We’re addicted to pushing the boundaries of technology, engineering and design. Our dedication to R&D and unique technology-agnostic approach enables us to drive down costs, optimize performance and expand the market for clean energy that is dispatchable, more reliable than fossil fuel plants, and available day or night.
We look at power production through the eyes of utilities, corporates, landowners, communities and investors, then we tailor every project to maximize value across the board. Together, we’re shifting longstanding perceptions around renewable energy and bringing “smart generation” to the 21st century grid.
Our laser focus on utility-scale solar and energy storage enables us to consistently deliver projects from concept to completion – and to shatter industry records in the process. From the largest solar cluster in the U.S. to the lowest-cost solar-plus-storage PPA in history, 8minute is setting a new standard of excellence.
Eland Solar & Storage Center is the lowest-cost solar and energy storage project in the country. Designed to deliver clean energy both day and night, Eland will strengthen grid operations for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and deliver low-cost energy to nearly one million people in the Cities of Los Angeles and Glendale.
Status: Under Development
Capacity: 400 MWac with 1,200 MWh of storage
Offtakers: Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP)
8minute’s first project in Texas, Holstein 1 contains over 709,000 solar panels across approximately 1,300 acres in Nolan County, Texas. Construction began in the summer of 2019 and the project began commercial operations in the summer of 2020. The Holstein solar project powers the equivalent of 40,000 homes.
Capacity: 280 MW
Offtakers: J. Aron & Company LLC., a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs
The Mount Signal Solar Cluster comprises three solar farms, all originally developed by 8minute. At 800 MWdc, the Mount Signal solar cluster is the largest operating solar photovoltaic (PV) project in the nation and one of the largest solar complexes in the world.
Capacity: 800 MWdc
Offtakers: Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric
