Every one of our projects
— more than 12,000+ acres —
has been approved.

We conduct extensive impact, economic, and environmental analyses upfront, working very closely with environmentalists early in the process to significantly mitigate potential risks. This reputation for stewardship has enabled us to cultivate support from leading environmental groups, such as the Sierra Club, Audubon California, Defenders of Wildlife and the Natural Resources Defense Council.


A singular focus.

8minutenergy is a pure play solar PV development company.

We’re privately held and financed by our principals, which is unique to the industry. This gives us the freedom to be truly independent and focus on the best technology choices and implementation for each project. Our experienced and talented team of associates have a singular focus — to get projects into producing electricity.

Driving down the price of energy.

No other company is able to bring down the price of energy as much
as 8minutenergy (and still deliver the project successfully). We’ve been awarded
more than 1,150 MWs in PPAs in California since 2012 — the largest share for any
developer during this timeframe. By customizing projects before we have a PPA,
we’re able to offer our customers the greatest value.
