SunEdison is your trusted partner for innovative, intelligent energy solutions around the globe. We have built our business by putting our customers first, and focusing on addressing each customer’s unique solar energy needs. Through our integrated service approach, we partner with you, help you navigate your way through the solar landscape and offer uniquely tailored solutions and flexible financing.
Ultimately, we develop, finance, operate and monitor solar energy solutions worldwide, ranging from some of the world’s largest solar deployments to our residential customers’ rooftops. SunEdison is a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials (NYSE: WFR), a global leader in polysilicon and silicon wafer manufacturing, the foundation upon which most solar cells and semiconductor devices are built.
From Silicon to Electron
The integration of SunEdison and MEMC allows us to leverage 50 years of scientific research and manufacturing expertise to best serve our customers. MEMC is a customer-focused company with an extensive portfolio of over 750 patents and a world-class research and development department that we are utilizing to drive technical innovation in solar PV technology. Our semiconductor wafer products are the foundation for the technologies that entertain us, educate us, and connect us to each other. Our solar energy business provides the electricity that powers those technologies while reducing the world’s dependence on fossil fuels.
By bringing the two companies together, we’ve created a virtual vertical manufacturing process that seamlessly integrates with our energy services business. This integration benefits our customers because we have control over quality at every step of the process and we are able to offer predictable forward cost curve visibility to our customers.
The Payoff of World Perspective
Throughout the world, different regions and countries are in various stages of solar development, some with extensive solar adoption and others that are just starting to integrate solar into the energy mix. With the impressive growth that solar has experienced over the past several years, there is no doubt that governments and organizations will increasingly utilize solar for their energy needs.
Headquartered in Belmont, California in close proximity to Silicon Valley's technology and talent pool, SunEdison is a global leader in delivering solar power, with solar installations, manufacturing plants, and 39 offices located throughout North America, Europe and Asia. This broad-scale experience offers our customers an extremely important benefit: We understand what it takes to achieve solar success, from solution design to deployment to on-going management. And we diligently apply the world's 'lessons learned' to optimize each new deployment.
Moreover, our parent company, MEMC, is an established global leader in silicon wafer manufacturing. Together, we offer deep visibility into supply chain dynamics, which is a big advantage in the prediction of long-term solar trends and costs.
