    Utah clean energy

    Utah header Utah

    Together, we’re making a safe and responsible transition to clean energy in Utah.

    As an organization headquartered in Utah, AES is committed to bringing a safe and successful transition to clean energy, while also investing in our local and neighboring communities. As Utah establishes its leadership in solar generating capacity, ranking 10th among states, AES is developing and delivering solutions to help Utah optimize renewable generation and storage as part of a cleaner, more diverse energy resource portfolio. We are committed to helping the state achieve its goal of electric utilities generating 20 percent of their electricity through renewable energy by 2025.

    With a focus on solar energy and storage, we have more than 1,100 megawatts of planned development in Utah. Our projects consistently generate local jobs, community partnerships, and substantial property tax revenue for the state and local governments. We also invest in local nonprofits, education, and local businesses in striving to make Utah’s clean energy goals beneficial for everyone.

    How can you trust that we’re committed to delivering clean energy that works for you? Because we work and live here, too.

    We believe in being a good neighbor, ensuring responsible renewable energy development that benefits both the environment and local communities. That’s why we partner with communities to work together to support sustainable social and economic development.

    landowner

    Landowners

    We present landowners with new opportunities to capitalize on the value of their land while retaining ownership throughout the project life cycle.  For many, clean energy development is a welcome complement to current land use and an opportunity to diversify land investment while hedging against volatile commodity prices.  For other landowners, our projects offer an income stream and land-use option where none otherwise existed.

    Our teams and landowners work together, in partnership, from the beginning stages of site discussions, through permitting, construction, and operation. The landowner relationship with AES begins early, is built on trust, and open communication to ensure the partnership is beneficial for everyone.

    AES and SEI Solar Workforce Development Program

    Clover creek3

    AES has partnered with Solar Energy International, a leading solar training and educational non-profit, to provide solar workforce development and training in Utah. As part of that effort, AES has created an AES-funded scholarship, which provides financial assistance for 20 Utah residents to cover solar education tuition fees.

     

    The AES-SEI partnership includes two elements: the AES scholarship fund and consulting services for colleges and universities to provide career development for the future solar industry workforce. Both elements aim to stimulate local participation in the Utah clean energy industry through professional development and training, leading to employment in the solar energy industry.

     

    Individuals selected for the AES scholarship will enroll in SEI’s North America Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) PV Associates training program, which includes online solar system design and installation classes along with NABCEP PV Associate testing. By empowering soon-to-be solar energy experts with the necessary training, the AES Scholarship program will strengthen and build the growing Utah solar workforce.
