8minute Solar Energy

Energy Storage System for Utilities - Energy - Energy Utilities

8minute has established a reputation as a trusted partner with both utilities and communities alike.

THE FOUR LARGEST UTILITIES, COVERING 80% OF THE CALIFORNIA POWER MARKET, HAVE ALL EXECUTED PPAS WITH 8MINUTE AND ARE REPEAT CUSTOMERS.

8minute’s unique model for solar infrastructure with a focus on design optimization achieves industry-leading Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE). A continuous process of system analysis, attention to performance details, driving down costs, and matching the design to the characteristics of the site, produces the optimum solution for each project.

8minute does not have a financial stake in the production of PV equipment, which allows the company to select and deploy the best technology for each project. Additionally, 8minute only develops solar power and battery storage projects, thus eliminating the possibility of price and production conflicts with alternative types of projects.
