Over the last several years, distributed solar generation has gone from being driven largely by a commitment to sustainability to a viable and cost-effective way to lower energy costs and lock in prices, protecting energy users from energy rate volatility and increases.
Now, as solar becomes cost competitive with conventional energy in more markets and the availability of financing options improves, energy users increasingly can afford to integrate distributed energy into their energy management strategies. Competitive enterprises and responsible public sector agencies must consider a variety of ownership structures for their energy generation, just as they do for other major expenses. A range of organizations are investing in solar, from the public and private arenas, such as:
- Apartment and Condominium Complexes
- Colleges, Universities, and School Districts
- Health Facilities
- Water Authorities
Waiting for the market to improve is no longer a conservative approach. By not considering renewable generation, you are making a bet that utilities will offer more cost-effective energy than distributed generation can in the long-term.
Why Customers Choose Borrego Solar
“Since the beginning, Borrego has been really clear in their communication with us. They’ve done an excellent job of explaining the whole process of how a power purchase agreement works, and also how we move forward in the process—from design to construction to completion. They’ve been a really easy partner to work with.”Brian Webb, Sustainability Coordinator, Houghton College
The success of a solar project is often determined during the early stages of evaluation, scoping, and project definition—before a contract is even signed. Our development and engineering teams collaborate with our customers to determine the optimal solution to meet their goals given their site characteristics, operations, and rate options. We customize our process to our customers’ needs and our team digs deep to identify and address issues early on.
Regardless of tight timelines, critical site operations, or complex permitting challenges, customers count on Borrego Solar to execute their project on time and within budget. Once the system is operational, they trust us to ensure that the system is performing as expected and bank on the warranties and guarantees that we provide to minimize risk for the full life of the project.
We evaluate and procure materials from a wide range of vendors and manufacturers. We leverage our industry experience to find the best pricing—and the best solution—for each customer’s particular needs. Our technology-agnostic approach ensures that each project is built with the optimal technology from leading industry vendors.

They worked closely with local electrical contractors to build a 1.14 megawatt installation on six acres of unused land adjacent to the hospital. Their integrated financing was easy to navigate and the funds needed to build the project were available once we were ready to proceed.”Mark Foote, CFO, Madera Community Hospital
