Consultation and Engagement

We value and consider local community interests and priorities. We engage government, employees, local communities, investors, shareholders, and Indigenous communities. Our goal for every project, every facility and every initiative, internal and external, is to build, operate, and align with the interests and priorities of those closest to, and most impacted by, our operations.

We are delighted to provide additional renewable energy to the people of North Carolina. Renewable projects like these represent another step toward our goal of being net carbon neutral by 2050, and continue to enhance our expertise in solar development and construction while building our competitiveness for future solar growth opportunities.
