Overview

Pivot Energy brings a holistic and community-oriented approach to developing solar projects for co-ops. Our team understands that co-ops often want to deploy solar projects that engage and benefit their customers, members, and stakeholders. We build partnerships with co-ops that last well beyond a single procurement, leading to continued positive experiences.

Community Solar

Community solar is an excellent way for co-ops to spread the benefits of solar across many members while also benefitting from the scale of a big project. Examples could be a green tariff product, a monthly subscription product, or a long-term ownership product. Pivot can also provide its SunCentral software as a way of managing the customer relationship.

Onsite Solar

Onsite solar or behind-the-meter solar is a great way to directly offset the electric use of one customer. Like any utility, co-op utilities have a variety of members from residents, to seasonal agricultural uses, to manufacturing plants, to schools, libraries, and municipal buildings. Pivot works with the co-op and customer to assess what solar design can offset the customer's usage.

Battery Storage

Battery Storage coupled with solar is the next evolution underway in the renewable industry. Storage can help co-ops control when, where, and how electricity is discharged on its grid infrastructure. Adding storage technology can help co-ops balance seasonal and daytime load cycles. Storage can also help save co-ops money by reducing the amount of electricity purchased at peak times.

Virtual Net Metering

The VNM model is appropriate when there is a co-op member that would like to have their own solar project, but ultimately their property is not suitable for solar. Pivot would then work with the co-op to identify a remote site and install a project that virtually offsets the co-op member’s electricity use.
