Nexamp and T-Mobile have partnered in Nexamp’s community solar program. The long-term agreement to participate in the Nexamp community solar program is part of T-Mobile’s efforts to achieve its carbon emissions targets.
With subscriptions to 10 separate Nexamp solar farms representing over 50 MW of total project capacity across Maine, Massachusetts and New York, T-Mobile will realize significant savings through the discounted credits applied to its electric bills in three different utility zones.
Additionally, local electric customers interested in participating in clean energy can subscribe to these projects and receive discounts on their bill.
“We at T-Mobile are all-in on sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint, so it’s important for us to align with partners that share our passion and commitment for bringing more green energy to the grid,” said Chad Wilkerson, Director of Sustainability and Infrastructure Sourcing at T-Mobile. “We chose Nexamp to help us in that effort because we understand the importance of community solar in our pursuit of a decarbonized future.”
NRG served as the RFP consultant for T-Mobile, which selected Nexamp on the strength of its community solar portfolio. Nexamp will be the long-term owner of the projects.
“Time is not a luxury we have as we look at the urgent need to transition the global energy market to all renewable sources,” noted Nexamp CEO Zaid Ashai. “T-Mobile is leading by example in its sustainability commitments. Solar, wind, on-site, off-site … all these have a role to play in getting away from the fossil fuel dependence that is killing our world. And it’s not just about the generation source, it’s also about
doing what’s right for the business financially in the interest of long-term success. We admire T-Mobile’s
commitments and are proud to offer a solution that helps the organization to meet its goals.”
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.
