Community solar’s ambitious goals will only be met (or impactful) if the average homeowner knows where and how to sign up. A Boston-based clean energy company launched this week focused on doing just that, and it’s already helped onboard more than 6,300 subscribers. That’s because the company, Perch Energy, was formerly known as BlueWave Community Solar, which spun off from BlueWave in 2017.
The team quietly rebranded and is ready to let us all know that Perch is building off that successful, community solar services and management platform, while adding talent and resources to expand and scale.
“We are excited to be at the forefront of expanding access to community solar and clean energy, and soon, to communities that have been historically deprived of energy choice,” said Ravi Thuraisingham, acting CEO of Perch Energy. “We look forward to bringing our tools for easier access to renewable energy to more communities.”
Perch combines everything from acquisition support and credit management to customer service support and detailed reporting to serve as a one-stop shop for asset owners. The team’s experience spans 500 MW of contracted capacity.
Recently, Perch also launched a direct-to-consumer digital platform to offer more choice and “continuous market analysis.” Through Perch, homeowners and renters instantly gain full transparency into the current clean energy prices available to them locally.
