DENVER, CO (April 3, 2020) – While California is out in front of the solar-power parade, other states have been attracting attention as well.
We’ve seen a flurry of activity on the East Coast because of high electricity rates,” said Erik Bruner, Business Development Manager of Denver, Colorado-based Pivot Energy. He cited New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Massachusetts as examples, as well as southern states like Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, plus Texas and Colorado farther west.
“Those are the states that have developed favorable solar policies that–when combined with high rates and sometimes robust incentives–create a good financial picture,” he said.
Bruner said his firm has been working with multiple operators in multiple states, including Extra Space Storage and Safeguard Self Storage. “It’s great to see self-storage operators incorporating solar at a higher level than ever before,” he said.
