Clean Grid offers industry leading services built on our in-depth experience in utility scale solar and battery storage development. We have conducted constraints analysis on millions of acres for development across the United States. Our services focus support on the early stages of project origination and land acquisition. Clean Grid’s land team has an impressive track record in successfully negotiating hundreds of land-use agreements on behalf of many of the industry leading renewable energy developers. We efficiently acquire land use rights on high quality sites, while fostering excellent relationships with landowners on behalf of our development partners. We document all landowner interactions and provide regular reports and updates that are customized to our partners’ needs.

Why Clean Grid Development?

Our Experience

We are senior project developers who have worked with and for large, reputable, vertically integrated renewable energy developers. We understand our development partners’ front-end land acquisition needs, we know project DEVEX/CAPEX costs and we are well-versed in project economic modeling. We are familiar with the programs and market plays we target.

Time is Money

Clean Grid provides high-quality project opportunities while easing the workload on our time-constrained development partners. We bring the project volume our partners seek, allowing them to avoid the cumbersome, costly cycles of hiring, training, and resource build-out. The need for new projects in core markets can ebb and flow due to a variety of factors, so let us worry about proper staffing for scalability.

Our Platform

Clean Grid Development has built a robust project mobilization platform with advanced software solutions that optimize GIS layers, infrastructure data, site identification and landowner outreach campaigns. This paves the way for efficient and effective land acquisition in target markets that yield the best renewable energy sites for our development partners.

Our Track Record

We’ve consistently demonstrated the ability to close deals and scale project pipelines across the country. We deliver on our commitments!
