Harnessing the power of the sun to fulfill energy needs and shape a sustainable future

ENGIE North America Supports Commercial and Industrial Companies, Municipalities, and Utilities to meet their sustainable energy goals through solar energy, increasingly combined with storage solutions.

There are numerous ways organizations can tap into solar energy. We configure solutions based on specific requirement for scale, price stability, energy efficiency, resiliency, and flexibility. Our portfolio includes:  

  • Large, grid-scale solar farms providing clean energy to several of a company’s or municipality’s buildings via Power Purchasing Agreements (PPAs) 
  • Rooftop installations and carports for on-site solar 
  • Distribution scale systems that connect to the local grid to service communities 
  • Community solar gardens (CSG) which bring renewable energy to businesses, residents and municipalities that don’t have the resources for on-site solar or direct power purchase agreements (PPAs). 

We provide complete end-to-end services from development to financing, construction, procurement and operations.   Regardless of the identified solution or customer, we’ve built a reputation on innovation, integration, and exceptional service.

Affordable solar installations power company campuses, cities, towns and regions 

We work with customers at the municipal, utility and corporate level, to build a portfolio of cost-efficient solar energy installations across multiple sites. By  leveraging economies of scale, we help our clients improve the financial advantages of solar energy — lowering project financial costs, streamlining engineering, increasing buying power, improving supply-chain efficiencies and enhancing construction and ongoing system maintenance to generate strong economic returns on every project.  

And bring investment, economic incentives and jobs to local communities and citizens 

While our customers benefit from cleaner energy that is efficient, reliable, resilient, and flexible, the communities where we implement our solar farms also benefit from our partnership. From acting as trusted stewards of the land, to investing in local communities through jobs, economic incentives, and community education on solar energy – our involvement in local communities is rooted in our purpose to shape a sustainable future – For the long term. 

Our Solar Projects

Holman, Texas
Holman, Texas

In April 2017, ENGIE achieved commercial operations of the 50 MWp Solaire Holman project located in Brewster County, TX. The project consists of a 50 MWp solar electric generating facility using poly-silicon technology and single axis trackers to generate electricity for the ERCOT wholesale electric system. The array is selling 100% of its output under a 20-year PPA to the City of Houston, TX.
