iSun Inc., a company with 50 years of construction experience in solar, electrical and data services, is embarking on a big electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure project. Selected in a competitive bid by two of the most important entities in the municipal EV fleet and off-grid charging networks, iSun will design and deploy several and grid-tied and off-grid solar powered electric-vehicle charging stations across America.
Sites include trailhead and urban locations to provide solar powered EV charging at multiple National Forest trailheads and municipal fleet-charging sites across America. The $2 million initial contract value is in addition to the company’s recently reported $81 million project backlog.
“We look forward to growing these new relationships and to supporting the transition from dirty energy to clean energy across America,” Jeffrey Peck, iSun’s CEO said. “These recent wins also demonstrate the accretive value of the iSun Energy LLC acquisition in January 2021. iSun wants to create the best experience with reliable charging solutions, so electric vehicle drivers can go anywhere and do anything in their EVs.”
The iSun ROAM off-grid solution and the iSun PALM grid-tied system have a scalable and modular design and high-quality aircraft grade aluminum materials. The Intelligent iSunOS operating system monitors/manages the battery, EV chargers and solar-power produced. Ground-level energy storage means ease of maintenance and installation.
Headquartered in Burlington, VT, iSun provides solar energy and clean mobility infrastructure to customers for projects from smart solar mobile phone and electric vehicle charging to large utility renewable energy solutions. Since entering the renewable energy market in 2012, iSun has installed over 400 megawatts of rooftop, ground mount and EV carport solar systems (equal to power required for 76,000 homes).
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.
