20 Years

This year, Standard Solar, a Brookfield company, proudly celebrates 20 years of excellence in breaking down barriers to commercial and community solar development. Over the past two decades, we have expanded access to renewable energy for businesses, institutions, farms, governments, communities and utilities. From our modest beginnings as a residential solar provider in 2004, we have evolved into a leading solar asset owner, with over 500 MW owned, operated and under construction across more than 20 states and the District of Columbia. Our integrated approach ensures that each project benefits from our expert team’s guidance, reducing complexities, engineering tailored solutions and securing necessary resources to deliver photovoltaic systems with long-term financial benefits.

Strategic Solutions with Long-Term Benefits

Whether you’re working on a complex multi-site portfolio, looking for help developing environmental impact solutions, need funding or have a project that’s ready for acquisition, we’re here to simplify the funding and development process while strengthening every aspect of your solar PV project through every phase of its lifecycle.

We are extremely satisfied with this new facility and how it will provide better service to our southern territory members. Having a building powered 100% with solar energy is something we’re proud of – and we couldn’t have done it without Standard Solar’s guidance.

Strategic development of solar electricity production can help meet electricity demands and combat climate change – an imperative we must immediately confront. I appreciated the opportunity to see cutting-edge technology at work at the Standard Solar solar array in Union Bridge and applaud the company’s role in helping to power Maryland’s electricity grid and innovation economy.

Goodwill Industries of the Valleys’ Chief Financial & Compliance Officer, Jackson Green, said, “Solar makes economic sense for Goodwill, and it aligns with our value of stewardship. The new array will save us money, be a long-term solution to rising energy costs and provide for opportunities for future investment in people and programs.”

The driving force behind Tommy’s vision was for everyone to have easy access to solar energy without needing to install solar panels. He was so proud of this project,” said Anne Cassidy, Managing Partner of SolarPark Energy. “I would like to thank the Town of York, and Standard Solar for their guidance in bringing this project over the finish line Tommy passed,” continued Cassidy.

We will be paying the same for the power coming out of those solar arrays in 2050 as we do today. It’s a great investment for the University and it allows us to get solar on our buildings at a very low financial risk.
