Millennium’s seminal work on utility-scale PV projects is well-known and frequently cited throughout the industry, as its work within the landfill solar and Brownfield industries. 

Millennium also has demonstrated a high level of expertise in understanding utilities’ needs through its extensive work in the utility sector. The Team’s qualifications in working with utility-scale solar projects and value-added utility solar resource acquisitions enhance our efforts beyond those of merely developing PV projects for compliance purposes. The Millennium team includes professionals who have spent much of their careers working within the utility industry. They helped pioneer strategies for utility solar resource acquisitions, including utility ownership and community ownership models. Their work on this topic for national utility associations and other industry clients enables them to take a perspective that is different from that of most solar IPP developers, who are, for example, primarily focused on MWH (SREC) production. OUr work with some of the leading and progressive utilities in the nation when it comes to solar is a testament to the Millennium approach. Through our value-added approach, Millennium Energy is able to set a course for its utility clients for enhancing economic and strategic value over the lifetime of the utility’s investment.
