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.”
