Customer Stories

"Pivot Energy is hands down one of the most committed, experienced, and easy to work with solar providers in the industry. When St. Vrain Valley School District identified opportunities to install on-site solar systems, the team at Pivot Energy provided guidance and hands-on expertise to overcome multiple obstacles and succeed in installing about 1.2 MW of total generation. At the onset, staff analyzed our data, potential savings, and solar generation and even performed utility rate analysis so we could make the most educated decisions. These services were invaluable as the district sought out buy-in from stakeholders and engage the district and town.”

"Our ultimate goal of providing solar power access to our residents and tenants without passing on its cost was made possible by Pivot Energy, who provided the perfect solution to our project needs."

Jonathan Alpert

Partner, Westfield Development

“We were contacted by Pivot Energy during the initial strategy on how to accomplish our goal of reducing the carbon footprint of Volunteers of America Colorado by at least 5% over the next two years. This was the gateway for Volunteers of America to not only save money to use toward our programs, but also a way to reduce our energy footprint. While we are sure there are many different companies offering similar programs, the experience we have had working with Pivot Energy has been impressive from our first interaction."

“Solar is now a big part of our corporate sustainability program, and part of our ongoing effort to be good corporate citizens. Generating rooftop solar energy production in lieu of using energy from carbon-emitting sources furthers this commitment and leverages a previously unused asset within our portfolio – our rooftops – and provides cost savings from reduced utility expense.”

Joe Margolis

CEO, Extra Space Storage

"Pivot Energy did everything to make this project a reality. The entire process was really easy for me as the landowner. After signing the lease, Pivot did all the work and secured the permits. And once the construction started, it was completed quickly and easily. The contractor who built the project was friendly and did a great job."
