DSD Partners with Earthlight Technologies on 1.1 MW solar project

DSD Renewables (DSD) has partnered with Earthlight Technologies to develop a 1.1 MW ground mount solar system at a large commercial property owned by Mark Greenberg Real Estate (MGRE) in Farmington, Connecticut. The solar system is expected to be operational in early 2022 and will generate an estimated 1.35 million kWh of renewable energy annually, avoiding 960 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent each year.

Earthlight, who initiated the project with repeat customer MGRE, turned to DSD for access to competitive financing and long-term asset ownership. By joining DSD’s Developer Network, Earthlight gained the resources it needed to move the project forward, including real-time pricing tools, standardized documents and marketing materials, and others, all readily available through the DSD Connect platform.

“DSD helped make this project possible by providing a great financing solution for MGRE. The entire project would not have been possible without DSD’s expertise and assistance,” says Eric Virkler, Director of Commercial Solar and Storage at Earthlight. “MGRE is a valued client and our partnership with DSD provides us with the resources to deliver even more value to MGRE as we continue our relationship.”

Earthlight is headquartered in Ellington, CT and has completed more than 100 commercial solar projects throughout the Northeast region. This partnership will provide Earthlight with resources to build more efficient and successful C&I distributed generation projects.

“Earthlight is exactly the type of partner we want in our Developer Network,” says Danielle Fidel, an Account Executive for DSD’s Developer Network. “DSD Connect enables Earthlight to provide lightning fast PPA and lease quotes, while their local expertise and installation teams deliver great customer service and made-to-last solar assets for customers. It’s a win for everyone involved, and we look forward to continuing the partnership in the future.”

DSD launched its Developer Network and DSD Connect platform earlier this year with partnerships in California, the Southwest, Midwest, and Northeast, along with a growing portfolio of community solar and distributed generation projects for C&I and MUSH customers.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
