We believe solar energy is the key to a world where energy is clean, cost-effective, dependable, and accessible to all. Through data-driven innovation and unmatched expertise in design and engineering, we’re bringing forward-thinking climate solutions to life on a massive scale. With every next-generation plant we develop in partnership with utilities, corporates and community choice aggregators around the country, we underscore solar’s ability to affordably and reliably power everyday life with clean, renewable energy – day and night.
8minute is an industry leader in technology, engineering and innovation, with patented advancements driving power plant efficiencies that simultaneously reduce costs and enhance grid reliability. Engineers and scientists represent more than half of our team, and they’re committed to optimizing the value and performance of each project. We’re also constantly testing cutting-edge technology in pilot blocks on existing projects and at our own proprietary R&D facility – all aimed at enhancing our projects and driving down the cost of solar energy.
8minute is privately held and singularly focused on large-scale solar and solar-plus-storage development. This independence affords us the unique opportunity to explore the best technology choices and implementation for each project.Join Our Team
We conduct extensive impact, economic and environmental analyses and work closely with environmentalists early in our process to properly site projects and significantly mitigate potential risks down the road. This reputation for stewardship has earned support from leading environmental groups, such as the Sierra Club, Audubon California, Defenders of Wildlife and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
MEGAWATT HOURS PRODUCED BY PROJECTS TO DATE
We are delivering a new generation of smart solar power plants that prove solar energy is a cost-effective, reliable and long-term replacement for fossil fuels – even when the sun isn’t shining.
We fine-tune our projects to maximize value for landowners, public utilities, corporates and investors. 8minute’s unmatched ability to produce low-priced clean energy, and to deliver strong financial returns on large-scale solar and storage projects, makes clean energy the obvious choice for every stakeholder.
