We're looking for several kinds of clean
energy partners in California

Community Solar Farms

If you have over 10 acres of vacant land, your property could become our next community solar farm. You’ll generate clean energy for your community while earning long-term income. 

Commercial Rooftop Solar

Turn your rooftop into a source of income and electricity. If you have a commercial rooftop with at least 30,000 square feet of space, you may be eligible to become our next rooftop community solar project host and reduce your electricity costs by at least 10+%.

Battery Storage

To earn long-term lease income as a battery project host, all you need is 7,000+ square feet of land in a commercial or industrial zone. Battery storage projects are a vital part of the clean energy transition, helping to ensure we have electricity when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing.

Solar Carports

In addition to allowing you to earn passive income on 30,000+ square feet of parking lot space, solar carports protect your customers’ vehicles from rain, snow, and sun while reducing your electricity costs by at least 10+%.

Get Started

Transition to renewable energy by hosting a solar project, subscribing to a project, or co-developing a project with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

UGE is 100% responsible for all costs and work associated with the project. You will never pay for anything, and instead, will earn lease payments in exchange for hosting the project. UGE is responsible for all work, every step of the way, including permitting, development, construction, and associated property taxes for the full lifecycle of the project, and when the time comes, we are responsible for decommissioning the project.

Currently, we are only able to develop solar and battery storage projects in the following utility territories: San Diego Gas & Electric, Pacific Gas & Electric, and Southern California Edison

Lease rates vary quite a bit based on the city, county, and utility territory where your property sits, as well as the specific characteristics of your property. In order to provide an estimate lease rate, we’ll need to complete a quick feasibility analysis for your property. Just fill out the form on this page to get started!

Community solar projects, also known as solar farms, solar gardens, solar parks, or solar fields, are areas of land, commercial rooftops, or carport canopies containing interconnected solar panels that harvest large amounts of solar energy at once. Community solar projects are designed for mid- to large-scale solar energy generation that feeds directly into the grid, as opposed to individual solar panels that usually power a single home or building.
