CS Energy has completed the installation of 1 gigawatt of solar energy projects.
The company closed 2018 with 650 MW of completed solar projects and ended 2019 with 820 MW. In 2020, CS Energy reached 1,000 MW, despite industry contractions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is an incredible milestone, and one only possible because of the hard work and dedication of our team. I am so proud of our talented workforce, which has completed CS Energy projects to the highest standards of quality and safety across the country. We’re excited to put our deep experience to work for our clients as we begin installing the next gigawatt.”Matthew Skidmore, CEO of CS Energy.
CS Energy has completed nearly 200 solar projects across 16 states, in a mix of utility-scale solar projects and energy storage projects. Much of the 1 GW has been completed in the last three years as the firm manages increasingly larger projects, such as a recent 29 MW solar project in New Jersey.
The growth coincides with funds managed by the Infrastructure and Power strategy of Ares Management Corporation taking majority ownership of the company in 2018.
“We made a strategic investment in CS Energy knowing the firm had the capabilities to expand its impact on renewable energy projects across the country. We are thrilled that CS Energy has been able to achieve such a substantial milestone and consider it a testament to the company’s legacy of experience and reliability.”Keith Derman, partner and co-head of Ares Infrastructure and Power.
Starting with just 12 employees in 2004, the company has grown to a highly skilled team of more than 160 people.
