CS Operations Involvement

Using a unique development model, Sunlight Partners began developing solar projects in 2010 with a focus on California’s Feed-in Tariff and Standard Contract programs. In 2012, Sunlight Partners' expansion into additional solar markets began, most notably in North Carolina. By focusing on smaller projects, combined into larger portfolios, the company was able to connect to existing transmission and distribution corridors, de-risking the projects and increasing the likelihood of successful interconnection. CSO is the Manager of Sunlight Partners.
