Distributed generation, small scale utility, grid integration

Bring smart, efficient energy production down to earth. SoCore Energy’s Development Team focuses on ground-mounted, utility-scale solar development, with a particular focus on community solar gardens (CSG), virtual net metering (VNM) and direct power purchase agreements (PPAs). SoCore’s team of regionally-focused project developers work in concert with our project management teams and our affiliate SoCore Engineering LLC and other third party licensed engineers, to bring your ground-mounted solar projects to fruition. We currently have developments underway in about a dozen markets across the United States.
